Contains over 235 Sight Words
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed this book. She especially liked the main character, Olivia, who happens to be a very energetic pig. This book contains many sight words, representing 74% of its text. Graphically the book tells a story using simplistic drawings with minimal colors (red, white and black), yet this book captivated my daughter from beginning to end. In fact, after we finished reading the book, she wanted to read it again. We did and it proved to be as enjoyable as it was the first time for my daughter. Due to sight word content and my daughter’s love of the main character, Olivia, this book receives four stars.
