Is It Any Good?

KidsRuby gives some good background on programming and lets kids play and create using a fairly easy-to-understand coding language. Unfortunately, there's a lot of text to wade through, which might cause kids to quickly lose interest. Although the information doesn't offer a ton of programming instruction and can sometimes be a little unclear, KidsRuby can serve as a good jumping off point to help kids learn what programming is -- and try their hand at using it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
