To the Houston Public Library People,
I am writing this letter in recognition of my appreciation, comments, and opinion about the Kodu Game Lab. First off I wanted to thank you for taking an hour and a half every Wednesday for the past four weeks to teach us how to program. I hope one day you guys can return and show us more interesting and educational items. Me and my classmates had a blast, programming the bots may be difficult but it was fun.
