The Pirate and R is a simple introduction to the statistical software R, specifically aimed at future data scientists.

My Review
Pirate and R is a fun, fascinating, and educational children's book that has lovely illustrations and an interactive story. 
Kids can learn some basic coding from a pirate. It's easy to follow, and shows kids how to do 
things like choose a fruit in step-by-step instructions. Kids who enjoy learning new things, and kids who are intrigued by data and/or STEM related things will find this book neat and unique.
I gave it to my niece, who is nine and likes coding, to enjoy and have fun with after I finished it.
5 stars from me!
