Olivia is an absolute delight! A gorgeous little pig who likes to dress-up, sing songs, dance, think, snooze (sometimes) and is even quite good at building sandcastles.
Her days are filled with the wonderful minutia that makes up a small child's life and, at the end of them, when she snuggles up in bed and her mother reads her a story (or three) Olivia the little pig, feels very full of love.
Olivia is an absolute gem of a book - a modern classic.

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."

One of my favorites so far, but I've heard it rumored that this book appeals more to adults than children.

Great for grades 3-5. Olivia is a trouble-maker and uses her imagination for everything. This book was great with illustrations and teaching life lessons.
