Still flooded me with nostalgia Loving family doing simple household activities together I appreciated that the mom and the dad both had special activities with their children The format eminds me of the Little Bear books Very sweet gently humorous felt so true to life I think every parent will be able to elate to the scene in which mother laboriously gets her children dressed to go outside and play in the snow then asks them to stay put for one minute while she gets herself eady you can imagine what happens but it s played out with such honesty yet such kindness I am a fan of Lobel s illustrations His pigs are my favorite This book is great for children who are just becoming comfortable with eading There are plenty of sight words but also new vocabulary that will euire basic decoding skillsOliver Pig likes to suabble with his sister Amanda but he can also be very caring towards her Other children just beginning to ead might be able to connect with this sibling bondThe snowsuit story was hilarious This was a charming storybook told in four or five short stories chapters Where Oliver and older brother pig is getting used to begin an older brother to his toddler sister But yet sometimes he still wants to be cranky and have things his way as well His parents are patient with him and his sister and teaches both that there is enough love to go around and that being a big brother is sometimes worth it all Cute beyond measure So simple so sweet.
