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

As a child, the travel map we used had a picture atlas on the exterior. I spent so much time pouring over that cover that I still remember, as a result, which states produce oil. Hereâ€™s an opportunity to provide that experience for your elementary children. The actual atlas is in the first 24 pages. The remaining pages are filled with over 350 stickers to place in the appropriate atlas location. Children can easily find the correct location by finding the â€œshadowedâ€ picture of the sticker. But itâ€™s not just pictures here! Each map has information and details regarding animals, culture and geographical locations in small, clear print. Maps include one of the world; Western and Eastern Europe; North and South Africa; Western and Eastern Asia; North and Central America; South America; Australasia and Oceania; the Antarctic and Antarctica. End the book with a brief world quiz to test your new knowledge. Once done, youâ€™ll have a picture atlas to continually use! Just wonderful! 9 3/8â€ x 12â€, 34 pp, sc. ~ Ruth
