Of course Olivia's not at all sleepy
This fun book highlights how young children's imaginations are filled with endless wonder.
RIP, Ian Falconer. 🤍💔🖤
Ian exposed corporate malfeasance; had an identity crisis; developed a more stark, modern style; and encouraged seriousness in tandem with play through the persona of Olivia the Pig.
This is a story about a pig named Olivia that is god at a lot of things. She goes to the beach with her mother and won‘t take a nap when she gets home. She goes to the museum and tries to recreate a painting on the wall, and does not want to go to sleep. Her mother tells Olivia that she wears her out but she loves her. It is a very cute story for you get aged children.
I think this is a super cute, fun book that would be good for younger kids and possibly even older kids! I think when reading, it would be a great opportunity when trying to teach kids about routines. I also think it would be great to read and then talk about things that each student is really good at. Using it as a morale/ self esteem booster.

This part of the story will allow you for discussion about how accidents happen and there may be consequences for those actions being made.

Olivia is a book that I loved as a kid! This Caldecott award winning book is a MF. It would be a great RA for your class! Olivia is about a pig names Olivia and her life! This would go great with UDL 3.1 (activate or supply background knowledge) as well as EL 4 (link lesson topic to students prior knowledge). Students can use their background knowledge to relate to Olivia, the pig. #ucflae3414sp21

“Olivia”, modern fantasy, is by Ian Falconer and has earned a Caldecott medal. It can be used as an independent read, read aloud, or adapted as a reader‘s theater. Olivia is a confident, strong-minded, sassy piggy. This book goes through Olivia‘s days which are always different because she has varied interests from soccer to drama. She always puts her own “Olivia” flair to them. This book can serve as a mirror to a strong-willed child.
This Caldecott Honor picture book is a classic MF about a pig named Olivia who is very hyper and loves to annoy her mother and brother. However, they love her anyway. This story would work as a DR because Olivia‘s character is very dramatic so it would be easy to reenact how she acts in the book. https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/olivia This site contains many resources and activities to assess students comprehension of the book and engage
Olivia by Ian Falconer was written in 2000 and is a Caldecott Honor book. This book is interesting and fun to follow along with. You never know what Olivia is going to do next and her personality makes it all that more enjoyable. This would really intrigue kids because I feel like they can relate to what Olivia does. The illustrations are minimalistic and well done and add to the experience of the book.
