This is the kind of book that makes me want to have a kid. It makes me yearn for the days when my brothers and sisters were busy little three and four year olds, going about all of their very important business. So, so cute.

This is a good reading that can be used to talk about gender and identity issues with younger kids.

a wonderfully funny book ages 2-7 heart warming and entertaining

This book is hilarious! I grew up in the 70s and I see a greater selection of quality childrens' books today. Olivia could be your daughter. It gives a humorous and realistic look at the life of Olivia the pig. I particularily enjoyed Olivia's attempt to recreate a Jackson Pollock painting.

Well and stylishly illustrated, but the text is a little too coy and the main character a little too clothing-obsessed to make for an enduring book. Inherent gender bias might make it slightly more appealing to girls.
