Reviews

“With no previous programming  experience, I found that  their Computer Programming Tutorials made computer programming both fun and easy to learn. Their customer service was also very eager to answer any questions that I might have. This combination of curriculum and customer service makes their tutorials attractive to both the Homeschool parent and ​their beginning student programmer.” 

“Recently I bought the Beginning Microsoft Small Basic for Homeschool 3 Pack Set for Ethan.  For the first few days I couldn’t get him off the computer!   I’m lucky enough to be able to just hand him the book and say, “There you are”, his eyes light up and my role as the ‘teacher’ is complete.”

We have enjoyed the first semester of Java. I have programmed in many languages including Java, and I have a BS in Computer Science. I found this course to be excellent to use to teach my son as a homeschooling dad.  Thanks for your great products.”

“Third Day Games would be thrilled if every child who played our video games would learn how to develop Bible-based Christian video games themselves. BibleByte Books produces a wonderful Computer Science For Kids Curriculum that we believe will help train up the next generation of Christian game developers. The games industry desperately needs talented game developers, who are also Christians, to help build the next generation of Bible-based Christian video games. Learning a computer programming language early in life will give your child a great head start in the wonderful field of computer programming and give them the opportunity to use their skills to further the Kingdom.”

- Bobby Wells, CEO, Third Day Games

“My son is 12 years old and is in the 7th grade. My son found this program extremely easy to use.  The material in the Computer Science for Kids program was presented in a way that even a middle school or high school student who has never seen a computer before would be able to pick up and follow the self-paced tutorial guides with ease.  There are more challenging exercises included that are intended for 7th through 12 graders, and he kept begging me to complete those as well. Of course I said yes. How often do I hear my son beg to do school work?  I think the Computer Science for Kids tutorials are a great introduction to computer programming for middle school students.”

“Computer Science for Kids has great curriculum for children who are interested in learning how to program games.  I think that it was important that the authors started with the history of the BASIC language and personal computers. I had so much fun in the early days programming my computer. I want my children to experience the joy of making a machine seem to think. After they finish learning Small Basic they can learn a more sophisticated language. They may decide to take programming in college and become a programmer.  My children liked the curriculum because it was on game programming.  All of us found that the curriculum was easy to use. The language of the text was easy to understand. The book was written with the child in mind, but as adult could use it and not feel that the exercises were too childish. We liked how the material was presented. The book starts off very simple. In each chapter you learn a new step while referring back to the previous steps. Some people might think that the curriculum is too slow, but by presenting the material the way the authors do you really learn the language. My children have also had fun doing the simple programs.”
