Olivia Saves the Circus: 12/13/07
My in laws continue to be a wonderful source of sidesplitting funny children's books for Sean and Harriet. On their recent visit they brought up Olivia (for Sean) and Olivia Saves the Circus (for Harriet) by Ian Falconer.
Olivia Saves the Circus celebrates the power of a child's imagination. Olivia is suppose to share with her class what she and her family did over vacation. Rather than telling the boring details, she paints a fantastic picture where she is one pig circus.
If you believe Olivia's version she single handedly saved the circus when all the performers were out with ear infections. With that premise in mind, Olivia jumps into her story and takes us along.
