Book Review by Bob Walch

Olivia is determined to make this Valentine’s Day really special. The little, white pig is going to make perfect, personalized cards for everyone on her list. Of course, Olivia also likes Valentine’s Day because red is her favorite color and she can use it to her heart’s delight.

Amassing a pile of red paper, white paper doilies and her crayons, Olivia is ready to begin producing her special Valentine’s Day cards. Each card she makes has a special picture that relates to something the person who will receive it likes. For example, Firefighter Fred’s card has a fire dog and hose on it while her brother Ian’s card features a soccer ball with hearts on it. 
 
There were so many cards to make because Olivia didn’t want to forget anyone but, alas, she did. Olivia forgot her pet dog and cat. Fortunately, Olivia’s mother came up with the perfect solution to this dilemma. 
 
Was this the best Valentine’s day ever for Olivia? Of course it was!
Not only is this a fun story but children who are honing their reading skills can practice by reading this book aloud to their parents or younger brothers or sisters.
