Oliver West was still in his pajamas while the other kids were outside having fun. Tommy was running and Jackson was high up in a tree. Parker was having fun riding his bike and Bree and Jade were drawing with chalk on the sidewalk but Oliver did not want to get dressed. His Mommy knew he was big and he could dress on his own. After a while when she came to check on him, he was not dressed. She tried helping him to get dressed; she put his right leg into his trousers, found the socks, and searched for the right shoe. Now would he be able to get dressed and get out of the house?
Oliver West! It's Time to Get Dressed by Kelly Louise is an adorable story that tackles the concept of independent dressing in an engaging way. Oliver West's character is cute and there will be many parents and children who will be able to relate to him. Rebecca Sinclair breathes life into the scenes and the characters with her charming and colorful illustrations, making the concept palpable to young readers. The storybook is good for read-aloud and storytelling sessions in classrooms to encourage children to dress independently, and by parents and grandparents to help their kids and grandkids understand how to dress on their own even though they might not be confident in doing it all by themselves. The topic is refreshingly different, relevant, and helpful to parents who find it difficult to get their children dressed, and to children who do not know how to dress on their own.
