Beginner Books?

Hello - Does anyone have any go to/must reads for beginners to the Coding world? Maybe geared to how to get started, concepts, foundational pieces etc. I love the resources here to practice code but I’d also like to read along with what I am doing and understand how things work. Any recommendations would be very appreciated!

I have come across many programming books claiming to be for beginners but the ones I really found helpful & really beginner friendly are the Head First Book Series, like this one Head First HTML and CSS or Head First Programming which teachs programming foundamentals using Python
Head First HTML and CSS, 2nd Edition [Book] (
Head First Programming [Book] (

Thank you so much! There’s a lot of “beginner” books so I appreciate your recommendation. I will take a look

I liked the book Python Crash Course.

As you can tell by the title, it is oriented toward Python, but I’m of the opinion that it doesn’t really matter which language you start with.
