How to Code a Sandcastle (How to Code with Pearl & Pascal, #1)

From the computer science nonprofit Girls Who Code comes this lively and funny story introducing kids to computer coding concepts.Pearl and her trusty rust-proof robot, Pascal, need to build a sandcastle before summer vacation is over, and theyre going to do it using code. Pearl breaks the big we-need-a-sandcastle problem into smaller steps, then uses conditionals, loops, and other basic coding concepts to tell Pascal exactly what to do. But building a sandcastle isnt as easy as it sounds when surfboards, mischievous dogs, and coding mishaps get in the way! Just when it looks like the sandcastle might never work, Pearl uses her coding skills to save the day and create something even better: a gorgeous sandcastle kingdom!...

How to Code a Sandcastle (How to Code with Pearl & Pascal, #1) Reviews

  • Debbie Tanner

    This adorable little book demonstrates the very basics of coding in how to build a sandcastle. It's simply written (so everyone, even Grandmas who think they can't get coding, will totally get it) and the pictures are so cute. Everybody's going to love this one!

  • Caitlin Zonder

    Yet another amazing book by Josh Funk. It is such a clever way to teach the basics of coding. It would be a great read for anyone who wants to understand what coding is. I seriously think my mother needs to read this! Kids will enjoy this as both a story and a learning tool.

  • Tracy

    Thanks to the Kid Lit Exchange for the review copy. All opinions are my own.

    On the last day of summer, Pearl and her robot Pascal haven't successfully built a sandcastle. So they decide to code one. The book uses this simple task to explain how coding works, including how coding can be useful when something goes wrong. Not to worry--if you've saved all your work, you can try, try again.

    I'm about at the same level as my kids in my understanding of coding, so we all learned something from the boo

    This is the first picture book I have seen about coding; hooray that it had a poc, girl as the MC! Cute illustrations.

  • Lynn

    In the Girls Who Code series, this cheery picture book introduces the basic idea and commands of coding as a little girl works to have her robot build a sandcastle.

    It went on a bit too long for my taste but I'm not terribly interested in coding. Athough this is certainly more painless than my Fortran classes a thousand years ago ;-) It will be interesting to see how a young audience reacts to the book.

  • Michele Knott

    This is a book that will teach a wide audience. Between the curriculum ties (STEM, coding, how to book) and it being a picture book in the “girls who code” series (check out the chapter books), there are going to be a lot of readers for this book!

  • Ro

    I originally purchased this book because I have so far liked all books by Josh Funk. As a librarian who teaches coding to her students K-6 I have used the code.org curriculum, and although for the most part it is fantastic, I was never very excited about the "unplugged" activities that were available for younger coders. How to Code a Sandcastle will be my go to book anchor from now on! It takes a familiar activity, be it because the reader has engaged in this activity or has been exposed to it b ...more

    A little Brown girl just wants to build a sandcastle at the beach. She realizes she can use code to teach her robot Pascal how to build an epic sandcastle! Funk's sense of humor is great, as usual, and I love how he makes coding simple and easy to understand for children. Palacios' illustrations are lovely and will make you yearn for a warm sunny day at the beach. Great first collab between GIRLS WHO CODE & Penguin. #GirlsinStem #SummerRead #PictureBooks #DiverseBooks
