Book Description Winning Chess Puzzles For Kids is the perfect introduction to basic chess tactics for children ages 7 to 13. Full of imaginative drawings, this fun and instructive workbook combines standard chess problems with a variety of insightful chess-related puzzles. The main part of the book consists of exercise sheets with more than 1000 positions, covering mates in one or two moves, and simple tactics such as forks, pins, and discovered checks. There are also over 100 pages of additional material with names like Lily's Puzzlers, Combo Mombo, Kiril's Kontest, Who's The Goof, and Switcheroos, as well as word searches and chess mazes. This book can be studied by itself or used as a supplement to the author's earlier works: Winning Chess Strategy For Kids and Winning Chess Exercises For Kids. Taken together, they make a complete course of instruction for the aspiring player.

My kids like the book. My 12 year old has about an 800 rating and thinks its a little too easy but he's not far into the book yet. My 8 year old - not rated - thinks its a challenge. Problem with the binding on the copy we received and many pages coming out.

Jeff Coakley writes the best scholastic chess teaching books ever. This book combines conventional mate in 1 and 2 with tactics and instructive original problems (who's the goof?, helpmates, switcheroos, etc). If you are teaching a chess club, you won't regret ordering this book and his others (esp Winning Chess Strategy for Kids).

My son teaches chess as part of his elementary school day care work at his Jiu-Jitsu studio. He was really excited to get this book. It is a great tool to enhance his program curriculum.
