Bookbug Book of the Month: Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter

Pip and Posy: The Super Scooter by Axel Scheffler

ISBN: 9780857630797

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: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.

“Learning how to be a good friend is a tough lesson for us all, so it’s particularly hard for our little ones just learning to express their big emotions. This Pip and Posy story tackles the tricky problems of sharing, saying sorry and forgiving in a way we can all relate to. It’s a great story for talking about feelings and relationships and Axel Scheffler’s fun illustrations cement this as a firm favourite in my house.”
