the super scooter - and other favourite modes of transport


We are featuring favourite books for toddlers this week as part of our celebrations for Bookstart week.
Bookstart is an organisation that supports and celebrates reading in children and this is their week for celebrating pre-school reads.
This week we are doing a special story time along this year's theme, which is 'All Aboard'. And we will be encouraging our younger visitors to take part in our transport treasure hunts all week.
Let us start by introducing you to Pip and Posy are two delightful new characters from the charming illustrator, Axel Scheffler (known for The Gruffalo and others with Julia Donaldson).
Pip and Posy are a rabbit and a mouse – two toddlers who play together, but sometimes things don’t go so well. In the super scooter there is a little bit of rivalry about a great new toy - and there is a good lesson about sharing. 
Also in the series is 'The Little Puddle' in which someone has a little accident, followed by lots of reassurance and hugs.
These are lovely brightly illustrated, not too much text for the target audience and a padded hardback format – surefire winners.Let's hope there will be more in this series.
