These books, while not written by the Ian Falconer himself, seem to be a spin off from the TV series, again based on the original Olivia. While I don't have the comparison with the original (we're not there yet), these books have really delightful full page pictures and the quality of the book, paper, binding is remarkable. My son enjoyed it.
PB 1. This book was enjoyable, but not the most amazing book ever. I imagine a child would really enjoy Olivia's pretend adventures, but it didn't have any really big ideas or overarching theme. I would definitely recommend this as a read aloud to some beginning readers. I think they would enjoy the fact that she is a pig and relate to her. However, I think if you are looking for a book with that has more of a "big picture" this would not be the book.
A cute book that focuses on the importance of imagination and pretend play. The story also involves crucial relationships that a child this age is likely to have experience with- the parent child bond as well as the sibling-sibling bond. It also introduces a lot of new words- for example, 'scuba dive'. The rhyme at the end of the story is very cute and teachers and students alike will have fun reciting it.
