The following books will give your child some great ideas on different programs they can create using Scratch, and they are available via Amazon:
While these Scratch coding resources will help give your child some ideas it is always exciting to see where their own creativity will take them so also encourage your child to try new things on their own using Scratch. We look forward to seeing the amazing Scratch programs your child will create on their own. Also, feel free to email us your child’s work for a chance to get featured on one of our blogs!
