Sure to be a perennial favourite
on 10 February 2007
This is the story of Kipper and his best friend Tiger as they amble through the months of a year taking pictures of the fun they have together. Each month they take a photo which has a flavour of the month in question so it is a good way for a child 2-5 to pick up the sequence of the year through snow, daffodils & tadpoles to blackberries, conkers and a beautiful misty moon in a cold November. After being snowballed by Kipper in February Tiger has to wait some time to take his turn. Its 1-1 at the end of December but my children are amused by the very last picture in the book where Kipper has a significantly larger snowball behind his back. This book is gently amusing and softly-paced - rather like Kipper's A-Z - perfectly pitched at preschoolers and reception level children. Obviously the book ends with December so it would be a lovely Christmas gift but it has an all-year-round applicability and definitely isn't a book you'd be packing away with your decorations. A hit in our house.
