We were really impressed with this series from QED-publishing and the books How to Code and How to Cook in 10 Easy Lessons are just brill!!
They are very attractively illustrated and the hard covers and spiral binding make them very practical and long lasting.
How to Code by Sean McManus gives plans that in 10 lessons, helps to understand coding, use Scratch to start programming, manipulate graphics, fix bugs and just about everything you need to know about coding to get started.
Coding is not one of my strengths and to be honest I haven't even tried,we have a team thought that 'even I' may now be able to code!
Sean has a brilliant website included in the book index, along with other really useful stuff.
How to Cook in 10 Easy Lessons by Wendy Sweetser gives a whole range of skills for cooking in 10 lessons. From peeling and grating to making sweet and savoury sauces, each section has 4 recipes that I immediately wanted to try; carrot and pecan muffins, chicken satay or vegetable fried rice.
A great series, 2 spectacularly good books. We recommend for children from 8 years and onwards in schools and in the homes.
Would make some excellent presents in Father Christmas's sack!
