Here's some basic information.

Most chess books for beginners explain that there are principles such as "controlling the center." But this book, by presenting a series of positions along with many questions and answers, is designed to help the reader make the discovery that ideas such as "controlling the center" should be principles.

In the October 2011 issue of Chess Life for Kids, this e-book received a positive mention from editor Glenn Petersen.

Here are some young readers' reactions to the draft version of the e-book.
