Booklist Review

Gr. 4-8. International Master Basman puts 20 years of experience teaching children how to play chess into this systematic, succinct, and thorough book. Dedicating each page to a different topic, he guides readers through the rudiments of the game, from explaining the pieces and setting up the board to special moves, essential techniques, and attack and defense strategies that players must know to win. Especially interesting for readers entirely new to the game are anecdotes in the "Check it out" section, which explain the origins of chess and how the game has figured in literature, language, and even history. A solid introduction for novices and good for skilled players wanting to develop their strategies and find out about chess clubs and tournaments. --Roger Leslie
