Why The Board Came to Be?

Written By L.M. Sparks
Have you ever wondered how the world came to be? Children’s author, L.M. Sparks has come up with a version that may seem a little different from the stories you’ve heard so far! The story deals with how the sun and the moon had fallen out on opposite sides of their planet and ignored that each side was dying until the sun decides to try and bridge the gap to harness some of the moon’s cooling power to save the heated sun’s side. Will they work together to create a more harmonious planet? What might happen if they choose to work together?
“Why The Board Came to Be” is a mystical story of a different time, but it still manages to teach children about working together and what can be achieved when two heads come together, as opposed to one. It’s also a rather sweet telling of how the game of chess came to be!
