I just stumbled across some old 1997 Logo books in my library, from
when I was playing with it.
When I was in grade school in 1936, computers were not even around.
Set of 3 volumes by Brian Harvey, total of about 1,000 pages.
(the books are about 8 x 9 inches in size)
"Computer Science Logo Style", 2nd Ed.
(3 seperate volumes, about 360 pgs each)
I do not know if there any more recent volumes of this nature around.
Volume-1 starts out easy, defining basic Logo concepts.
By volume-3, these are the chapter headings:
Algorithms and Data Structures
Programming Language Design
Programming Language Implementation
...all done with Logo code.
It is a very good set of somewhat dated books about serious Logo
programming, very suitable for further education of students who
exhibit an interest in the introductory courses of Logo offered by some
