The Kids' Book of Chess
In the Middle Ages the knight was the ultimate warrior. In his suit of armor, on his spirited horse, he could overcome any resistance-as in the eleventh century, when it took only seventy knights to conquer the entire civilized kingdom of Sicily! Today the movements of medieval warriors are preserved in the moves of pieces on a chessboard; and by going back to the life and times of the Middle Ages, Harvey Kidder is able to explain the game of chess in an uncommonly exciting way.

This is a good introduction to the game of Chess for my grandkids ages 7 and 8. They are learning a little bit of it in school so like to practice on us when they are here. Just wish it came in a box where it could all be kept together. Guess I can find one that will work. Read full review
Great starter setUser Review - Anonymous - Target
My 7 year old and 5 year old just started playing and this set is great because it shows on the board how each piece moves. The book is simple and gives a history of chess and sample strategies to the game. Great for the price too. Read full review
