For every letter in the alphabet, there is a word that is related to coding. There is also a description of the word in a concise paragraph. This book is a primer for children who are interested in learning more about coding and going into Computer Science. 

Palo Alto, California, January 31, 2023, There are thousands of books published every year for young adults and children. Once in a while, a book is published that can send a child or young adult on a trajectory to success. Lauren’s new book, The Coding Alphabet is just such a book. It is concise and to the point.

When young folks think about computers and coding, it can be very intimidating because they do not understand all of the computer and coding jargon. What Lauren did was to take the most important computer and coding words and link them to the alphabet. This may sound simplistic, but it delivers great clarity to the young minds considering the field.

The Coding Alphabet has already garnered rave reviews since its release. Kudos to the author are in order. It has become the #1 New Release in Children’s Computer Programming and is also being translated into Spanish, French and Chinese. Yasmine, a Verified Reader, had this to say, “5.0 out of 5 stars, Great book for kids. Great book with useful coding information!”

Lanre, a Verified Reader, made these comments, “5.0 out of 5 stars. Coding for beginners is an excellent book for beginners of Coding.”

About The Author:

Lauren McDonald is a 14 years old and currently in the 9th grade. She attends Castilleja School in Palo Alto which is an all-girls school. Some of her hobbies include coding, playing the piano, and embroidering. She has been coding since 2017 and is proficient in Python, Swift, and JavaScript.

Lauren’s parents are not in the tech industry so when she started learning about coding she had to research coding definitions on her own because the first step to learning any language is definitions. She would like to see more girls interested in STEM.

Lauren enjoys hanging out with her friends and she loves freshly made pancakes and participating in her school’s robotics team where she is able to contribute her coding skills.

She is also a classically trained pianist and started playing the piano when she was 4 years old and have continued playing ever since. In 2020, she received the Certificate of Merit in piano. Also in 2020, after her grandfather purchased her an embroidery machine for Christmas, she started to use the artistic side of herself. She has embroidered clothing and tote bags for herself, family, and friends.
