Our Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Having a young daughter, has really opened up my world to tons of great books from Nosy Crow. They release some of the best books for kids birth to pre-school. The “Pip and Posy” series is a fun series. “The Super Scooter” is my first exposure to this series and I Aam sure not the last.

My daughter really enjoyed this and kept yelling out “Hop Hop!” at the turn of every page. The official premise of this installment focuses on Pip playing happily with his scooter in the park when Posy comes along and decides that she wants to have a turn. But she doesn’t know how to ride a scooter, and Pip has to come to the rescue.

The story is sweet and has a good message. I am not sure my 16 month told would get it yet but overtime she will and be able to take away a lot from this story. The illustrations are nice, I am not 100% in love with them but they are cute, especially the bunnies. No question overall, they will be sure to entertain the kids that are reading them and keep their interests.
