Teapot Trouble is another fun and well structured story from the Duck and Tiny Horse Adventures. This time, something strange has happened to Duck's teapot and a crab has moved in! As always, never fear! as Tiny Horse, being the greatest solver of all problems, is on hand to help solve the issue. Armed with a picnic, celery, a magnificent hat, a trampoline and peas he sets off to help friend duck get their teapot back. But with no success. Until... Tiny Horse tries to solve the problem with an entirely unsuitable alternative teapot. While Duck isn't amused, Tiny Horse's attempt at helping does eventually save the day.
This is a great, humorous tale about the unlikely friendship between Duck and Tiny Horse. It demonstrates kindness, creativity and perseverance as the friends battle their way through solving the problem. Children will quickly be on board with the tale and be able to develop their empathy skills towards Duck and Little Horse throughout the story.
Additional to the text, the book has beautifully detailed and bold illustrations to engage any reader or listener, and to add extra context to the story. This would be a brilliant resource to support early years children with their development around friendships and working collaboratively.
