[vcf-midatlantic] Looking for a kid friendly 6502 assembly language book

Here are some resources I use with my high school and college students:


I rather prefer Apple Roots over Assembly Lines for beginners, though. 
Apple Roots does get pretty intense after the first few chapters, 
though, especially when it gets into graphics and banked switch memory.

Both books are free, though, so I tend to start with Apple Roots and 
then transition to Assembly Lines.

Best wishes,

All my assembly books assume a lot and I figure 6502 is basic enough since he won’t have to worry about memory segments and stuff like that.
