Python is probably the best full-featured programming language to teach children. It can make a GUI (graphical user interface), process files, and incorporate sounds and animation.

Python is object oriented. However, using object oriented programming (OOP) techniques is optional. In Java, OOP is required. This makes Python programs much shorter. Python programs are typically 3 to 5 times shorter than Java programs. It is often 5 to 10 tmes shorter than C++ programs.

There are Python teaching materials that are oriented toward making games, which makes Python a good choice for teaching children.
