Entertaining Chess Book for Children
"How to Play Chess Like An Animal" uses animal chess openings, complete with colorful images of animals playing chess, to teach chess. It is hard for a kid to sit down and play through the moves on a score sheet or in game in a chess book. But this book makes it irresistable. I just saw this point illustrated by a man who was head of a chess camp having a difficult time gettin his grandson to sit still and be serious about studying the game of chess. But five minutes with this book and he was playing through moves of The Lamb, and looking very serious about chess!
Here is the game he studied. Most of these games are short, and show a fun tactic, which kids love.
