A fantastic collection all-in-one book of the fabulous works of Mick Inkpen. I have recently purchased this for my daughter for her 5th birthday. She often gets books from the library and we have fell upon quite a few of the kipper books. These I find, are easy for her to understand and with big lettering throughout, it is contributing to her understanding of words. She also picks out words herself that she recognises. His books tend to be the one's that I will sit and go through and read one word at a time and they tally up with words from school, particularly as she is at Jolly Phonics stage. The use of the attached bookmark on a ribbon is very novel for her and thinks it's great that she can keep the place her next night's story! Also, use of flaps and pull out's make's more interest. I got into Mick Inkpen's talent from reading 'We are wearing out the naughty step', which is a favourite of both mine and my daughter's, mostly as it reminded me of real life and how it was wrote from an 'inside children's life' point of view. I realised that they was more to this guy than just the amazing Kipper!!! Fantastic present.
