Sure! HTML is a way for humans to give directions to computers about how to show text, images, and other content on the internet. It's a little bit like how a dog might understand certain commands, like "sit" or "stay." Just as a dog can understand and follow certain commands, computers can understand and follow certain HTML instructions to display content on a website. For example, an HTML instruction might tell a computer to show a picture of a bone, or to make a piece of text bold or italic. Does that make sense?
