It is widely accepted that learning chess has a very positive effect on children. Many parents want to help their children to study chess, but don't know how to do it. This book is the solution. It is a practical handbook that teaches the mysteries of chess with a light touch. All rules and aspects of the game are covered. This book will help children progress from absolute beginners to playing in tournaments.

The book contains a simple but effective training program that includes topics such as openings, tactics, simple mates, the endgame, and many more. Many tests are included, with clearly explained solutions, to ensure that the reader has understood the lesson. In addition to the instructional material, the section Preparing for your first tournament contains a wealth of practical advice.

Heinz Brunthaler's background is as a businessman. For the last twenty years he has been involved in many aspects of chess, including organising more than a hundred international tournaments. Now he focuses on writing chess books, especially those designed to help novices.

Die Veröffentlichungen des jungen schwedischen Verlages Quality Chess waren bisher durchweg sehr überzeugend, und so ist es sehr er­freulich, dass nun auch zwei deutsche Autoren ihre neuen Bücher in diesem Verlag herausbringen konnten. Wir beginnen mit "Chess for Kids and Parents" von Heinz Brunthaler.

Wie der Name schon andeutet wen­det sich dieses Übungsbuch gleichermaßen an Kinder, die in die bunte Welt des Schachspiels eintau­chen wollen, als auch an deren Eltern, die ihr Kind dabei unterstützen wol­len, aber vielleicht selbst noch keine Erfahrung mit dem königlichen Spiel haben.

Einzige Voraussetzung des Buches ist die Beherrschung der Schachre­geln, die im Anhang zur Sicherheit aber auch noch einmal kurz zusam-mengefasst werden.

Nach einleitenden Tipps zur Arbeit mit dem Buch und zur allgemeinen Gestaltung des Schachtrainings folgt das Unterrichtsmaterial, das zahlrei­che Themen, Übungsbeispiele und nützliche Hinweise enthält.

Mit diesem Buch kann eine sehr gute Grundlage für eine weitere Beschäftigung mit dem Schachspiel geschaffen werden.

Grundlegende Englischkenntnisse sollten zur Bewältigung des Buches ausreichen.
