An Excerpt from the Foreword
"Scratch is more than a piece of software. It is part of a broader educational mission. We designed Scratch to help young people prepare for life in today's fast-changing society. As young people create Scratch projects, they are not just learning how to write computer programs. They are learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively—essential skills for success and happiness in today's world.
As you read this book, let your imagination run wild. What will you create with Scratch?"
—Professor Mitchel Resnick, Director, MIT Scratch Team, MIT Media Lab
"Walks readers through a series of extremely well-designed game-design projects...a gentle learning curve for mastering Scratch’s many powerful features."
"With endless educational possibilities, this resource is a must for any STEM or STEAM collection."
"This book is superb. A terrific resource for middle or higher grade educators who are looking for great Scratch projects that align to other content areas."

When he received this book he immediately dove right into it. Within about an hour he had Scratch set up on the family computer and created a very rudimentary game (a cat that shot fireballs at the enemy). Now, several weeks later, he has created some very nifty things. Moreover, his eight year old sister has also gotten into Scratch and is making her own games.
This book is a terrific entry into the Scratch community. There are numerous online resources, including user group support, that helps my kids when I'm not able. The community even allows users to upload their Scratch programs for user review and comment.
It's really a fantastic thing. I don't mean to gush but my kids have really latched onto Scratch.
go for it!
I wish they had this when I was a kid!
The Kindle version looks great on the Fire - just like the book. And the companion downloads make it easy so the kid can focus on the programming and have all the graphics ready.
Since his birthday was a few days later, we decided to order him his own copy. He was elated when he unwrapped his brand new copy of Super Scratch! He wanted to run to the computer and start playing immediately. My husband is an amateur programmer and he couldn't be more proud of our son. It's awesome to hear them talk about it together. Definitely a bonding moment.
I highly recommend this book. If your child is at all interested in the computer they'll probably love Super Scratch as well!
