Pip and Posy are best friends – they love to play, and make things, and have fun. But just occasionally they get cross or sad, and sometimes things go wrong that are beyond their control. And that’s when kindness and understanding – and a cuddle – make everything better.
Follow their highs and lows through a collection of different stories aimed at toddlers and pre-schoolers. As well as a much-loved TV series on Milkshake, Channel 5 (currently showing on weekdays at 7.45 am). Each story and TV series episode offers a gentle lesson for little ones to learn, whether it is about sharing, friendship or the importance of being kind.
Pip and Posy Books
If your children have discovered the new TV series of Pip and Posy and would like to take the fun and adventures off-screen and into the reading time you are in luck. With a collection of Pip and Posy books written by Camilla Reid and Axel Scheffler.
The idea for these books came about when my daughter was at a similar age as Pip and Posy. They are meant to reflect the emotional drama of the everyday life of toddlers – the ups and the downs, and an up (of course!) at the end. All the stories follow a similar pattern with an’ OH DEAR’ and a ‘HURRAY’ moment. I had some help from my daughter doing the drawings that are supposed to be by Pip and Posy – she also once pointed out that I had forgotten to give Posy a tail on one of the drawings in “A Snowy Day”.Axel Scheffler

But just as Pip is carrying the magnificent birthday cake to the table, he trips over the bus and flies into the air – along with Posy’s cake!
