Chess Is Child's Play - teaching techniques that work!

Apr 26, 2012, 2:48 AM |

A good friend of mine, Laura Sherman, has just had a chess book published.


Chess is Child's Play is designed to help 'parents / teachers / coaches / anyone ' to teach children about chess. It has lots of diagrams, fun mini-games, and practical tips to keep those young minds engaged.


I’ve almost 20 years in publishing, and I was impressed with the production quality of the book. Based upon their combined coaching and playing experience, Laura’s book is visually appealing, well written and jam packed with original, practical content.


Currently, Chess is Child’s Playis bouncing around in the Top 20 best-selling chess books on Amazon - amazing! Almost all of us share fond memories of being taught the game itself, and this is the true benefit of Laura’s book – the opportunity to create those memories with the next generation.


There is more information available about the book, and its authors - UK:, US: - and there’s also an adorable must-watch video ( If you do nothing else, just watch the video, share it with friends, and click on the Amazon like buttons!



In conclusion, this is not just another chess book for children, far from it! As an ex-USCF 2000 rated player, Laura (with her business partner, Bill) has created something innovative, something original and something special. After all, a book that helps anyone create wonderful chess memories with their children must be worth its weight in gold.
