    One thought on “Big Time Olie”

    1. A great book for preschoolers and younger. The illustrations are adorable and the simple language was easily repeatable my my 3 yr olds. No educational value except for reading and instilling the love of books in your child! Highly recommended for the smaller children.

    2. My girls love Rolie. This one was sweet and well illustrated. It's not our favorite one but I would still recommend it.

    3. The imagination William Joyce has is beyond amazing and every time I read one of his stories, I begin to feel like a child again. Rolie Polie Olie was on TV when I was growing up and I remember watching it and thinking that these places were real. Big Time Olie is another story that brings his imaginative thinking alive through a book. The illustrations are full of vivid colors and pull the reader right in with the colors. I am more interested in a story when it is full of color and bubbly chara [...]

    4. William Joyce is my kind of guy. I just love a person with an incredible imagination and the determination to bring it to life. Lesson ConnectionsUse in an author study about William Joyce. This book is a terrific example, when combined with another Joyce book, to demonstrate how a single author can write to several different audiences. I can think of several mini-lessons for this book. The first would be an awareness of your audience. The next few days you could compare a book by the same autho [...]

    5. Joyce, W. (2002). Big Time Olie. Laura Geringer Books.Gr. K-3. Olie is not the right size for anything – too small to go Mount Big Ball, too big to jump on his bed. He takes matters into his own hands and tries the shrink-and-grow-a-lator, which sends him on adventures he is only too happy to come home from, and sleep in his just-the-right size bed.Curriculum: Kids who feel they are not the right size will relate to Olie and learn from him that everyone is perfect just the way they are. This w [...]

    6. For every little boy and girl who are convinced that they will never ever be tall enough - this book is for them.Olie mistakenly makes himself very small and then larger than his home.But he finds out that bigger is not always necessarily better!Very cute pictures bring this story to life!

    7. We are HUGE fans of the Rolie Polie Olie cartoon (no longer on TV) at our housebut the books are bleh. The artwork is great - silly and vibrant, but the writing is substandard. The story lines are OK, but it just doesn't work. I usually do a lot of improvising when we "read" this book.

    8. Seeming to target younger audiences than much of his other work, Olie is a character Joyce seems to have created to reach toddlers- full of large blocks of colour and simple shapes. Bearing that in mind, I would recommend this as a book for parents of non-reading-age children.

    9. Picture Book; Cute story of how Rolie feels he is not big enough or too big - just not the right size. He plays around with a machine that makes him very small and later very big. Cool illustrations. Gr. 1-3; Highly recommended.

    10. I'm a little bit bigger.Don't make little bit smaller.I'm a little bit taller.I'm growing everybody up.I'm a little bit bigger.Don't make little bit smaller.I'm a little bit taller.I'm growing everybody up.

    11. This book is a great book for children when they are in that in between stage where they are too little for some things, but are also too big for other things. The children love to repeat after me as we sing Olie's song. I love the illustrations.
