And there are probably a few lessons in there for mum or dad as well.”

“It’s easy to become frustrated when things don’t turn out quite right, and this book is a great resource to help little people understand their feelings and how to deal with them. It also shows adults a positive way to respond to help their little person.”

'Hip Little One'
'I love this material and while I'm not a teacher it has massively helped with engagement with children. It has given me countless opportunities with students and opened up conversations about what is happening for them. This will be my fifth school as a school chaplain that I have used Loppy LAC. I'm so grateful.'
