Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Soccer season is starting! Olivia wants the red uniform, but that is for the goalie and the coach has selected Francine for that position, so she is stuck with a green shirt. Olivia's mother explains that green is the team color, but Olivia decides to make her own uniform. She shows up on the soccer field wearing a blue shirt and shorts, only to find out that this is the other team's color! The coach decides Olivia can play anyway, but her confused teammates do not pass her the ball. The team loses, and Olivia and Francine trade blame for the game's outcome. The next day, Olivia appears on the field in her green shirt. However, Francine does not want to be goalie anymore. She and Olivia switch positions (and shirts). Olivia gets to wear her beloved red, and is a success as goalie. All's well that ends well—or should we say "smugly?" Olivia observes, rather unfortunately, that she "knew [she] would play better with the right shirt." Oh, Olivia! Fans of this porcine personality will be thrilled to find her on the soccer green.
