I think the biggest difference is that they worked hard to keep answering that underlying question of why. They don't just tell kids, "Do it this way." They explain why. And by tying each page of the book back to larger coding concepts that cross into every computer language, they teach kids how to think like programmers vs. teach kids just how to use Scratch.

Congratulations for the book!
Just curious how is it different than other books (though there are not many) ?
And what sort of methodology you have used in the book.
Will it interest kids ? may be even adults
