366 Books in 366 Days: A Beach, a Book and a Baby

This week we have been on our summer hols, so of course I had to purchase the latest Pip and Posy book from Nosy Crow to take with us.

For those of you that have read some of our previous posts, you will know that we are big Pip and Posy fans. The new book “Pip and Posy: The New Friend”, is a great addition to the series. It is set at the seaside and introduces a new character, Zac.

Pip and Posy are happily playing together at the beach, collecting shells, digging in the sand and paddling in the sea. When Posy takes a nap, Pip makes a new friend, Zac. Pip really enjoys his new games with Zac, however, when Posy wakes up, she is feeling rather left out and doesn’t want to join in. As with all these gentle books there is an important lesson to be learned. This makes Axel Scheffler’s series perfect for little ones.

All three Mini Reviewers enjoyed the story, especially as it was so relevant to our traditional seaside holiday. I loved that Posy reminds Pip to wear his sun hat and is shown with her bottle of suncream. This even helped me persuade Theo to have his cream on!

The illustrations are colourful and the characters are very expressive. The story itself is simple and short (I actually quite like this), however there is so much to talk about on every page. This is certainly one for your summer reading pile. Poppy even enjoyed having a little read with me on the beach. She was also fascinated by the sand!




We'd love to know what's in your summer reading pile...

  1. Pip and Posy are huge favourites here and several of their actions had a positive impact on my daughter's behaviour when she was a toddler too!
