Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ollie, a gentle zebra who resembles a stuffed animal, shares his love for singing in his sixth outing. In rhymed couplets, Ollie explains, "I love to sing on my chair./ I love to sing on my stair. I love to sing in the rain and the sun, and with my brother, just for fun." Ollie's world in miniature is as cozy as ever in this sweet and simple story for bedtime. Available simultaneously: I Love to Dance. Ages 2�6. (June)
From the Publisher
"Ollie's world in miniature is as cozy as ever in this sweet and simple story for bedtime"—Publishers Weekly

"With plenty of repetition and sight words, Walker makes good use of rhyme. The colored-ink illustrations are set against ample white space and give the book an airy feel. The story lines are simple enough for toddlers to understand, and the books will also appeal to budding readers."—School Library Journal

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
Ollie is a striped stuffed animal who loves to sing wherever he is: in the rain, in the park, in the lemon tree, in his bath and in bed. From the library summary, I learned that he was a zebra, but who knew? He has a dog named Fred. The text is in large print in upper and lower case letters. The rhyme is reminiscent of the meter of Dr. Seuss. "I love to sing on my chair. I love to sing on my stair." The watercolor illustrations carry out the words. Notes float in the air to show singing. This little book of 12 pages is part of the "Ollie" series. Although this book may encourage little children to sing, I am sure there are better ways to do this. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
