Like all Humble Bundles, you pay what you want for this book bundle, with additional offerings unlocked at various payment levels. The most expensive is just $15 and comes with every book from every tier. A portion of every sale goes to charity.
At the $1 tier, the bundle is all about Scratch—and indeed, one of the default charities for this particular bundle is the Scratch Foundation. Chipping in a buck gets you the Official Scratch Jr. Book, 25 Scratch 3 Games for Kids, Build your Own Website, Make Your Own Scratch Games, and Super Scratch Gaming Adventure. For downtime, the $1 tier also has Lauren Ipsum: A Story About Computer Science and Other Improbable Things.
Finally, we’ve got the top tier at $15, which will have kids learning to code with Minecraft, and four different titles all about Python including how to do math with Python and how to make computer games.
Not a bad bundle at all to keep the tykes busy. If you’re looking to brush up on your own skills while you’re stuck at home, check out the “Land A Tech Job 2.0” bundle. It’s loaded with “For Dummies” books about a wide variety of tech topics and general life skills for job seekers.[Today’s deal: Humble Book Bundle: Coding Starter Kit By No Starch Press.]
