LoveReading View on The Usborne Chess Book

For those brand new to the game of chess this useful book will provide all the information needed to get them playing. For those who’ve already started playing chess it will test their understanding and help to improve their skills.  Each page relates to a different piece or move and features an activity to reinforce what’s just been learned: readers are encouraged to write answers in or mark out moves using sheets of stickers provided. There are colourful boxes with helpful tips and reminders throughout and friendly illustrations of knights, kings, queens etc. to brighten up the pages and provide touches of humour. An excellent introduction to the game for readers of all ages. ~ Andrea Reece
