Balancing screen time with real time can be difficult, especially when it comes to wildly popular, open-ended video games like Minecraft. Minecraft offers players an environment focused on exploration, imagination, and creation, but its nonlinear game structure can mean spending a lot of time in the game. Unofficial Minecraft Lab for Kids includes a variety of creative exercises that explore the game's aspects and uses them to teach fun, educational lessons. Players start the book by brushing up on some common Minecraft language and examining each of the four game modes: survival, creative, adventure, and spectator. Then they use this knowledge to venture off onto six different quests that encourage child and adult participation. These "gamified" labs allow young gamers to earn stickers and badges as rewards as they complete quests. They'll even learn how to screencast and narrate their own videos to share with family and friends! Unofficial Minecraft Lab for Kids provides fun, educational gaming goals that parents and children can reach together.
