Schmid, Paul, Oliver and His Egg. Disney Hyperion, 2014. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK.
When Oliver finds an egg, he imagines all the fun things he’ll do with his new friend. From sailing on ships to flying through space, this boy has quite the imagination. The pictures are colorful and detailed and the fun. The interactive capabilities are numerous and the story is simple enough for a fun read aloud or for kids just learning to read.The cute, but predictable ending makes this book a good fit for parents to read aloud with their kids as well as easy read for emerging readers learning about prediction and narrative skills. PreK, EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
