What a brilliant series! Pip and Posy is a new series by Axel Scheffler who many know from his popular illustrations for The Gruffalo and it has quickly become a favorite of ours. Much like the Tilly and Friends series by Polly Dunbar, Pip & Posy find themselves in everyday situations that most toddlers & preschoolers find themselves in. The illustrations are adorable and Pip & Posy are two characters kiddos can't help but connect with.
With The Little Puddle it was instant love for Littlebug. We actually received a copy a few months ago and began reading it right around the time she began potty training. Now, this certainly isn't a "potty training" book, but it absolutely helped! It became particularly helpful after she reached the point where she was no longer relying on pull-ups to catch her accidents. Every so often she'd have an accident and had a tendency to really get upset about it, even seeing Pip have his accident made her sad at first. What was wonderful was how through her reading she learned that it was still important to keep trying to make it to the potty, but if she didn't it was something that happened to everyone and not to worry. Which to me was an invaluable lesson, and one that's helped both of us tremendously!
Pip and Posy and the Little Puddle by Axel Scheffler is a marvelous new story for kiddos that helps them understand that everyone has accidents.Read more ›
The book is well-illustrated, and the words on each page are big, the sentences simple. My son is able to "read" this book by looking at the pictures, and because the story is simple, he can even recite it. I'm very pleased with the Pip and Posey books; they are entertaining but also carry a lesson for little ones and big ones alike.
