Olivia Saya Good Night by Gabe Pulliam- OPTIONAL

Pulliam, Gabe. Olivia Says Good Night, PICTURE. Simon Spotlight, 2016. $3.99. Olivia and her brother Ian are enjoying a bedtime story together. Olivia really wants to make a tent that is like the one in their book. While they clean, they also construct. Olivia collects “treasure” to put into her tent while she’s in the bath. She imagines she is a princess in the desert with all of her jewels. Her mom comes in and convinces her to lay down to sleep. Olivia resists, but is soon out like a light. Based on an Olivia television episode, the reader sees what is happening in real time, but also in Olivia’s imagination. It’s got plenty of Olivia pizzazz, but isn’t the most engaging story. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
