This has been among our favorite books for years, over two children and dozens (maybe hundreds) of readings. We just assumed it was some sort of well known classic. Yet there are only two reviews here as of Jan 2012, and the book seems unrecognized and a bit obscure. Well it should be a classic! Each sentence is highly crafted: there is nothing extra nothing left out. The story is sweet and real and accessible, and a great launching off point for discussions with a child about getting lost, getting scared, and what to do.

We first found this book at the library and decided it was too good to not have at the house, so we bought it! Very cute characters and beautiful illustrations, a must-have for a young reader's library.

Adorable story teaches children about courage and finding their own way while instilling knowledge of the safety, reliability, and love of family. Wonderful illustrations and a sweet sweet story. This is our very favorite book!

This book is wonderful. The illustrations are neat, the kids like to roar along with Oliver, and it's a great lesson. Get it - it's a great book.

After reading 'Oliver finds his way' my children practice calling us loudly if they can't find us. They practice calling us by our first names when we're in public, (because everyone is Mom or Daddy) but at home they sometimes actually ROAR. This book is so wonderful it can bring a tear to your eye. And what a lesson to teach children: crying won't help, you must roar!
