Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

As with the other titles in this series about Kipper, the simply drawn and brightly colored illustrations are ideal for toddlers. But KIPPER'S SNACKTIME presents more of a challenge for readers, requiring them to distinguish between hot and cold and crunchy and wobbly, extending its appeal to the preschool set. The problem is that it displays a veritable junk-food feast featuring ice cream, cake, and a hot dog. Out of the five snacks featured, only one is healthy fare.

Toddlers eagerly identified their favorite treats. An extension activity that added a bit more challenge to the simple format for older preschoolers was to name more than one food in each category -- attempting to list, for example, as many crunchy, cold, and hot foods as they could.

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.
