Kids can learn to play chess in a fun, interactive way by using their fingertips to trace the grooves on each page.
This unique novelty book offers an engaging new way to introduce your kids to the fundamentals of chess! Babies can trace the paths that each of the six chess pieces take as they move along the chess board. Place your finger in each page's traceable ridges to follow a pawn advancing toward the opponent's king or a rook sliding vertically to capture the opponent's knight.
Perfect for hands-on learning, this book helps babies improve their fine motor skills as they explore the exciting world of chess. Adults are encouraged to help children trace each piece's path to reinforce the learning.
