A companion to Ben Loves Bear, Bella Loves Bunny, and Peter Loves Penguin, Olivia Loves Owl features a little girl and her beloved stuffed owl. Olivia and Owl pick apples and frolic through piles of colorful leaves. After enjoying a perfect fall day, they go inside to wish upon a star and hoot at the moon. The youngest readers will relate to the loving bond between a child and her favorite stuffed animal and how this sweet friendship makes each day special.

An adorable story about friendship, and imagination. Olivia loves her stuffed animal Owl. Owl loves her. They go everywhere together. From playing toys together, to playing outside, and jumping into a pile of leaves, to reading bedtime stories together, they are inseparable. 

Olivia Loves Owl is an adorable story about friendship and imagination. Simple text, and adorable illustrations, make it a great story for toddlers and young readers. We really enjoyed reading this book. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
