Chess Puzzles

My eight year old daughter Karina is learning chess and we have gotten into the habit of solving a few mate-in-one puzzles from Laszlo Polgar's book Chess - 5334 Problems, Combinations, and Games every night after homework. She is really enjoying it, especially when we are using an electronic DGT board coupled to Chessbase Fritz . Each time she solves a puzzle, Fritz rewards her by saying "checkmate" with a German accent.
