Story Time Chess for the Holidays!



Hi Neighbors!!

Story Time Chess is a really neat gift idea for your children this year.  It is designed to teach young children how to play chess and it is recommended for ages 3 and up.  I really love the concept of this game.  We have 6 children, all grown now, but my husband taught each of them to play chess.  We ended up with two who love to play and beat their dad.  The others still play, they just are not quite as competitive at it.

Teaching Story Book


This set of Story Time Chess comes with an instruction book for parents, a storybook to read to the children, standard chess instructions, a double sided chessboard (standard chess side and story side), a set of custom chess pieces, 32 Character Cutouts, 30 Crown Tokens, a Crown Card game mat and 30 Crown Cards.

Chess pieces and Card Game


Story Time Chess teaches chess one piece at a time.  There is a story about each King and how he can move with a cute lesson to help your child remember.  Each piece has a story, so there are 8 chapters in all.  Work at your child's pace.  Some may catch on faster, while other may need more time.  You work on one piece at a time until your child understands how that piece can move.  Keep practicing with that piece, and add a new piece.  The Character Cutouts are to place on the pines to help your child recognize each piece.  They can be removed once your child understands the game and pieces.  The Crown Card Game is to play after your child has learned all of the pieces and how they move.  I can see how this method would really help a child learn to play chess.

Character Cutouts


A funny story here.  When one of my daughters was 5, she was visiting a friend who asked if she wanted to play checkers.  She quickly explained that she did not know how, but would love to play chess!!

Extra Game

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
