This is not strictly a geographically-related post, but I love all things python and suppose that you might as well.
I found a kid's book on learning python for application in Minecraft this morning. I have a nine-year-old at home and while he's a pretty studious little fellow in general, any sentence with "learn" in it will undoubtably be received with more enthusiasm if it also has the word "Minecraft" in it.
If you have wee ones at home, or if you're a crafter of mines yourself of course, you might enjoy this. I'll post a review once our copy arrives and the halfling and I have had a chance to peruse it further.
