Computer – Hardware – Program
Two friends, Bokar and Myriam, explain to young readers how computers work. They introduce the computer hardware as well as various software programs. »Attention!«-signs clearly point out possible problems while explanations of special terms and examples for practise are provided throughout the book in small boxes. An additional glossary contains important definitions and the little questionnaire at the end serves as a short test of the knowledge gained. In a playful manner, this non-fiction title sparks the readers’ interest in an object of everyday life that no one can avoid nowadays. The two protagonists’ child-friendly approach makes it easy for readers to learn how this machine works and discover all the different possibilities it offers. (7+)
