Beginners can get an introduction to Minecraft and Lego coding, Python and several other coding languages with the Kids Can Code series by Patricia Harris or the Kids Get Coding series by Heather Lyons.
Learn all things Scratch, from the basics to creating your own games with Coding Projects in Scratch or Coding Games in Scratch by Jon Woodcock.
