The explanation of String formatting needs to be updated. We don't do embedded values using %s anymore.
I recommend skipping the chapters on Turtle Graphics and tkinter.
The introductory chapter on classes and objects is not bad, but the topic is beyond what most kids will need, and they should really focus on imperative / procedural programming first using just lists and dictionaries as their basic data structures.
little parental help here and there and they will be on there way 10+
My son and I do it together. I don't think he would do it on his own though.
