As a programmer myself I understand all too well that there is a difference between building something with direct instruction and understanding enough to create on your own. My son has been working on his second game (one he jumped to at the end of the book) for a couple of days now. The book seems to do a good job of explaining the logic behind the code in a way that he can understand. I have no doubt that once he has a few more projects under his belt my son will be able to build something on his own without instruction.
I have enjoyed programming since I was young, but never quite knew where to go in order to learn at that young of an age. I am glad that these types of resources are available for my children. Maybe neither my oldest son or any of his siblings will work in computer programming as adults, but I know that the ability to understand logic and reasoning will benefit them no matter what they do.
If you are starting with a younger child you may want to start with the "Coding with Scratch Workbook" in order to introduce the concepts more slowly. This book has been a perfect starter for my older child. It doesn't get him outside the way I'd like, but at least he is intellectually engaged and excited!
