Booktalk #1

Olivia has lots of energy.  She is especially good at wearing people out!  When she gets dressed, she has to try on everything.  She isn't happy with just one story -- she wants four!  Are you a little bit like Olivia?

Booktalk #2

Olivia, the pig, loves life.  She loves to sing, to dress-up, to go to the beach, to make sand castles, to dance and to paint.  This Caldecott Honor book is alive with Olivia's energy and imagination.  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
