By now, we all know Pip and Posy. Axel Scheffler has written some of the best books for 4 years or 5 years old. This book is a story on the beach.
This time, Pip and Posy put on their hats and swimsuits, and off they go for the nearest beach.
Pip and Posy, play, dig in the sand and enjoy the sea. They both remind me of my kids at the age of 3-4. At some point and when Posy gets a nap, Pip founds a new friend, Zac. Oh, and then Posy wakes up from all the noise, and now she is jealous.
Probably you now think, “ok, I know how this ends.” I have heard numerous times my kids complaining that they two “new friends” do not play with me. This is a common occurrence at that young age.
So back to the book. Posy feels lonely, with no one to play.
Until Zac drops the ice cream from his hands, and Posy gives him money to get a new one. The kids now become friends and play together, building an enormous sandcastle.
Should I read the book for my kid?
The book, as expected, has vivid pictures of the sand and sea. It is a well-written book with the necessary elements to make a young kid interested and curious.
Schefler touches the concept of friendship and jealousy and how we can feel better even when it does not look like to be the case.
The book is a delightful read for your summer read on the beach or just before a summer nap.
