Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Olivia, a sweet pig, wants to become a wonderful ballerina. Her teacher tells the class that in order to become a great ballerina, they must eat, sleep, and dream ballet. Olivia decides to follow that advice. When she takes her brother, William, out for a walk, she stops to practice some of her ballet steps. Because she took so long, she misses her playdate with her friend Francine. At dinner, she wants everyone to speak French, and at school, she daydreams about ballet when the teacher reads a story. When she is playing soccer as the goalie, she misses every shot because she is practicing her ballet steps. At school the next day, she does not know about the story since she was not paying attention, so her teacher, Mrs. Hoggenmuller, talks to her after class. Mrs. Hoggenmuller tells her how she always wanted to be a teacher, but she did other things and did not think about it all the time. Olivia thinks Mrs. Hoggenmuller is right, so Olivia decides to just wear her ballet outfit all the time. This large book is printed on heavy pages, so it would withstand lots of wear and tear from young readers. It is primarily a book to be read aloud to children, and it would make a good bedtime story. The illustrations are large and colorful. The book is one of the "Olivia" series, this tale based on the television series. Children should enjoy this pleasant story. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
