We talk about some of the differences between Logo packages in these pages. There’s also a cross-reference of common Logo commands in the appendix. Through our cybernetic conversations, I’ve again discovered how much fun learning can be, on and off the computer. And, of course, there’s Audrey Muller, who has survived the invasion of Turtle androids into her home and still managed to maintain a sense of stability all these years.

I'm going to assume that anyone reading this review will want to know two things: What is Logo? How well is this book written? I'll start by saying that IMO this is the best book out there which teaches basic computer programming skills--and it just happens to be in the Logo language. (age appropriateness: kids somewhere between elementary and junior high)It comes with a CD and has LOGO software on it for Windows/Dos/Mac/etc.
I have a couple of young kids and I wanted to teach some computer programming to them. I'd love to teach them some assembly and C++ but those languages are complex and huge. I figured they'd become bored -- get mired down in the rules and regulations of the language without experiencing the fun of programming. What LOGO does so well is get people programming without getting bogged down by the language. I have to add that I was under the misconception that LOGO was a whimpy-kiddie language...sure,great for teaching programming to kids, but shallow and limited. I mean, not too many universities preach LOGO, right! But LOGO is robust and extremely versatile in its own right. Go ahead, build robots, weather stations, etc.,...it makes doing these kinds of projects inviting and fun. You might misplace the TV in the house for a while!
Lastly, if you want to start with a little more advanced LOGO (maybe you have a background in a comp lang already-ie. BASIC, your in HS or older)then turn to Brian Harvey's "Excellent Adventure"
(wink, wink)--"Computer Science Logo Style-2nd ed"--vol 1,2,3. This series does for the older student what J. Muller does for the younger. I'm rating "The Great Logo Adventure" 4.5 stars--I don't give 5 stars because I believe there is always room for improvement; but darn if I know what to improve.

I am hoping to use this book to as resource material to lead an after-school program at the local elementary school. I was looking on Amazon to see whether it would be affordable to purchase as the curriculum. It appears to be currently out of print (April 2006).

However, this book seems to have been made freely available for download by the author. Amazon review guidelines prohibit URLs, but if you search for a free educational version of Logo, you'll probably find one by a company called Softronix. The links are on their MSWLogo page.

This is the only book I have found that attempts to communicate programming (the "traditional" text based kind of programming) to elementary age children. If anyone reading this review knows of another, please contact me!
The book works after a fashion, with liberal corrections and advice from a highly available mentor. The parent/teacher must be a programmer to have any hope of guiding the elementary student through the various errors and omissions. Be careful of handing this book unsupervised to your child! It is full of questionable advice such as "draw on your computer screen with erasable marker", and references to files on the CD ROM that are in different directory, etc.
