I came looking for info about mods. My 10-year-old son keeps asking for them, but I’m having a hard time finding where to go to get them, and how will they affect our computer? THEN I need to know how to download them, etc. Did you do a post about those things yet?
“Minecraft for Dummies” was written by a 15 year old player and it has been selling extremely well around the world (particularly to parents trying to decide whether to buy Minecraft or parents of current players trying to make sense of what they keep talking about!)
Minecraft is such a creative sandbox with lots of learning opportunities to go along with the fun. Trying giving your kids some of these Minecraft challenges.
Here is a link to a decent overview of Minecraft and some of the benefits and issues with the game for very young children. (Note this is my personal site.)
