Kipper’s Toybox by Mick Inkpen
Kipper’s Toybox (Kipper)
If you are looking for a great book to help with early counting then Kipper’s Toybox is a must.
Kipper is a cheeky little puppy who is concerned that somebody or something is nibbling a hole in his toybox and that his toys might not be safe. But, the trouble is, that every time he counts them he gets a different number. To make it easier to count he lines them up.
Then, one night, one of his toys appears to have come to life!
Colourful illustrations and a great story line makes this a fabulous book for all 3+ children.
It could also be used as the basis of a great counting activity at home. Use a box with 5 toys, count them as you put them in. Take one away, count them again and see if your child can spot which one is missing.
