COMPUTER ACTIVITIES FOR THE YOUNG CHILD COMPUTER PLAYGROUND, by Mary Jean Winter, is based on a child's natural interest in words, games and graphics, A collection of BASIC computer activities for the Atari 400/800/1200, this book is intended for children in grades 2 through 6. Each activity is presented as a "Problem" in a workbook format. Children will find the problems interesting, fun and geared to their level of understanding. They'll type in and run sample programs β€” learn how to modify them β€” and complete partially written programs, everything is kept simple so the child learns the programming process step-by-step. As the child progresses, he or she will learn how to use many of the features of BASIC β€” PRINT, GOTO, INPUT, FOR...NEXT, IF...THEN, POKE and PEEK commands are a few. Working in this manner, the child will build up a collection of programs which are understandable and entertaining. COMPUTER PLAYGROUND is illustrated with over 70 color cartoons and pictures to color. It's BASIC programming playtime!
