Kipper’s Birthday by Mick Inkpen.
Kipper is a book about a Dog which faces the struggles that a child between the ages of 3-7 may face in everyday life. In this story Kipper faces the dilemma of throwing a birthday party, and has to overcome problems such as making his cake and sending out invitations. But after preparing everything for his party which is meant to be the next day, Kipper becomes tired and decides to post the invitations on the day of his birthday. So when no one arrives Kipper eats the cake to console himself whilst the day after he receives a surprise party because of his confusion over what the words yesterday and tomorrow meant. This book is written in a clever manner showing how easily children can be confused with the meaning of words and by portraying the situation it makes it easier for the children to understand. Using this book in Key stage 1 would be appropriate and depending how much the children understand it could be used to read in a group or individually on a one on one basis. It may be useful when the children are writing invitations to invite their parents to watch them in a play or a performance in the class.
