Interesting Logo Site: Elica

It's been a long while since I've looked at Logo. Somehow I ended up here. Logo is often considered only a toy language. But, while it doesn't have the expressiveness of it's closest cousins Scheme and Lisp, simplicity has it's place.

In primary/secondary education, Squeak Smalltalk seems to be taking away the Logo mindshare (at least it seems this way). Is this true?

Be sure to read Brian Harvey's Logo books

Here. All three are online. These are some of the best programming texts available, regardless of language.

I agree that Squeak is the new language for elementary education (in the U.S. at least), but beware: often "Squeak" is synonymous with "the pre-built e-toys that come with Squeak." They don't involve any Smalltalk proper.

Brian Harvey's Books

Yes, they are very good books. I like his informal writing style. Very approachable.
