    Any suggestions? Look for something very basic starting with how to move the pieces for age 11.

    I was looking at those Robert Snyder books, but read that he is in jail for child molestation.

    Craig Pritchett's Chess For Rookies is a good starter.

    But the best from all accounts is Chess for Kids by Richard James.

    Snyder not only is a pervert, he isn't that great of a player.

    My favorite was Chernev's "An Invitation To Chess". However, I don't think it has been translated into algebraic.

    C.P has a good suggestion... I know both authors - nice people.

    I would also recommend Todd Bardwick's "Chess Workbook for Children"
    Here is his website. http://coloradomasterchess.com/

    Todd is a Chess Professional and very nice as well.
