Pip and Posy are typical toddlers: they are best friends and they have fun …but sometimes, just like any other toddler, they get cross and sad, so sometimes it takes friendship, sharing and understanding – and a cuddle – to make things better.

In Pip and Posy and the Little Puddle Pip comes to play at Posy’s house. They have such a lovely time after their mid-afternoon snack and drink that Pip forgets he needs to go to the loo, and soon there’s a little puddle on the floor. But everyone has accidents sometimes, so Posy mops it up, and lends him some clothes. The next time Pip needs a wee, he does it in the potty all by himself.

Pip and Posy books are great for helping young children develop social and self-care skills as well as managing feelings.
