Overview

Olive loves to sing wherever she goes or whatever she is doing…the problem is, she can’t sing very well. It is really annoying when her friends phone her and she sings instead of listening to what they have to say. You can imagine the surprise when they read she is going to be in a new musical in town. They were not aware she had been taking singing lessons. They lined the front row to comfort her when she is booed off the staged. They came prepared with cotton balls to stuff in their ears...but they don’t need them. Olive gets a standing ovation for her performance. Her friends are amazed and willingly go home with her to listen to her sing.
This is book eighteen of thirty-one books in the First Phonics series by Betty Ward Cain. It helps a student learn the short sound of an “O.” This program has been used in the classroom for many years with a lot of success in teaching kids to read.
