    One thought on “Hello Ruby”

    1. 1.5 stars for the story and 3.5 stars for the Activities.I started reading this book after watching part of Linda Liukas' TED Talk, which infers that Hello Ruby is a "delightful" way to introduce kids to coding. Is it really that delightful? Methinks it's a bit overhyped. The book is beautifully produced with cute illustrations throughout; it has an interesting story, but the plotting feels contrived and doesn't compare well against a good "proper" picture book. Ironically (for a book related to [...]

    2. Charming little book. The story was ok, but the best part of the book is in the end, where you can practise thinking like a programmer. The tasks are simple, easy and helpful.

    3. Nice book showing and explaining computational thinking to babies. I had fun reading it and my daughter enjoyed story and some of the activities. However i think she is just too young now to appreciate everything in this book. So we will be coming back to this book for sure.If your child is 5-6 years old, this book can provide fun for a child and you for many hours.

    4. Linda Liukas has done great things encouraging children, especially girls, to learn coding. Her concept for this book is definitely a 5, but the execution was poor. Linda Liukas would have had better results if she had collaborated with a successful children's book author. I do however encourage knowledgeable parents to use this book with their children who might be so inclined. First, Liukas, while trying to create a book that would be attractive to girls, created a book that will turn off boys [...]

    5. It's a cute little story book about a little girl finding some gems her Father left her. It's total fantasy and impossible.So, the author made up a number of activities - which you have to redo at home to complete them and explain to your child - age 5 to 8.Personally, 3 stars for idea but you'd be better off buying Lollipop Logic.

    6. Five stars for the idea! It is absolutley fantastic to see how catching and exciting can something so practical be. I enjoyed it and my daughter (6 y) loves it. Also the work book part is cool. Reminds me exactly my beginners coding lessons but is more clear and easier to understand.Would like to find more similarly smart books, games etc to kids.

    7. Fiction Twin Text:Hautman, P. (2016). The Flinkwater factor: A novel in five thrilling episodes. New York: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers.Rationale for twin text selection:I chose this selections because of its connection with technology. In the non-fiction text you are learning how to use code to create computer programs. In my fiction text it is about how a computer program is putting life as they know it at stake and how they must go about solving this problem by creating a new [...]

    8. Very cute and, I think, very effective at introducing kids (or anyone, really) to general computer/coding principles. The first 2/3 or so is a story that introduces problem-solving, and then the last 1/3 is an activity book that teaches terms and lets you try out what you've learned. Very fun, and the illustrations are adorable, too!

    9. Bardzo elementarne wprowadzenie do alfabetu programowania, przedstawione jako historia małej dziewczynki Ruby, której tata pozostawił mapę i zadanie do wykonania. Od strony programistycznej autorka pokazuje, czym jest algorytm i wzorce programowania w praktyce, przełożone na proste historie, jeden do jednego w stosunku język programowania - język ojczysty (bajkowy). Popełnia przy tym podstawowy błąd, odcinając dzieci od wprowadzenia do języka pojęć, które są elementarne w trakci [...]

    10. It's a cute idea and I really wanted to like it, but I thought the execution needed work. The story was kind of confusing, and while it's full of in jokes, the kids won't get them, and parents who don't work in tech probably won't either. The exercises at the end were good, although most of them were familiar to me from CS Unplugged -- but I guess if you want to present them to kids without them being part of a curriculum, this works pretty well. I thought the activity about the foxes probably w [...]

    11. I would classify this as a hybrid between a picture book and a chapter book. I think this book is a good first step to computational thinking for everybody. There are activities to try at home, as well as a glossary of terms which I feel is helpful for young readers.

    12. My daughter (she is 5 years old) loves this book. We read it together and did some of the exercises. I also got her a game (a mouse that can be programmed to navigate a maze) and she got it right away. Cool!

    13. Itse seikkailu oli ihan hyvä, mutta en kamalasti pitänyt työkirjasta. Olen ilmiselvästi liian vanha lukemaan tätä.

    14. Great introduction for young people to computer science and computational thinking. Love the use of stories and clear definitions of key terms.

    15. Now that I’ve read this book, I think I understand coding now. It’s a great introduction to the computational thinking necessary to understand how to code for kids.

    16. Buy this book for the activities. The picture book section is problematic at best and downright confusing. However, it is a good way to teach both adults and young children about rudimentarycomputational thinking. Young parents can easily find activities that they can incorporate into their daily conversations and activities with their children. Don't read the picture book to a child without pre-reading and editing it into something intelligible.

    17. Hello Ruby is an interesting hybrid of chapter book and activity book. Oddly, though, the activities are included in the back half of the book and not in or at the end of each chapter. The introduction also says that the book is designed for a parent to read the story to their child(ren) and work through the activities together.The story is cute and simple with a pretty easy reading level (with some help a second grader could manage), however it jumps from something realistic into what I think i [...]

    18. I had high expectations of this book. This summer Linda Liukas spoke at a conference about her book and the theme of the book. She had such a positive energy and enthousiasm. I really liked the illustrations of the book, they are soooo cute! And I also like the idea behind the book. Especially the fact that the book focusses on general concepts and not on a specific language for example. Because of this the book stays relevant. However, I expected more of the story itself. It is really short and [...]

    19. I thought it was quite cute, but wonder if some of the ideas are going to come across as well to kids perhaps that depends on the kids and the parents I'll be sending it off to my nieces and perhaps will get a bit of a review from them.I found the story at the beginning a little confusing, but it has some clear points that come across too. I particularly like the clarity of instructions. "Ruby doesn't like to be told what to do. Sometimes this means trouble - especially if the instructions are u [...]

    20. It's difficult to go anywhere in this world without seeing the influence of a computer. I wanted our library to have a book on coding, so I picked this one up. Good points: Liukas offers a simple introduction to programming terminology and methods through a story about Ruby finding gems. Before Ruby starts the search, she needs a plan. Once on the search she encounters numbers, sequencing, booleans, etc. Disappointments: Liukas rarely explains how things actually relate to coding. There are some [...]

    21. This isn't a book you read for the story--it's really more for the activities at the end. In fact, I found myself reading a chapter, flipping to the back and reading the corresponding activities, and then going back for the next chapter, and repeat.I'm a nerd in many other ways, but computers/coding is not one of them. So this book wasn't really for me. I don't really think it has a place on my library shelf--wait, hear me outYeah, it's a picture book, but the text is too difficult for it to go [...]

    22. Koodauksen saloihin voi sukeltaa monella tavalla - tänä vuonna on ilmestynyt jo kolme lasten koodauskirjaa, mikä ennakoi ensi vuoden uutta OPSia. Linda Liukas on parhaasta päästä - niin idolina kuin kirjailijanakin :). Tehtävät ja niiden kautta aukeavat vaikeatkin käsitteet ovat parhautta.Olisin toivonut, että lopun tehtävät olisi merkitty itse tarinaan, jotta ensi kertaa kirjaa selailevakin olisi ymmärtänyt rakenteen. Olen kuullut kommentteja, että tarina tuntui pettymykseltä ja [...]

    23. Probably 3.5 stars. This book begins with a story that I think is supposed to represent a computer program, but that aspect didn't make sense at first. The second half of the book is comprised of activities that connect to the story. These introduce readers to programming language and logical thinking. They sort of work. I had a lot of trouble with the selection section on page 92 because the examples read from right to left. At least I think they do - I could be more lost than I think. Chunks o [...]

    24. Ajattelin, että tietokoneinsinöörin vaimona voisin neljnnesvuosisadan jälkeen yrittää päästä vähän jyvälle siitä, mistä ohjelmoinnissa on kysymys. Tämä kehuttu lastenkirja vaikutti olevan matalimman kynnyksen polku koodausviisauden äärelle. Ja kylläpä olikin mainio kirja! Todella hauskalla tavalla oli esitetty lapsille koodauksen perusperiaatteita, ja samalla faktoitettu niin, että aikuisellekin oli kirjasta iloa (täytyy tunnustaa että yhden kurssin verran olen ohjelmointi [...]

    25. Excellent Programming Primer for ALL AgesAs an adult just jumping into pursuing a degree in IT, this was an excellent and whimsical way to get an introduction to programming and coding. The artistry involved in the illustrations were amazing and as a grown up girl, seeing Ruby as the protagonist and an incredible problem solver was refreshing and encouraging! Everyone could benefit from reading this book! If only to understand why the IT department responds the way they do! Well done!

    26. Won from Giveaway.Adorable book! I feel like there is a lot going on as far as content goes for this book, it seems a bit overwhelming for a child. However, I do believe the author's purpose was very obvious and overall I great idea. The thing I loved most about this book is the activities in the back that really could change the ways of thinking for young children as they do them. This is a book I will hold on to for my own children to look at and read. ** illustrations are super cute, fun to [...]
