Olive and the Embarrassing Gift

 Story and Illustrations by Tor Freeman

Here we meet our friend Olive again. This time Olive gets a gift from her friend Joe. Unfortunately, Olive thinks that the gift is ugly, and therefore doesn’t want to wear it, so she tries to find ways to get rid of it. Will Olive find a way to get rid of the gift without hurting Joe’s feelings, or will she learn to appreciate the gift? Read the story to find out!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. I give the book five stars because again the illustrations are bright and colorful and the plot is good, but you also get an added life lesson about how sometimes it is not the quality of the gift, it is the thought behind the gift.
