Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader
6.5 / 7.0

Oh, Olivia. It’s incredible how much personality the author manages to pack into this little pig. The book is silly, fun, and imaginative enough to appeal to toddlers and young children, and clever enough to appeal to adult reading partners too! At our house, we love the whole Olivia series, but this book is the original, and in my opinion, the best one.

5.25 / 7.0

This is a cute story about what a little pig might do each day. Visiting the beach, the museum, reading books and avoiding naps and bedtime. I like seeing what kids want to do throughout the day with their imagination and ideas.
