Olivia is a great way to make connections to children's life outside of school. Many watch the show Olivia so they may be happy to know there are books about the show. This book can be told during October when Halloween is coming up. This books also explains the roles that people at hotels do so one can ask the students questions about what a job is and they can explain what their parents do. I'm not sure if people have career day, but this would be a time where you can bring in parents to talk...more

This is a fun read aloud story that I would use for my students from pre-k through 2nd grade. In the story, Olivia and her friends are stuck inside after school because of a bad thunderstorm. For the younger audiences,I would take them on a picture walk through the book and have the class make some predictions on what they might think will happen in the story. For older audiences, I would read a few pages then stop and have a class discussion on what may happen next.

Olivia the pig has a sleepover at her house with her friends Francine and Julian. The weather is rainy and spooky--Olivia pretends that her home is a hotel, but can't seem to find a room for her brother, Ian.

Ian pretends to be a ghost and scares Olivia's guests. Then Ian agrees to be a room service waiter for the "hotel" and Mama makes them ghost shaped pancakes for breakfast.

Read in Austin from Logan's library.
Esther
Olivia opens up a fantastic hotel at her house, but her guests are starting to think it's haunted! Ian is the one spreading the news, and he ends up playing a trick in the attempts to prove her friends right.

-cute book, we used this in a mini lesson with 1st grade children; they related to Olivia and her guests by writing about what scares them about scary ghosts, and the fun things they could do with a friendly ghost.
Irina
This is a great story where some kids are stuck in the house because of a thunderstorm. Olivia decides to pretend that they are at a hotel that she owns, "Olivia's Hotel." When her brother isn't allowed to stay at the hotel, he pretends to be a ghost. This is a very fun story to read to kids and it could lead into a discussion about fiction/ nonfiction. (Also, it's a book that could be read during Halloween...)
Katherine Fountain
Olivia and her friends were playing "hotel" when they heard a creepy noise and decided it was haunted!! Her brother Ian was told all of the rooms were full when he tries to play so he plays tricks on Olivia and her friends. This story encourages imagination and creativity. The pictures are fun and there is a delicious surprise ending :). I think this story would be great for read aloud in grades k-2.
Brandy
This is a cute book that is easy to relate to for children who have siblings. It would make a good read-aloud because of its really great illustrations and it has just enough suspense to keep an entire classroom engaged throughout the whole story. This book also contains super clear elements of a story (characters, setting, problem, solution, etc) and would lead into a great lesson on that.
Teresa
This book shows the "typical" relationship between an older sister and a little brother. Olivia is running a pretend hotel for her friends during a rain storm. The friends are scared there are ghosts in the hotel so the little brother tries to scare them and be a pretend ghost. The book shows how Olivia can work things out to include her little brother so he is no longer bothering everyone.
Tiffany Young
Olivia and the Haunted House is a cute story about Olivia and her friends pretending that her house is a hotel. While they are using their imagination, her brother tells her friends that the hotel is haunted by ghosts. This story would be really good to use around Halloween. Could also be used to teach students about fiction and nonfiction.
Chloe Jackson
Olivia and the Haunted House is a cute story about Olivia and her friends pretending that her house is a hotel. While they are using their imagination, her brother tells her friends that he house is haunted by ghosts. I think that this story would be great to read to 1st grade children and lead to a discussion about fiction vs. non fiction.
Lucero Hernandez
Cute and funny. Olivia and her friends are stuck inside due to a thunderstorm. Olivia then decides that they should pretend that they are in a hotel. Her little brother, not being allowed to stay in the hotel, pretends to be a ghost. This book comes in handy for lessons on fiction/nonfiction (realism vs. fantasy), personification, etc.
Codie Gates
In this story, Olivia and her friends are stuck inside after school because of a bad thunderstorm. Olivia decides to pretend they are staying at a hotel, Olivia's Hotel! Her little brother wants to play, but when Olivia doesn't let him, he takes things into his own hands.
Katie Brown
This is such a cute book. Olivia decided to open a hotel in her house. She rents out rooms to her guests, aka her friends. Her brother is upset that he doesn't get a room so he decided to pretend to be a ghost. He sneaks up on her friends and scares them. It is very cute.

This book is a great place for a teacher to start when it is time to teach students how to use quotation marks. This text is full of direct quotes that can be easily identified. I would even use this book to help the students identify who the speaker is through the quotes.
Tuyet Tran
Olivia were busy hosting the guest at her hotel and she ignored her brother. A mysterious ghost appeared to haunted the hotel. Check out what happen to Olivia and her hotel! This book seemed to remind me of the phrase "in with the old, and out with the new."

One dark, rainy afternoon Olivia decides it would be fun to play "hotel" after school. But things take a spooky turn when a mysterious ghost seems to be hunting Hotel Olivia. This would be a great book for students in first-second grade.
Takeisha Hannor
A great book to teach about nonfiction to children. Olivia decides to pretend they are staying at a hotel, Olivia's Hotel! Her little brother wants to play, but when Olivia doesn't let him, he takes things into his own hands.
Kasmarine
Olivia is a wonderful host but her hotel is haunted. Some of her guests were scared and they didn't want to stay.
Olivia played the detective and solved the mystery. This book can be read for fun and/or instructing.

I confess to not really 'getting' the appeal of the Olivia books. Any of them. I'm especially suspicious of any book adapted from a television program or movie. This is no exception; read like a commercial.
Jessica Vu
This is a fun book for imaginative play-children (little pigs) pretending that their home is a hotel. It's also great for varied punctuation and finding adjectives.
The pigs are disversified.
Nanee Zogaa
Fun read about Olivia and her friends who come to stay in Olivia’s hotel. Good book to read to send a message or start a discussion about friendship and working together
Tam
Olivia books are hit-and-miss with our family and this one was a hit. My boys really liked it but I think they did because they love to pretend like our house is a hotel.
Robyn Davis
Great read for when discussing fiction vs nonfiction in the classroom. The children will most likely love this cute story! Also a fun read for Halloween season.
Kimberly Entrekin
book is great for portraying imaginitive play. this book has a ton of syllables!! great for helping to learn about this. also a great festive book for around haloween.
Carissa Worm
This is just a silly book about one of Olivias adventures. Kids would probably just like to listen to it and predict who the ghost is!
Angela Record
This book is neat to use around Halloween time. The story plot is better than some Olivia books, but still not my favorite.
Yadira
