What books or resources would you use to teach a kindergartner chess?

My question is twofold:
- What books, websites, or other resources do you recommend?
- Any tips for teaching a very young player?
He already knows all the basic moves and rules.

I’ve taught my six-year-old the rules and rudiments of chess, and we’d like to learn more. I have an older book called Teach Yourself Better Chess
that has several problems in it. He really digs the problems, they have lower stakes than a full game against Dad, and we can work through them together. I’m also not a solid player myself so I’m afraid I’m teaching him bad habits. None of his friends play chess (yet).
