From Mary ...
"A child starts learning to read and write at age 5. Why canít they start learning to program then, too?
I am making Isla, a first programming language for children.
Iíll describe how I implemented the Isla compiler. Iíll describe the design of the Isla grammar. Why is there no punctuation? Why are expressions like sentences? How did I enable assignments, list manipulation and function calls in baby talk?"
You can try Isla out here https://github.com/maryrosecook/isla
You can learn more about Mary hear http://maryrosecook.com/
I also recommend playing a game she is working on http://emptyblack.com/play.html
