Programming Books for Babies and Toddlers

As part of my market research for our children’s book The ABCs of Programming I spent a lot of time finding children’s picture books aimed at babies and toddlers. There were surprisingly few books targeted towards this age, that just explained the basics of programming and computers. My criteria for what counts as “targeting babies and toddlers” is:

  1. Is colorful.
  2. Takes less than 10 minutes to read.
  3. Doesn’t try to explain bubble sort or consistent hashing to someone who might not be potty trained.

Below is the list. If I’ve missed a book, please shoot me an email at
