This is a cute and humurous tale from Olivia which focuses on the dangers of eavesdropping and of presuming you know how to do everything.
Olivia is a little pig who is always up with something. After some mischief’s Olivia’s mother is fed up with her attempts and was complaining to her aunt. That day Olivia overhears her mother saying that she wants to send her to an instituion.Investigating more about the word “institution” she misunderstood what her mother is upto..
And the story ends with this quotes…
Mother : “Well, Olivia, what have you learned by eavesdropping?”
Olivia : “Partial truths and misinformation–“
Mother : “And how did that make you feel?”
Olivia : “Insecure and suspicious–“
I was curious to know what he has got from this book because while reading few pages of the book A was laughing out loud telling that Olivia does things like him.I went on a discussion after reading this book with A. The question “Why is Olivia’s mother complaining than helping Olivia to do tasks in a right way ?” came up from him gave me the other side of the story too.
I felt that the real message of the book is for parents about being careful on how you speak about your child in any situation…
