BOOK REVIEW: Olivia by Ian Falconer

We received this book as a gift when my oldest child was 18-months-old. She is now 5 and I still want to read this to her every day! From the first few pages showing Olivia "wearing people out" to the silly page talking about Olivia combing the cat's ears to the "time out" (where my daugher would shout "mout!" for the longest time) to the "I love you" good night ending, it's a book that every young child and every parent can identify with. We continue to read this on a regular basis and it has become a classic book for our family.
