…Not a piglet was stirring. Well, maybe just one.
Christmas is coming, and Olivia is incredibly busy. She has to wait for Santa, make sure Dad sets up the tree, watch Mom make the Christmas dinner, oversee the care with which the stockings are hung, and, of course, OPEN HER PRESENTS! Whew, being helpful during the holidays is exhausting!
Lovingly told and lavishly illustrated, this board book edition of Olivia Helps with Christmas is the perfect stuffing for any stocking.
This Christmas-themed Olivia book doesn’t disappoint! A fun story of Christmas that will have you laughing with lots of fun touches. I love the illustrations, simple and unique.
Olivia’s back–this time on Christmas Eve! While this isn’t my favorite book in the Olivia series, it is nonetheless fun and engaging. It makes a great addition to our collection of holiday books–and my three-year-old daughter asks to read it year-round.
I think if I was a fan of Olivia that might have saved this for me, but I thought the story ended up being just fine. It’s filled with all your classic Christmas preparations involving anxious (thankfully turned grateful!) kids, but this story left me wanting more, like it never quite got where it was going.
