Bought this for my 6 year old son after he found this book in the school library and had to return it to school. It is a wonderfully illustrated book with clear instructions that kept my 6 year old interested in learning the game. Very good condition, said Gillian.
   It is all a young learning player needs to dive into the beauty and fun of chess
I have taught chess to children from 4 to 11 years old. This is my go-to book for the younger players, that is, maybe 8 or 9 years old, because I think that is when they are really beginning to understand the game of baseball. It's all a young learning player needs to dive into the beauty and fun of chess, Raymond said. Clearly written and illustrated by Graham. Once one has mastered all the rules, he or she can enjoy chess for a lifetime. Or, if the young player wants to move on to scholastic tournaments, it will still have laid a good foundation for more advanced texts.
   This is a great book to teach my eight and nine year old
This is a great book to teach my 8 and 9 year old, and I am not going to lie, I'm learning too. We started reading it aloud to each other about a week ago, and my kids are already going off by themselves and playing chess with one another, and they downloaded a game to play in the car.
   Nice book for beginners
Games for little ones to learn the rules of the game and a couple of strategies and fun historical facts. My son enjoys reading it and the activities are also very educational. If you have any questions, I highly recommend this book.
   Teaches only extreme basics
It's just that I don't know how people rate it so high. 0 2622010 2622070 It's just that I don't know how people rate it so high. This book is for kids that want to learn but have nobody to help them. Basic concepts like forking and discovered attack are just one page of the book. Most of the book deals with how the game is played, including how pieces move and the objective of the game. In fact, I had already written every concept in the book to my kid when I got the book, Harper said.
   A Big Hit with the Grandkids!
My grandchildren wanted to play chess and I bought this book. It was a little chess tournament, but they learned so fast we had a kid. It was a blast, made for a fun day, and now they want to play more!
   Fun and colorful, but instruction is problematic and the book is almost certainly ghostwritten
This book features over 100 full-color illustrations of children and chessboards. Its instruction is more than twice the volume of some other introductory materials, and includes no reference to combinations or sacrifices. Narrow margins make it difficult to write personal notes. The puzzles are good, but the book is mostly a collection of short stories. It is White's turn to move, says the writer of the diagram. The writer of this article had intended to report on one of the missing links in the "Qxa8" series. Rx8 is the first and only game of chess to feature two masters of the game: Lord and Queen. Rx3 is a single-handed variation of the 3E8++ set of protocols.
   Definitely recommend
The content is very useful and comfortable for a 7 and 9-year-old to navigate, Mr. Dhaliwal said.
   Great book to start to teach kids who are absolute beginners..
Hi, I'm 6 years old and have a son. I started teaching chess in my own way. He was not getting the complete picture of chess. This book helped me to teach chess for my son and after the completion of this book, he got the concepts very clearly,.. For new teachers, it's a great tool to learn.
   A start
At age 72, I decided to try to learn chess again. The teachers were wonderful and all but high-ranking competitors, but I found chess to be essentially a passion and a compulsion. As a librarian with a master's degree, I've learned that when approaching a new subject, it's very helpful to start at a very simple level to get the feel for the subject. When an event came up, I sent this along with the portable chess set to my 'brainy' young grandson.
