This delightful entry in a series of puzzle books about the exuberant puppy's daily life is specifically designed for toddlers. Brief sentences follow a simple Q&A format, which prompts readers to find the correct piece: "Kipper is getting ready for bed. Where is his favorite toy?" Toddlers readily identify with Kipper's bedtime ritual, which includes favorite childhood activities and objects.

Bright colors and clean lines dominate the uncomplicated drawings. The sturdy puzzle pieces are easy to handle, while the one-of-a-kind openings guarantee a perfect fit for the correct piece only. Of course, children young enough to put the pieces in their mouths should not handle them unsupervised. This is a cozy, interactive tale to help little ones make the transition to their own evening routines.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
