If I Were a Wizard Reviews
If I Were A Wizard introduces the concepts of coding to children (and adults) in this imaginative picture book.
Introducing coding principles to students can be an intimidating task, especially for educators (myself included) who don’t feel like they are a whiz at computer science. What I liked so much about this book is how it lays a foundation for a great discussion into the way technology connects to our everyday lives. Through storytelling, Paul’s children’s book makes these concepts relevant to students of all ages.
If I Were a Wizard is a fantastic storybook for young kids. The story is easy to follow along and enjoyable. It isn't until the end of the story, where the author explains how computers and coding are used all throughout everyday life. It's the perfect bridge between the computers all around us and computer science. Coding is everywhere, now the kids notice it more! Great book, great author!
It's only 27 pages - not what was expected. Compared to other edtech books, 27 pages is just not worth the $12 dollars I had to spend. I'm from Africa so converting $12 to my currency is a lot of cash. So I expect a bit more for my money.
A great book to introduce the concept of coding to our two sons (age 4 and 8). A welcome addition to our home library full of wonder and inspiration!
The book is not really connected to coding.
