The Holdin Pott is a wonderful, thoughtful book to help explain to children – and possibly adults! – the problems that can arise when we try to ‘keep a lid’ on our feelings. Particularly in children, who are so much smaller, eventually there is too much inside the pot and the only outcome is to ‘blow the lid’. Beautifully illustrations and sensitive dialogue explore why it’s important to deal with our feelings and just how that can be done.
The books from Piplo Productions are designed to help families begin conversations about difficult experiences. The hope is that they speak both to children and to the child within all of us and that they promote greater understanding of how stress and trauma affect children and how grown-ups can partner to support them.
They are ideal books for parents and for all professionals who work with children.
