What people have to say about "Play Checkers with Me"

Play Checkers with Me is a simple book with easy to understand and illustrated directions and tips on how to play checkers. Also includes checkers do's and don'ts. A fun way for kids to learn checkers and also learn to find other ways to do something instead of getting angry.

Play Checkers with Me is a charming chidren’s book (Ages 3-7) about a six-year old dinosaur named Aaron, who likes to play checkers. When his mother and father are too busy to play with him, Aaron teaches his younger brother, four-year old Benjamin to play. Red and Black illustrations are used for the checker sets. While some of us cringe at the very mention of these colors, they are the sets that most children have in their toy chests.
The basic theme of the story concerns sibling harmony and is worth considering as a present to some child. The basic rules are colorfully and imaginatively described in terms that a child can undersand.

The text, while it provides step-by-step directions for playing checkers, is not didactic nor disjointed. The story line flows smoothly from beginning to end.
The multimedia illustrations are lively, bright, large, and childlike.

A cute book which teaches how to play checkers. Also points out that little siblings "can do it, too". I'd like it even better if it didn't talk so much about checkers until the "appendix" at the end.

I like the illustrations and the story line and the fact that readers canlearn realistic info about playing checkers. I think it will inspire kids to play.
I will certainly consider it for a future issue of Grandma's Book Letter.
