The Beginner Chess Tactics for Kids workbook contains 99 one-move tactics puzzles (no checkmates) for kids with a playing level around 1000 or less.
The first chapter includes 33 puzzles in which the reader is asked to find the hanging piece in each puzzle. The puzzles cover all types of hanging pieces, from those that are unprotected and can just be captured to those where the piece can be captured because the piece defending it is pinned and can't move. It also contains those instances where the number of attackers exceeds the number of defenders.
Chapter two contains 33 puzzles in which the reader is asked to find the fork that attacks two pieces.
Chapter three contains 33 puzzles in which the reader is asked to find the pin that creates a winning position.
Many chess puzzle books ask the player to solve all the puzzles from the perspective of the white pieces, an unrealistic proposition. In Beginner Chess Tactics for Kids, the player will be asked to solve puzzles from the vantage point of the black pieces as well as the white pieces.
"I highly recommend Beginner Chess Tactics for Kids. It motivates young players to improve their board vision while they have fun coloring."
