JJsMom... My DS just started learning chess too! His teacher made the same sort of comments as yours. He loves it and recommended a book to us called "Chessersize" By Pandolfi.

It has pictures of boards that you set up, then it gives you a little blurb that says "white wins in 2 moves" It is your childs job to figure those moves out. At school they call them battle drills (maybe that's why DS loves them so much?) Anyway if your DS starts pushing to learn more,you might want to check out this book.

Maybe some day we'll hook up and the boys can play each other!
