For the little ones
Everyone knows that chess, as a wise logical game, contributes to the mental development of a person. Using the book "Chess for the Little Ones", a parent can explain to the child what the strength of each piece is. The book is a fairy tale about how extraordinary people learn chess. Murzilka draws figures for them, which come to life and get acquainted with fairy-tale characters: Thumbelina, Nutcracker, Dunno, etc. A friendly conversation begins …
In the manual by I. G. Sukhin offers games, each of which has its own name. Children, taking out chess pieces from the bag, can call them by touch. You can suggest to the child that the figures enter the "chess house" by seniority. The child can build in one row first pawns, then knights, etc. You can play for a while, who will collect the same figures faster. Such a game is also interesting. All chess is on the table, and the child, looking at an adult who removes a piece, takes the exact same color or, at the request of the adult, a different color.
For younger students
The titles of the chapters in the book "Amazing Adventures in the Chess Land" are interesting. A younger schoolchild will certainly think about where the king can go, what is common between the flying carpet and chess, why the bishop figure does not look like an elephant, who are the opponents.

I. Sukhin became a dad, then a grandfather, and his favorite magazine "Murzilka" was always with him. He takes it with him on long trips.
One day he decided to get all the Murzilki out of his bookcases. I wonder what height you get if you put them on top of each other. Then I realized that one would have to do it for a long time. I called my wife Tatiana for help. Then daughters - Elena and Olga. The six-year-old granddaughter Katyusha also came running to help. Many, probably, will not believe that the mountain of magazines turned out to be under the ceiling! Then the granddaughter enthusiastically began to read the magazine aloud.
