Olivia's Collection

cover of book

What's the story?

When Olivia moves into a new house, she watches children playing in the sunshine outside. Olivia is too shy to join in their games. Instead, she decides to collect some sunshine of her own to make her room bright and happy - but it doesn't work out quite the way she expected.

This charming book, for children from 4-8 years, tells the tale of how Olivia's collection of sunshine helps her to make new friends.
