Product Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

Part how-to, part girl-empowerment, and all fun, from the leader of the movement championed by Sheryl Sandberg, Malala Yousafzai, and John Legend.

 
Since 2012, the organization Girls Who Code has taught computing skills to and inspired over 40,000 girls across America. Now its founder, and author Brave Not Perfect, Reshma Saujani, wants to inspire you to be a girl who codes! Bursting with dynamic artwork, down-to-earth explanations of coding principles, and real-life stories of girls and women working at places like Pixar and NASA, this graphically animated book shows what a huge role computer science plays in our lives and how much fun it can be. No matter your interest—sports, the arts, baking, student government, social justice—coding can help you do what you love and make your dreams come true. Whether you’re a girl who’s never coded before, a girl who codes, or a parent raising one, this entertaining book, printed in bold two-color and featuring art on every page, will have you itching to create your own apps, games, and robots to make the world a better place.

Review

Raves for Girls Who Code:

"The world is advancing in technology and women and girls need to educate ourselves on computer science to catch up. I don''t know how to code but this book has inspired me to learn. I encourage all girls to read this book and be empowered to change the world through technology." —Malala Yousafzai, Student, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Co-Founder of the Malala Fund

“Reshma Saujani and Girls Who Code are changing the face of tech, one girl at a time. This book is an invitation for every girl to join the movement for a more equal and better future.” —Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and founder of LeanIn.Org & OptionB.Org

“I''m so excited for my daughter to know that her possibilities and potential are limitless. And I truly believe that technology can inspire and empower our daughters to be great leaders and visionaries. I''m glad this book exists to show them the way.”—John Legend

“Girls deserve the opportunity to fall in love with computers. This book, which makes computer science accessible, clear, and engaging, will help provide it. And it won’t be just girls who benefit. The more women leaders in this field, the more innovative and impactful technology will be for everyone.”—Melinda Gates, philanthropist

“Every industry needs diversity of thought. Girls Who Code is empowering young women with access to the skills they need to become the next generation of leaders in technology.”—Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Square and Twitter

* "This timely, well-written title is an excellent resource for budding coders."— School Library Journal, starred review

"This book has two focuses: encouraging girls that coding is something they can do and [making]programming relevant to their specific interests. "— Kirkus Reviews

Note: This book is not associated with The Coder School.

“Learn to code” in the title is misleading. My daughter was really disappointed that the book doesn’t actually do any real teaching. Instead it’s basically cute stories about women who code. Not helpful at all.

This isn''t a book about how to code. Instead, the emphasis is on WHY learning to code is so important, and how awesome projects can be conceived and completed by girls who know how to code, so it''s more motivational than technical. As a donor to an organization that serves homeless preschoolers, elementary age children and youth, I am excited to encourage staff to start a Girls Who Code club. The barrier is having enough computers, so I''m looking for assistance in providing the necessary equipment. In my opinion, any organization that works with low-income families and youth can enrich their programs significantly by sponsoring Girls Who Code clubs. Perhaps equipment could be donated, purchased through the help of service organizations, or obtained through a grant from a non-profit such as United Way. According to the Girls Who Code website, instructors do not need to be coders or computer experts, as a curriculum and support are provided to each club. That said, it might be helpful to recruit tech savvy high school or college students to act as instructors or instructional assistants Club benefits extend into college mentoring and even post-education job placement, according to website information. Every child in poverty deserves the opportunity to achieve at high levels and to enter the work force having mastered skills that are much in demand. Girls Who Code may well be the way forward for underserved/disadvantaged young girls.

I bought this book after hearing about it from friends and reading rave reviews. I have an almost 6-year old who told me the other day she "loves" this book - although I think it''s for the high school age demographic, I love that my daughter will pick it up and read it a bit at a time. She is learning about something I can''t teach her about firsthand, and which will undoubtedly become central to education for her generation. I hope that it inspires her to learn to code - and I love that she is growing up thinking that this is something that "girls just do".

I am a woman who has been in the software industry for almost 20 years. I have seen the lack of women in this field and I wonder why. This book was recommended to me by a coworker as a great gift for girls. My 12 year old granddaughter really liked it and seemed excited to read it. I would be thrilled if she got interested in coding, but even if she just dabbles for fun it will be good for her to realize that no field is off limits to her because she is a girl.

If you, your child (of any gender) or basically anyone you know is interested in learning ''to code'' - get them this book! It''s a brilliant, easy to read, entertaining, and highly educational book. This encapsulates the idea of learning the logic of computer programing independently of any particular language - a brilliant way to teach the basics. The incorporation of the fictional GWC (Girls Who Code) girls from the fiction books adds a fun twist to help move the reader from chapter to chapter. This helps motivate and connect the content and makes this an engaging read rather than a textbook. The quality of information, however, makes it the best ''intro to coding'' textbook for this age group I''ve ever seen. Highly recommend.

The book is full of generic advice and statements about career prospects and plenty of nonsense. No wonder we have so few women programmers if they waste time on this kind of content. Save your money and buy one of those "20 games with scratch" instead, if your daughter won''t develop any interest in computer science after that, 150 pages of comics about empowered women featuring all races, colours, religions and shapes having meetings at work won''t change it.

This was a big hit with an 11year old girl. She devoured it in a weekend. It''s inspired her to join the school coding club and her obvious interest in the book has piqued the interest of her 9year old sister, who has now started asking about coding.
