All of these toys and activities will appeal to their natural sense of fun and wonder.

Learn how to play chess, the world’s most popular board game! It’s easy to learn, and anyone can play it. Jessica Prescott teaches you how you can get good at it and start winning. Improve your skills through 35 fun activities. This isn’t just a textbook about the rules of the game! Why not have a game of Pawn Football (pawns line up at their starting rank and race to the other side), or do the Queen Dance (make a checkmate using only a queen and king)? Try Scholar’s Mate: the four-move checkmate every beginner needs to know, and when you’re really good, play Bughouse, a crazy four-person game with two chess sets. All the activities have clear, colorful illustrations so you can see exactly where pieces should be on the chessboard. There are also helpful hints and tips throughout, and if you’ve ever forgotten how a piece moves or need to brush up on a rule, look at the Starting Out section for a reminder.

By Doug Stillinger

A Klutz classic gets bigger, better, and even crazier. In 1998, we published a book of cool things to build with LEGO bricks. Just like that, kids everywhere quit stacking bricks in blocks that don't move and instead began constructing new things that DO things. And today, nearly 750,000 books later, they're demanding more. LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions is a brand-new book of brand-new, high-performance projects. From the Supercharged Speedster to the Squeezeclaw Grabber to the Wall Rocket Racer - all these contraptions spin, stretch, speed, or otherwise spring into action. And all of them are totally buildable thanks to super-clear instructions and step-by-step diagrams. Wonderful as the original book was, this new version is even better, and here's why: In the earlier book, five of the ten projects required bricks that you (hopefully) had at home. In this new version, every single one of the 16 projects can be constructed using just the custom selection of LEGO bricks that come with the book. All you need to supply is a little time, a little energy, and definitely a little craziness.

A fresh spin on a drawing revolution! Back in the 20th century, kids used plastic gears to draw geometric designs. When the process worked, the results were beautiful. But, too often, sprockets didn't mesh, gears stuck, and drawings were crumpled in frustration.

At Klutz, they see this kind of kid frustration as a call to action. So they created The Spiral Draw Book. Gratifying stacks of letters, drawings, and sales figures showed how kids loved the meticulously designed gears and draw-right-on-'em pages. Now, 9 years later, this book has earned a fresh new spin!

The gears have been engineered (and tested, tested, and tested again) for maximum ease of use — they're even translucent, to eliminate the "where was I?" of other spiral systems. The frame's rubber feet grip the lay-flat book pages securely. Updated project ideas show how to create and combine the 65 different shapes into stunning spirals, while a pen with six different ink colors guarantees every one of them will be rainbow bright. And now, everything packs away into a neat new format with tons of workspace and storage — perfectly sized for a zillion and one spirals!
