This book introduced Max and I to chess. It describes the movements of each piece in a historic format that really does a smashing job of making the move memorable to the child. It introduces the child to some basic strategies--and it promotes a sense of fair play (and that winning is great, but losing is useful, too).
Do you have a favorite chess for kids book? Post it in replies and I'll put up a link here to your favorite, too :)
