Two Castles introduces toddlers to the magical world of chess

As a parent and chess enthusiast, I found myself in a unique spot. I wanted to share my love for chess with my daughter (Sofie), but let's be honest, explaining chess to a toddler isn't the easiest thing in the world. So, I made up a story that introduced her to the chess board in a fun and engaging way. And it worked like a charm In just a handful of times telling her the story, my daughter was able to set up the board on her own and we were off to actually learning the moves Happy to report that a year later, we were playing full games

After I saw how the story helped her get interested in the game and set the board up so quickly, I wanted to share it with you (my fellow chess loving parents) as a way to do the same with your little ones. I really hope you and your little one enjoy it
