It is widely accepted that learning chess has a very positive effect on children. Many parents want to help their children to study chess, but dont know how to do it. This book offers a solution. It is a practical handbook that teaches the mysteries of chess with a light touch. All rules and aspects of the game are covered but the authors assume that the reader already knows the basic rules of the game (i.e. how the pieces move and capture and the concept of checkmate and check).
This book will help children progress from beginner level to playing in tournaments. It contains a simple but effective training programme that includes topics such as openings, tactics, simple checkmates, endgames and many more. Many tests are included, with clearly explained solutions, to ensure the reader has understood the lesson.
