I introduced my 18-month-old granddaughter to Olivia just before the new Nickelodeon series debuted in January. I bought Olivia, Olivia and the Missing Toy, Olivia Opposites and a couple of others. She LOVES "O-LIB-EE-A"!!! In no time, she had memorized all the books -- you could stop anywhere and she would fill in the next word (yes, she's only 18 months!). The Olivia TV show, by the way, is wonderful.

Olivia's Opposites is clearly about opposites. Olivia is a plain pig and she is intended to help children understand what words mean and what the opposite is. When I first saw the book I thought it was really plain, but then I thought about the books real purpose and found it appropriate. You could have the students look around the room and find things that are opposites. One at a time they could go and show the rest of the class what they think are opposites and the other students and agree or disagree.

Olivia¿s Opposites is a board book that introduces the concepts of opposites. It is a short read, but each page as the opposite of the page next too it. I have never heard of the Olivia books, but they are very cute board books. For younger children this would be a great and simple way to get them to understand about opposites. The only downfall I saw was there wasn¿t much color to them. A great classroom extension would be to have children come up with an opposite of their own and draw a picture of it. Such as inside and outside, hot to cold and etc. There are a ton of opposites to discuss, they could even make a book of their own and read it to the class!

Olivia showed different sets of opposites. This was a simple book to show kids the difference between things. I thought this was a fun book for younger ones about to start or new students in their first year of school.After reading this story, I could ask the students to name some other examples of oppsites. We could divide a paper in half and draw one thing on the left and its opposite on the right.

This definitely wasn't a typical Olivia book, in which she goes on fantastical adventures. It was a simple board book that just outlined some opposites. I think it was a good book for younger children, such as my 20 month old toddler, but my 3.5 year old girl was somewhat bored reading it. And some of the opposites included in it were somewhat advanced for a toddler to learn (fancy vs plain). But overall, it was a decent book, particularly for a younger child.
