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 Super Scooter, Posy snatches Pip’s scooter and tries to ride it, but she falls off and hurts her knee. Though Pip was very cross, he comes running to help her. Posy says sorry, and Pip forgives her before they all build a sandcastle in the sandpit where it’s nice and soft.
Pip and Posy books are great for helping young children develop social and self-care skills as well as managing feelings.

“Another wonderful story in the world of Pip and Posy! … I love how applicable this series is to young kiddos, specifically toddlers & preschool age children. In both of the books we’ve read thus far the characters are in everyday situations that have been, in our experience, things happening in their lives right now.” – There’s a Book
“In Axel Scheffler’s sweet story, a rabbit named Pip is zipping through the park on his scooter when he meets his mouse friend, Posy, who wants to try Pip’s scooter. The distress we see on Pip’s face will resonate with any child who has ever been in his position: Your friend may really like your toy, but you really, really don’t want her to take it! […] The final scenes of reconciliation bring these stressful events to a gentle, age-appropriate conclusion.” – The Wall Street Journal
“The delightful Pip and Posy picture books deal with the dramas of toddler life. The two are best friends and have fun but sometimes, just like any other toddler, they get cross and sad.
