Designing Digital Games by Derek Breen

The book, Designing Digital Games by Derek Breen is a fun way for kids to learn creating games with scratch! There is so much fun when it comes to playing games, but how about creating some for yourself. I'm sure kids would enjoy creating their own games and having others play them. Well, this book is the perfect guide on how to create games with Scratch.
I also would recommend this for beginners who want to play around with the site and create games for the first time, even if you aren't a child. However, the book is made to be simpler, like most dummy books. Though the use of a child's book is that it's much more interesting and exciting to read. There are more photos and easy to follow steps made for anyone to understand and have fun using. The guide covers everything you will need to create a few fun games with Scratch.
I myself have tried scratch and found that a book like this beside me can be a huge help then searching online for the answers. It's so much better to have the information right in front and in one place verse the internet and search for hours. Plus, the book is so attractive and it just makes you want to learn to code and build your own game. With that said, when you read this guide book, you'll understand what Scratch was meant for, the icons and tips you'll see on each page, and also
setting up an account and beginning on your way to creating with Scratch.

It's very easy to read and the images really help! I love how easy this is for children and adults who want to learn as well. All I can say is why not join in the fun of coding and game creating with your child if you do then this book will help!
