Agent Asha: Mission Shark Bytes
About this deal
This is a great book for kids usually more interested in screens than books such as my son who was bouncing with enthusiasm with the idea that there is an app which links into a book. The book comes with an associated app- CSA World which has a real flavour of the book, the games require children to think about programming which is fast becoming an essential life skill. The story is a great way to engage young readers in coding and critical-thinking as it combines STEM with exciting adventures.
