A worn pressure cooker and a sweet little pot learn new ways of dealing with difficult feelings

Meet the Potts. Holdin Pott grew up learning to keep in feelings of sadness and anger. He is one tough pressure cooker. Little Pott is watching and wants to be just like him, but when you’re little and the heat is on really high, it’s hard to keep the lid on and hold tough stories and feelings inside. What will Little Pott do? How will Holdin Pott help him?

From the team that created Once I Was Very Very Scared and You Weren’t With Me, comes a new story to help children and grown-ups start difficult conversations and snuggle in closer together.
