My app review of Scratch Junior got published in the International Journal of People-Oriented Programming, 4(1), pages 50-55.

As a simple 'app review' I'm quite surprised the publisher put it behind a paywall, and so I've put a copy here on my Blog site where it can be freely accessed (with the journal publisher's permission).

Its linked here as a .pdf file for your convenience:

I highly recommend it if you are thinking of getting a 7 to 9 year old into Coding - its very suitable for that purpose.

Enjoy, Steve
