Item details


Ivy & Olive is a delightful, funky, picture book for young children and their parents. A child will feel their imagination come to life with every read!

Ivy and Olive are about to have their best day ever. But they don’t actually go anywhere. And they don’t actually do anything. Going and doing create limits. Instead, Ivy and Olive set out to explore the limitless joy that can only be found in the magical realm of imagination. The girl and the owl take turns coming up with ideas on what to do this day—like plant a garden with their favorite fruit, lemonellon, or train for the Olympics where they’ll compete in jump rope ballet. The whimsical ideas keep coming and coming until they realize it’s the end of the day. Nothing has been decided but in the last moment, they come up with one solid decision—their very best ideas will come… tomorrow! When children read Ivy and Olive I want them to be excited for their newest wonderful idea! I also want to tap into a parent’s need to shut off from technology and just experience the here and now with their children. This is a cherished, precious time and does not last long. How enjoyable for parents and kids alike to go back to the place where we are free to be. I hope the whimsy, joy and playfulness of my book open readers’ hearts to that freedom.
