“Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python” is a free book that teaches you how to program in the Python programming language. Each chapter gives you the complete source code for a new game, and then teaches the programming concepts from the example.
“Invent with Python” was written to be understandable by kids as young as 10 to 12 years old, although it is great for anyone of any age who has never programmed before.
This second edition has revised and expanded content, including using the Pygame library to make games with graphics, animation, and sound.
You can buy it or read/download it online CC version.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Wow! Thanks for posting this!
Just last week, my son asked me if I would help him make a video game. He’s a little young yet to actually do the programming (he just turned 6), but he’s drawing all the art work and helping me design the gameplay. Although I’ve never programmed in Python before, I was thinking that this project would be a good excuse to learn it. This book looks like it will be a good resource to get us started.
