Reviews - What do customers think about Oliver (I Can Read Book 1)?

Fun Book  May 30, 2008
This is a fun book for children to read. Stronger readers need very little help reading the book.
A treat for the adults too...  Mar 30, 2000
I have a 1960 edition of Oliver and love to read it with my kids. Oliver the elephant has a simple and friendly conversation with everyone he meets throughout his day. This is one polite elephant. Mr. Hoff's unique use of colors and the light-hearted story will amuse you and make you want to search out more of his books. I have to admit that's why I logged on to this site today--and was flabbergasted to find 127 titles pop-up when I did a search on "Syd Hoff". Looks like I've got some work to do!
