There are a lot of books about chess, not surprising considering that chess is over 1500 years old. There are many chess books that would help a child’s chess game, here are a few:

5334 Problems, Combinations, and Games by Laszlo Polgar and Bruce Pandolfini- This is a great chess book that I recommend for players of all levels. This has sooooooo many chess problems in it for chess players of all different levels that you can keep it around for years, solving chess puzzles and going back to it again and again.

303 Tricky Chess Tactics by Fred Wilson and Bruce Alberston- This is a chess book that goes over chess tactics for all different levels. A challenging training tool, these tricky tactical chess problems are not only fun to solve, but great for beginners, intermediate, and expert players to use as tools to improve their chess game.  Chess Tactics are presented in order of difficulty, so that players can advance from simple to complex chess positions.  Examples from actual chess games illustrate a wide range of chess tactics from the classics right up to the current games.  You’ll learn to use pins, single and double forks, double attacks, skewers, discovered and double checks, multiple threat tactics-and other crushing tactics as part of their problem-solving chess challenges.
