“In school, kids are being taught what algorithms are, how functions work, etc. but they’re not being taught how they can use this information. Lanie Learns to Code is a children’s book that teaches kids how they can use coding in their everyday lives. Lanie Learns to Code is a book about a girl named Lanie and her best friend Charlie, who are excited about learning the technology of coding. While taking coding classes at their local elementary school, Lanie thinks of a wonderful idea to use coding to help find her lost puppy, Daisy. With the help of her school’s coding teacher, Ms. Peterson, and the support of her best friend Charlie, she builds a startup to not only help find her puppy Daisy but help other people find their lost pets too. “
the Lanie Learns to Code Book is now available from just $20 or roughly £16 and will be delivered in time for the holiday season during December 2019.
