Review: What a unique career to teach to young girls, it’s not a job you think about but in this society it’s a very important one as technology is everywhere. I really love the way this was taught step by step for them to understand each and every aspect of programming.
I really love this series I’ve said that each time I’ve read one of these books, they are just so educational, so well made, they have wonderful picture that show you exactly what is being described, a likeable lead character in each book; and most importantly are teaching careers to young girls that will inspire them and help them.
