Editorial Reviews

Review

Behavior modeling for the almost potty-trained... A cozy "playdate."
—Kirkus Reviews

Two animal pals navigate early childhood friendship with heart and humor... The gouache illustrations done in bright colors are as sweet and playful as the stories, and the endearing young creatures have humorously expressive faces. These tender and funny stories will entertain young children.
—School Library Journal

By Danielle M. Smith VINE VOICE on December 28, 2011
Format: Hardcover
In the day of the life of a toddler accidents are simply a fact of life. For Pip and Posy who love to play the day away the accident comes in the form of a little puddle. Fortunately Posy is a wonderful friend and helps Pip to clean up, get dressed and get back to playing. The next time Pip doesn't forget, but remembers and uses the potty.

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.

Pip and Posey prove to be good teachers in this very colorful book about little accidents. When Pip makes a puddle on the floor because he forgets to go to the bathroom due to some very serious play time, his friend Posey helps him see there's no shame in it - accidents happen, after all. This is a good lesson for toddlers and preschoolers who are in the process of being potty-trained and even those who are potty-trained but have the occasional nighttime accident.

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.

My 2.5 year old really likes it and I think it helps support the message that accidents are "ok" during potty training.
