Beginner Chess Tactics for Kids is a workbook that contains 99 one-move chess tactics puzzles (no checkmates) for kids with a playing level around 1000 or less.
The first chapter conatins 33 puzzles where the reader is asked to find the hanging piece in each puzzle. the puzzles cover all types of hanging pieces; from those that are unprotected and can just be captured, to those where the piece can be captured because the piece defending it is pinned and can't move as well as those where the number of attackers exceeds the number of defenders.
Chapter two contains 33 puzzles where the reader is asked to find the fork that attacks two pieces.
Chapter three contains 33 puzzles where the reader is asked to find the pin that creates a winning position.
Many chess puzzle books ask the player to solve all the puzzles from the perspective of the white pieces. But that's not realistic. In this book, the player will be asked to solve puzzles from the vantage point of the black pieces as well.
