Dinner with Olivia by Emily Sollinger

Sollinger, Emily Dinner with Olivia illustrated by Guy Wolek 24 pgs. Simon Spotlight, 2009. PICTURE BOOK. $3.99. Olivia gets invited to her friend Francine's house for dinner. Although Olivia is excited, she is nervous too because she wants to make sure she does everything properly so she can impress Francine's family. She practices with her stuffed animals at home but nothing can compare to the real thing at Francine's!! She gets in trouble for telling funny stories and for spilling food...how could everything go so wrong? This is a very cute picture book and a cute story, but there is a lot of text on each page making it hard to keep kids' attention. EL-OPTIONAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
