They skipped over Scratch but it is the bees knees for kids getting started.
 It is accessible and gender inclusive.  It allows kids to focus on logic
with no both about syntax.  Couple this with the Scratch website, and you
have  a place for kids to share their work and learn from what others have
done. If a kids likes something that someone else has produced they can
download, inspect the code and build on it. Their approach of imagine,
share, learn really is what happens.
