HERE’S OUR REVIEW
Oliver’s Big Problem is a first-ever picture book in the Farm Tales Series by Stephanie Itle-Clark and Jessie Miller. Suitable for kids in grades Pre-K-2. Funny pictures, short sentences, and a sweet story are perfect for early readers.
Oliver is your Typical pig. He loves to eat all day. He also loves playing with his friends, swimming, and running around big farmland. But life was not always fun for Oliver. He had to face many challenges at his first family house. Oliver lived in a tiny house where he could no longer fit in. He was getting bigger with each passing day and his family had to come up with a solution. Thankfully they met Jack who had a huge farm with a barn and he agreed to take Oliver in. With the help and support from his first family, Oliver has found a home and living his happiest days. He is one big, happy pig!
Oliver’s Big Problem celebrates swine in their floppy-eared, curly-tailed fabulousness. In fact, it celebrates the fabulousness in each and every one of us, and the basic needs we all have for food, shelter, and a whole lot of love. The last page contains the discussion questions that can be used by parents and caregivers as great conversation starters for many important topics such as empathy, finding a new home and caring for animals.
