I Love Ollie Series (Bilingual Traditional Chinese/English)

小斑馬系列

The I Love Ollie picture books by Australian children’s author and illustrator Anna Walker focus on the special moments and relationships of childhood. With simple rhyming text and appealing illustrations, this series is ideal for special reading times with toddlers and preschool-aged children. The series features Ollie, a young zebra who loves exploring with his dog Fred and spending time with his family and friends. Each story begins with the statements ‘My name is Ollie. I love …’ and finishes with Ollie tucked into bed at night. In each book Ollie lists different things he loves about the particular celebration, activity or person featured in the title. He enjoys craft activities, exploring, baking, games and simply spending time with those that he loves. Although referred to in this review as ‘he’, Ollie’s gender is never specified as the books are written from a first person perspective, enabling both boys and girls to identify more easily with Ollie throughout the stories. 一幕幕親切的生活小故事,配上明亮柔和的水彩插圖,以琅琅上口、中英雙語對照的押韻短句娓娓道來,結合成一套讓小小朋友及家長均愛不釋手的優美童書。
