    Olivia is a piglet, albeit a very talented and precocious one. Her clothing & accessories are red and she dreams of being a famous Diva one day.

    "This is Olivia. She is good at lots of things (see her singing '40 very Loud Songs). She is Very good at wearing people out (see her banging a hammer, jumping, running, playing ball). She even wears herself out (see her passed out flat on her back)."

    This is a simple and fun book to read, alone or to your young children.

    This was cute and charming but overall left me a little cold. However, I could see my nieces enjoying this one.

    Genre: fictionI would:- read this book aloud to my students during the first day or week of school to get them thinking about what they are like.- use this book to teach students about character.Review: Olivia is a good example of a fiction book because the character of Olivia seems believable and the art illustrates the story well.

    This an adorable fantasy/realistic fiction story. Although the main character is a pig, hence fantasy, everything her and her family does is very relatable to what students may experience in their day-to-day lives. There are simple events of sibling interactions, imagining/day dreaming, reading before bed, and creating art that you saw at a museum. Olivia's life is very relatable even if she is just a pig.

    This darling little pig named Olivia loves to hear stories and wears her mother out but her mother still loves her! Tells of the love of a parent and would be a great bedtime story or good for students with ADHD!

    Olivia is a normal girl (well, a pig, but a girl nonetheless) - her little brother annoys her, she is never sleepy around bedtime, and she wears her mother out. Olivia loves to play dress-up and make sandcastles (that are epic) but she does not get Jackson Pollack. This is a fun story to read to young children and the illustrations are adorable, too!

    Read this to my son who adores pigs. The illustrations are great and the dialouge is easy for any kid especially early readers.

    This is a great book to read for all ages. It even incorporates real works of art into it. It is great to read to students because they can relate to many of the situations. It shows how children often think they are right and know what is best for them. It can teach children that is not always the case. Really cute book and the illustrations are brilliantly done!

    "Olivia" is a story about a pig who can do anything if she believes she can.

    I love Olivia! This book is so sweet and obviously I really like it. I like it because of how it is written. It is written from Olivia's point of view (a young girl), and it is written in many run-on sentences. These run-ons are reiterated by several small illustrations on each page, which therefore supports the short attention span of a young child and reflects the first person point of view. I also like this book because the author chose a pig instead of a person. This helps to make the story relative to any child reading it, of any race or cultural background. The main idea of this story is imaginative play and that you can do anything.

    Olivia by Ian Falconer is about a girl pig who goes about her everyday life and does everything that she sets her mind to. This story has run-on sentences and is written from Olivia's point of view so it is relatable to children. This book also has great pictures. This story can be relatable to any student and can teach students that they can do anything that they put their mind to.

    This is a cute story filled with run on sentences that make the book fun. It's about a little pig girl in her everyday life and what happens. She is very determined and loves art and dance.

    Olivia is a book about a pig with a lot of energy. It is about her day and how she wears other people out and also herself. I love how it explains Olivia's personality and despite all the things she does, her mom says "I love you anyway." This book would be great for students to connect to their daily routine and how it compares or contrasts to Olivia's. Also, it could be fun for students to draw themselves throughout the day just as Olivia is drawn in this book and then make connections.

    Genre: FantasyGenre Critique: This book is an excellent example of fantasy as it uses talking animals, unbelievable characters, but a pretty believable story line. Review/Critique: This book is really cute and had me laughing throughout. It definitely reminded me of my little cousin Olivia. :) It was a really cute book and I would love to use it in a classroom someday.Media: Charcoal and gouache

    Olivia Olivia is the story of a little girl piggy, who lives the life of just about any 3-6 year old child. "She is very good at wearing people out." and also consequently wearing herself out. Olivia has a little brother and cat, she plays with them and annoys them. Olivia also does normal things like get herself around in the morning, take naps, and get dressed. She has gone to the beach and learned to make sand castles, she even goes to look at art at the museum. Eventually Olivia gets herself into a bit of trouble, but all is well, mom still reads her a story at bedtime. This book is a neat little modern fantasy that affirms the realities of everyday life for a VERY busy and active child. Its chock full of humor and the pictures are given the Caldecott honor; they are bright and fun to look at. The reading is easy and very light, something nice for the interest level of around 3-6 years of age. Some of the problems with the book are that it is very "Girls oriented", the book is also as a television cartoon, which may be noted as a distraction from the story for some readers, in this particular case I think the fact is neutral.Extension activities for the classroom can include talking about what we do sequentially each day and how we make our schedules/ agendas for the day. Each child could write out a schedule for what they really do on a Saturday and one for what they would LIKE to do on Saturday. As children get older the schedules become more complex.

    I can definitely see why this is so popular. A little bit like Eloise, but more accessible to modern children.

    Reread in March 2013 (originally late 2010). I don't so much see the resemblance to Eloise this time. Nor did I particularly enjoy it, so I'm taking one star off. Now I'll go see what the fine folks in the Children's Books group have to say about it.

    Olivia is story about a fun loving pig and her family. The book goes through Olivia's daily routines and adventures. Olivia always wears everyone, including herself. I love this book because it is fun and the pictures are eye-catching. Everything is black and white and there are pops of red. I think all children would enjoy this book because of its fun nature and I think most children can relate to Olivia.

    Olivia is a pig. She has a brother, mother, father,a dog, and a car. Olivia is the story of how exhausting, charming, demanding, curious, innovative, intelligent imaginative, independent a child between the ages of three to five can be. She does not like nap time. Give it forty years, she will change her mind.

    I thought this book was cute but nothing ALL that impressive. Although the characters are all pigs, their actual characteristics are believable for the role they have in the family. The daughter, Olivia, ALWAYS wants to be doing something. Olivia thinks her younger brother is always annoying her- this is common in typical human families. For example, page 5 and 6 represented this 'typical' dynamic between siblings. I also believe that the illustrations were cute. Because I believe this would be a book targeted towards K-2nd grade students. There could have been more colors other than just red, black and white because of the targeted age group! I believe the all around take away of the book was no matter how crazy you make your loved ones, they still will love you - or at least that is the hope! A child and their parent or guardians relationship is nothing to be taken advantage of!

    Meet Olivia, your All-American pig. She is rambunctious, curious and just plain cute! Youngsters will relate to Olivia's desire to stay awake as well as some of her daily routines. We see Olivia at home, on the beach and in a museum. Simple black and white pictures accompany the text, with splashes of red that highlight little Miss Olivia. The museum scene offers parents and teachers a great way to introduce a first time museum experience. The book ends with a read aloud bedtime story, and therefore lends itself wonderfully to the real world task of settling your little one in for the night, This book is sure to become many children's favorite, and is therefore recommended for all kids under the age of 7.

    A fantastic book about a liitle girl pig, Olivia, who sees the world as one big stage for her adventures! Other characters include a little brother who follows her around, a Mom and Dad who are flustered and amused by her high energy, and let's not forget her cat Edwin who Olivia "moves" as part of her daily routine.

    Illustrations are fun, I particularly appreciated the black/white/red color scheme. Highly recommended to 4-6 year-old girls. Olivia is a lovable character.

    Typical day of an active child who happens to be pig.

    From a kid's point of view, Olivia is a kindred spirit - energy and curiosity to boot. Well drawn and written by Falconer.From a parent's point of view, Olivia is also a lot of fun. Who couldn't relate to the trials of Olivia's mother as she loves and cares for her piglet?And as for the cultural asides (New York cosmopolitan, as one reviewer here termed it), these are great. Adults, of course, will appreciate them. They also form the cultural backdrop that widens the horizons of kids - essential fare. Of course, few children (and perhaps not heaps of adults) will get all the cultural refs and debates packed into a reference to Jackson Pollock and Olivia's attempt to imitate him. But these references bubble away in a child's awareness to develop into a familiarity with the wider world and its culture. Falconer is not heavy-handed in the way he does it, but the book is an education as well as entertainment.

    This is a fantasy book. It follows the actions of Olivia, a mischievous little pig who gets into all sorts of trouble. There are not many words on each page, making it a relatively simple book that I could use in a 1st grade classroom.

    This book isn't very long but it tells about a little pig named, Olivia. I liked this book so much I brought it to work with me to read it to my 3 year old class at the daycare I work at. They all loved the book too. The main character is about the same age as they are and they loved that they "do those things too!" The pictures were adorable and gave plenty of room for discussion between my class and I. I understand why it got the Caldecott Honor Book Award!

    I loved it! Olivia is such a sweet character. I appreciated the author's humor and got a real kick out of her visit to the art museum and how she went home and also tried to paint on her mom's walls just like the art she saw in the museum. I could potentially read this book to my kindergarteners.

    Precious book about little Olivia who is always into some kind of trouble. The day is spent with her as she is put into time out for misbehaving, refusing to nap, and argues with her little brother Ian. In the end, Olivia's mother puts her to bed and kisses her soflty and lets her know that she will always love her- no matter what.
  • (5/5)
    Olivia is about a young girl pig who loves to do many things. The book is easy to read aloud, and the simple language will make it easy for young readers to relate to. In addition, Olivia's hobbies, from playing dress up, to looking at art, to building sandcastles is sure to capture the imagination and create relationships with readers who have similar hobbies or aspirations. Her successes and missteps are also universal experiences for children (trying to emulate Jackson Pollock on the bedroom walls, for example). The illustrations, which won the book a Caldecott Honor, are in black and white, with small touches or great splashes or red to carry your eyes through the book. The book could do with a little more narrative. I would highly recommend this book for the children's section of a public library.

    Some people don't care for Olivia, but I love her. She is so unique, stubborn and independent like almost every 4-5 year old I know! I love that she loves opera!
