Winning Checkers for Kids of All Ages
WINNING CHECKERS FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES is the ONLY available primer written for children on this subject. Well illustrated with cartoon characters & checkerboard graphics, WINNING CHECKERS FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES is a "straightforward" easily digested guide that explains the basic rules of the game & offers strategies for competitive play."--The Landmark Press, Holden, Massachusetts. Tactics that give the reader an edge are described & reinforced with clear annotated checkerboard illustrations. The player learns how to control the center of the board, protect the back row & spot enough double & triple opportunities to crown more than their fair share of Kings. Children can clip out a numbered checkerboard on the last page & use pennies & dimes as checkers pieces if they don't have their own game set. "With so many requests, the absence of any substantive material on this most popular of lifetime board games for children has always been frustrating. Well written & engagingly illustrated, WINNING CHECKERS FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES fills a definite void in a most enjoyable & easy to follow way - our kids love it."--Jane Dutton, Children's Librarian, Holden, Massachusetts.
