As of 2004, children are taught to use applications likeWord, etc... in elementary school. Their first experiencewith Computer Science might be an AP Computer Science coursein High School. Java is the language of choice. Previouslyit was C++, so there are old AP Computer Science booksfeaturing C++ still available, but they are being phasedout.
Cook and Manning (1999) - Why Doesn't My Floppy Disk Flop?
It is very strange to find a computer book for kids from the late 90's,but I'll take what I can get.
by Ron White is a great overview of how everything in your computer works. The book has fantastic illustrations and is not as overwhelming as some other computer books.
