Olivia and the MIssing Toy

Here's another one that my son enjoys he's almost 2. He loves his Olivia books so much he call's Olivia "O". When it becomes bedtime he yells out "O". These books are so well written and we enjoy reading them together.

Like most Hollywood 3rd movies....'Olivia and the Missing Toy' doesn't quite measure up to the first two installments....the first one was so cute and clever....the second one was just as cute and surprisingly even more clever....but this third one comes across a bit contrived....the story is rather disjointed, jumping around from soccer attire to a missing toy....the one liners are nowhere near as humorous....and the ending is pretty much a letdown, lacking the climatic wit and irreverence of the first two....it's an OK book, but nothing like the first two Olivias....which is a bit of a disappointment considering how long we all had to wait for number 3?! :-(

    My 3-year-old memorized this book cover to cover!!

    The original Olivia book quickly became my little girl's favorite. After borrowing Olivia and the Missing Toy from the library, she memorized this book front to back, word-for-word. Of course, she cannot read yet, but the pictures and simple text were alluring enough for her to memorize. We then had to purchase this book to add to her collection. Highly recommended, this book is a charming and fun read.

    Still a Delight!

    If you are a die hard Olivia lover, you will love the continuing drama of Olivia. I read a few negative reviews prior to purchasing the book, and was prepared to not like it. My daughter and I read it and I was overjoyed that our wonderful, dramatic, resourceful, independent, and funny pig was just as enjoyable. The difference...Olivia is now aging from a toddler to a little girl. Is she indulged..of course. Was she indulged in the first two books..YES. So, if you adore Olivia you will see that her spirit continues to enchant in this book.! I love this Pig!
