You can get across the principals of programming easily because you need to learn very little before you can write a workable program, important with a child's short attention span. Once they understand just a handful of command and the extremely simple syntax they can let their imaginations run wild, while you sit and watch from a distance.</p> <p></p> <p>My first language?
