Product Description:

Short? Check. Colorful? Check. Good for children? Check. With colorful illustrations and kid-friendly writing, this book will get your kids playing chess in no time. Covering the bare basics, you will learn how to move the pieces, the point system, some basic strategies, as well as special moves: castling, en passant, and so forth. Meanwhile, cool little knights and pawns decorate the sides of the pages, and occasionally illustrate a point (like the armored knight jumping over enemy pawns, while they gaze up with a mixture of fear and awe). These little things help kids take an interest, enabling them to learn faster. While not for those that already have basic knowledge, it will jumpstart a child's interest in chess. ~ Mark

Know nothing about chess? Do your kids want to know about chess but you really don't have time (or the knowledge) to teach them? Buy this book! Simple enough for your interested chess players to understand without you having to learn and master the game yourself first! Broken down SIMPLY enough and presented in a fun way that kids can pick up this complicated game quickly and have fun! This book contains the basics and some extra tips for anyone who's never played before or just needs some reminders
