Story Time Chess
Meet King Shakey, who's afraid of bees, trees, and even his own knees, which is why he moves so cautiously, one square at a time. Characters, stories, activities, and imagery help kids as young as 3 learn the moves, tactics, and language of chess. This delightful, creative approach to the game of kings has been used in schools and endorsed by chess masters and homeschooling parents alike.
Once they've worked through the basics, choose the expansion kit to level up your child's knowledge. This second storybook contains nine more strategy filled tales featuring new friends like the Cranky Princess and Casanova the Dragon. The level 2 box set includes the storybook, plus additional playing pieces and activity books.
The adventure continues with Mango the Giraffe, King Richard, and Beatrice Elephant in the level 3 expansion set. An all-new storybook, puzzle book, play pieces, and more help your child understand piece point values, pawn structure, board analysis, and decision making. Grown-ups need no prior chess experience to help kids learn with these materials, so it's fun for everyone.
