    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.

    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!

    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!

    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

    This is the first book in the Olivia series by Ian Falconer. His attention to random details to help tell this story make the book so incredible to read. It is a good example of a classic "picture book" as the writing and the illustrating tell two related but different stories.
  • (4/5)
    The cute little pig, Olivia, is so heartwarming. Instead of just stating that Olivia "has to try on everything" (Falconer, 2000), there are seventeen individual pictures on the same page, all showing her trying on something different. Olivia lays out in the sun and instead of saying she got sunburned, it reads "when her mother sees that she's had enough, they go home." (Falconer, 2000) These words could imply that Olivia gets tired, or that she's ready to go home, but the picture explains it all, giving the words more depth. Seeing these pictures all by themselves, a reader could easily pick up on the story and understand it fully.

    Olivia is a charming and funny story, with great illustrations, and an even better main character. Olivia became a classic child's character the moment she was published. She is a clever and creative pig, whose imagination is unbounded. Her family is wonderful, too, with a deeply understanding mom, and a troublesome but also frequently troubled younger brother, Ian. (We actually don't learn much about her dad in this book.) They also have Perry the dog and Edwin the cat . The pictures are predominantly in black and white, and the only other color the author (and illustrator) uses is red, which stands out by contrast. Olivia's dress and other clothes are red, as are a few key features that draw our eyes, such as the ball on the beach or Olivia's illustrations on the wall. This, her debut book, introduces us to Olivia's - adorable - quirks. How she tries on everything she owns before settling on one outfit for the day. Her love of the beach, and how she must come prepared (the picture for that is hilarious). The fact that she is very good at wearing people out - even herself. Her little daily rituals, and the way her imagination transforms a sand castle into a might skyscraper, or a Degas painting into a personal ballet recital. Her interest in recreating fine art at home - perhaps by painting an imitation Pollock on the wall. I particularly like the way she bargains her mom into reading more than one book at bedtime.This is a book I love. The story and pictures are perfectly integrated, and the characters have an essential quality that makes children's stories great. They are unforgettable, have childish charm and imagination, and are original. Olivia is one of my favorite characters. She is a sassy and independent girl who is lovable and creative. She is so great! Also, the way Falconer writes is perfect for a picture book. The text is simple but evocative. You can feel a tongue-in-cheek humor riding in the lines, and he doesn't feel the need to explain everything in words, but has the pictures and the text interacting together to create a powerful effect. We own this as a board book, but I will have to buy it in picture book format, because the illustrations are worth it. I can't recommend this book enough; it's an example of how great a picture book can be.

    This story centers around the protagonist Olivia and the details of her life and daily routine. Olivia feels like a recognizable character, in the sense that everyone knows someone who is similar to her; somebody who can't help but wear you out. The story is very simple and reveals more about who Olivia is than anything else. This creates a great connection to the character of Olivia and children are more than able to connect with her on multiple levels.

    She is one hyperactive pig who is doing everything at one time. I'm discovering as a reader my mental pictures of a story are so detailed that it is hard for me to read a story with minimal drawings. Each page is very simple with a black, white, and sometimes red drawings. While all the havoc Olivia causes is a delight to read I found the pictures were to simple for me taste. At the same time I've read to children who get overwhelmed by complex drawings. These pictures are very clear and tell a story the children can follow even with out the words. In my opinion Olivia is beautifully written because she allows us to see a little of ourselves and the children around us. She is also a great example of a confident character.

    Ian Falconer's original story revealing a day in the life of Olivia, a young, spunky pig, who is good at a lot of things. She shares with the readers her outgoing personality, and her "give it a go" attitude. For Olivia, nothing is too challenging. I think this book delivers a positive message and is a good book to read to young students so that they can develop a strong self-esteem.

    This story is about a sweet pig Olivia who just likes to be herself. She is so full of life and brings fun to the black, white and splashes of red, illustrations. She has tons of energy and wears her mother out, who still tells her she loves her anyways. Many older siblings can relate to Olivia because he brother follows her and copies all she does. This books shows kids to be themselves and dream big dreams. It is a fun story that could be read during personal reading time or read aloud time.

    Very fun book to read at night time. The author even throws in a promo for reading to your children, and how it makes them become interested (at least that's what I thought). It was simple in nature, as it should be, but the art did justice to the story even in its simplicity. Probably why it was a Caldecott honor book. I laughed at the part when , in the process of counting, the story teller made fun of Olivia's little brother in that he copies everything she does, including putting on make-up. It's those sorts of things that make the reader not even realize that they are learning because the book is so much fun.

    Whether at home getting ready for the day, enjoying the beach, or at bedtime, Olivia is a feisty pig who has too much energy for her own good.
  • (4/5)
    The simple black-white-grey and red illustrations created by Ian Falconer in this book are wonderful. Definitely non-traditional, in relation to the average picture book, but very inspired. The inclusion of red in certain scenes draws the readers eye to specific points on the page. Olivia herself is quirky and fun, much like a regular preschooler or kindergarten student. Falconer's personification of a big into a child makes the story more whimsical and child like. The character is full of personality and her actions make each turn of the page exciting. I especially enjoy that he included actual images by Degas and Pollock - as there is a distinct gap in art education i the United States. I feel it is very important to expose children to paintings, and these two choices are classic and diverse.

    This book is about a pig Olivia showing her talent at many things. This book is good to show children that they can do many things and dream big. It is filled with simple art work and detailed art work.

    Little kids will be delighted to watch cute piglet Olivia go about her day, dressing in bright red clothes, go to the beach, got to the museum to discover ballet and painting. She's got lots of energy and wears her mother out, but during their bedtime story they exchange the words "I love you, anyway."

    I now understand what all the fuss is about Olivia books. Totally charming and very funny. I love the illustrations.

    Olivia is a little pig with boundless energy who likes to do lots of things that little girls like to do. This is a great book because little kids can relate to Olivia's seemingly endless energy and her many interests. The drawings in this book, although simple, are colorful and engaging.

    This book had alot of praise to it. However, I do not see what the hype is about. Cute book overall, however not the best childrens book in my opinion. It is about a pig who dances and plays around like a little girl.
  • (4/5)
    Olivia is a very outspoken, choosey and energetic little girl. And we definitely see all of that in this book. I really like the Olivia books because I feel that children can relate with her, or even try to be like her, her good side, hopefully. Olivia loves to go to museums, and loves to read and I think that children can learn that it is "cool" to do those things if Olivia does them- she serves as a role model. I think this book would be good for fun reading, but I wouldn't really teach a lesson to it.

    Olivia is a piglet with endless energy and imagination. She enjoys lots of things and it takes us on a journey of a day in her life that includes dressing up, singing, building sand castles, dancing, painting ( on walls), and her extreme dislike of naps! The art in this book is simple yet captivating done in only black, white, and red! Children can easily relate to the fun filled antics of this character as well as entertain adults. Personal Response: I have read this to my own daughter countless times and due to her love of art and building sand castles we have yet to grow tired of it! I love the energy of this book!Extension: 1) Teachers could ask children to draw their idea of a perfect day 2) Because the book shows real art from a museum it could be used to introduce them to famous pieces of art.

    Olivia exhibits a quirky personality and shows what a typical day in her life is like.
  • (5/5)
    The black, white, and red illustrations in this book are adorable, and Olivia inspires children to pursue their interests in the arts.
  • (4/5)
    An adorably illustrated text about a young, hyperactive, overachieving pig named Olivia and her dreams, talents, and dislikes. A favorite for girls in the PK-3 set.
  • (5/5)
    (easy) Olivia is a little pig full of dreams and mischief. One can help but love this sweet little pig who is very good at wearing everyone out! Follow Olivia on a typical day of adventure (and misadventures)! This book really didn't have much of a plot or conflict, but that is not to be expected from such a simple story. I gave it five stars merely because it is just so darned cute, and my kids loved it. The illustrations of Olivia in all her mischief is hard to resist.
  • (3/5)
    Olivia's parents can have a tough time keeping pace with her joie de vivre. Cute pictures but not much of a story.
