Would you like to read an Ollie story? YES!

From the very first line to the final page, Ollie's School Day begs to be read aloud— and together.

What will Ollie wear to school? A bathing suit? NO! A space suit? NO! A police officer's uniform? NO! Will Ollie wear pants, a shirt, socks and shoes? YES!

Call-and-response text in a simple pattern— three increasingly outlandish NO! options followed by a resounding YES!— model social skills and positive classroom behavior, pairing the subtle message with high-energy illustrations of Ollie's ridiculous rejected options. Readers will be quick to catch on and shout out the next answer— if they can stop laughing, that is.

Will kids love Ollie's School Day? YES!
