Hey! hello this reply made me happy! I would love to write a kids book on the topic as well, I've been thinking about it a lot. I would love to know more about your projects! About your questions, we usually sit and playfully try to recognize tech around us. I would go and ask them about the tech they use in their daily life (usually involving TV, videogames and such, minecraft...) and we discuss how those things work. I even asked a few times to play as if one of them were a robot and tell the other kids to make a "program" for their friend, involving dancing and similar, it's a lot of funm they laugh a lot and they understand the importance of precise commands. I sometimes bring up comic and fiction, for example I use Teen Titans and such to put examples, or things they like. I really love to think of those kind of activities.

Hey Paula β€”it's so nice when you find someone as excited about this!

I LOVE how you make the topic so playful and accessible. We need more of this. πŸ’™

About my books. You can read the last blog posts that I posted here on DEV to hear more about the ideas behind them. And this is the website zerusandona.com. The book series is called Zerus & Ona, a 0 and a 1 living inside computers and sharing their adventures in The Binary World.

I could talk about books, storytelling, and computers for hours! So, if you'd like to geek out together, this is my email miriam@zerusandona.com.

Happy to chat. :D
