I discovered Richard James's great website 5 years or so ago.

The book is designed or at least is suitable for young children and is a great way to get them aware of the chess boards and the pieces.
For the average young child it creates the game of chess as fun and not some dull intellectual game for adults. If they use it properly they will be able to play a game (and win as the title states) that will give them the ability (and hopefully interest) to further their game and become a reasonable good or even brilliant player. Many might not continue but at least they will have had the experiences of having fun with a chess set and play with a bit of insight.
An excellent start for any child who show a slight or more interest in that fascinating game of wooden board and men.
I highly recommend it for you young child (and it might even prove useful and interesting to many parents!)
