A delightful activity-based adventure story that introduces young readers to the basic concepts of coding.

Meet Ruby - a small girl with a huge imagination. In Ruby's world, anything is possible if you set your mind to it. As Ruby embarks on her adventure, kids will be introduced through storytelling to the basic concepts of coding. With activities included in every chapter, future kid coders will be thrilled to put their own imaginations to work.


Code is the twenty-first century literacy, and the need for people to speak the ABCs of programming is imminent. Our world is increasingly run by software, and we need more diversity in the people who are building it

Linda Liukas

[Linda Liukas] wants kids to understand and embrace basic computer logic so that they later formulate code in the same effortless and creative way they build structures with LEGO
