Olive and the Embarrassing Gift

oliveandtheembarrassinggiftWritten and Illustrated by Tor Freeman

Though the reading level is 1-2, all grades could learn an important lesson about friendship by reading this book. Olive has a true friend named Joe. He gives her a silly hat to wear. Olive feels embarrassed and her need to look good for others causes her to forget the value of a good friend. The illustrations are delightful too. I recommend it to readers of all ages.
