Mom's verdict: Olivia books make me laugh. Olivia is such a character that parents can enjoy her as well (if for different reasons than the kiddos do). Blueberries for Sal is a classic that never gets old. Nora has been insisting that I substitute her name for Sal's and my own for Sal's mother for the past couple of nights. Children Make Terrible Pets is a silly tale of reversal that you and your kids will love reading together. Verdict-- this week isn't so bad!
