Olivia’s First Day
a Children’s book on inclusion by Deborah S Clothier
Illustrated by Alexander Kulieshow
Olivia’s First Day by author Deborah S Clothier is one of those Children’s books that promote a very strong message. Consisting of only 47 short pages this little book delivers a powerful message that million’s of adults in this country need to learn. It’s all about Inclusion. Seeing our differences and accepting each other as we are. Although we all may look different or come from different backgrounds from each other that’s no reason to dislike someone.
Author Deborah S. Clothier does this in a very ingenious way. You see Olivia is the “new” girl in school. She is nervous on her first day and wants to fit in. To show the differences in each of the students the author depicts Olivia’s classmates as cute little animals instead of showing them as different races or nationalities. Whether it’s Henry Hedgehog, Penny Porcupine or maybe Jimmy Giraffe everyone is a little different. At first the classmates see Olivia as different and whisper and talk about her. But soon they all realize to look past how she looks and see what is inside her and they begin to understand she’s just another kid like they are.
With the bright colorful illustration and the strong message this book carries this is a definite must have for your child’s growing library.
