Emmy in the Key of Code
This book hit me hard. It felt incredibly personal for a number of reasons and I don’t want to give too much away as there’s a big plot point that resonates with me. But I’ll give away the easy connection. This year, in addition to my role as a school librarian, I am also a STEM teacher and I’ve been loving straddling the line on both of these roles in my school community. As a result I’ve been diving deeper into a world I’d dabbled in in the past. The world of code. I’m beginning at the beginning as they say. In kindergarten, we introduce coding using a program called Kodable, so right along with my students, I started on level one. I plan to work through the code.org courses following my successful completion of our kindergarten level of Kodable. All that to say, I GET this book, the poetry of coding, the music of coding, the beauty of it all and the endless possibility of it all. I’m not sure Emmy in the Key of Code will speak to all readers, but boy did it speak to me.
