Book Review
This book opens with an introduction to the game, follows up with instruction on advanced play, and ends with valuable information for those preparing for tournament-level competition. But there's far more to this tome than the how-to material. It's also a reference manual with such valuable information as a list of crucial but uncommon two-letter words (do you know what a "Li" is?) and a number of words that require a Q but no U. Exercise puzzles are included so you can practice what you learn. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Booklist
Gr. 4-8. International Master Basman puts 20 years of experience teaching children how to play chess into this systematic, succinct, and thorough book. Dedicating each page to a different topic, he guides readers through the rudiments of the game, from explaining the pieces and setting up the board to special moves, essential techniques, and attack and defense strategies that players must know to win. Especially interesting for readers entirely new to the game are anecdotes in the "Check it out" section, which explain the origins of chess and how the game has figured in literature, language, and even history. A solid introduction for novices and good for skilled players wanting to develop their strategies and find out about chess clubs and tournaments. Roger Leslie

Board book
·
 
Book Review
Nina Laden's illustrations in this simple, rhyming board book are truly magical. The format is straightforward: on alternating two-page spreads, the words "Peek a" are repeated, opposite an illustrated page with a die-cut hole, behind which lurks a cow ("MOO!"), a green ghost ("BOO!"), and a mirror (you guessed it, "YOU!"). The youngest readers will delight in trying to guess who--or what--is peeking through the window, and can easily grip the baby-fist-size holes to turn the pages for the answers. The picture of the "ZOO!" is fabulous. Through the hole, all that can be seen is a wild pattern of colors, stripes, and spots. Turn the page, and find a wild kingdom of animals, one in front of the other: peacock, zebra, penguin, cheetah, elephant, and more. Ready for more peekaboo fun? Try Nina Laden's Ready, Set, Go! .

Book Review
Jean Marzollo and Walter Wick team up yet again for another perfect little I Spy picture book. In this one, kids who are just learning to read can practice their ABC's with Wick's special photo illustrations and Marzollo's clever alphabetical rhymes: "I spy an L wearing lacy white, and a metal M that's screwed on tight." Borrowing from some of their previous books (I Spy, I Spy School Days, and others), the author-illustrator team adds an original twist to the usual alphabet book, with each letter covered in its own letter-inspired design. P is plaid, E is a pink eraser, V is veiled with vines. Surrounding each letter are pictures of objects beginning with that letter (octopus, orange, ostrich). Young children will enjoy identifying the crisp, detailed pictures and reciting the bouncy rhymes. (Ages 2 to 5)...

From Publishers Weekly
For many people, the properties on a Monopoly board seem as fake as Monopoly money. Kennedy (Atlantic City: 125 Years of Ocean Madness) and Waltzer dispel that notion by revealing the lively history behind their real-life counterparts in Atlantic City and exposing the early origins of the game. Two opening chapters cover the history of the game and of the city while the remainder of the book examines each set of properties in turn—from their statistical value to how well their role in the game corresponds with the character of the streets on which they are based. Readers will be surprised to learn that Elizabeth J. Magie, a Quaker, created the original version of the game in 1904 (called "The Landlord’s Game") and that it reflected her economic views, as its goal was to keep players out of the poor...
