    This is a delightful book for children to build character. My 7 year old loved it and so does my 3 year old. Since my 7 year old is now getting invited to parties from classmates, he understands that sometimes you may not be invited and this book helped him to learn about disappointment and to learn that mistakes happen .This is a great book for this age group.

    Great book to pull out when your child (aged 4 to 6) faces a communications mishap with friends. A short and to the point story that ends on a positive note! I also really liked the Parenting Sandbar. What a great way to share useful info with parents/guardians. Good job!

    This is a great story to teach kids about social issues that may come up. The story is about a fish who doesn’t get invited to a friend’s birthday party like all his friends who do. The author brilliantly includes games, activities, a colouring page, a craft, a recipe, and even exercises so you can really make a teaching and learning experience through this purchase. Highly recommended! Well done!

    This is a delightful book about misunderstandings and appearances. When Oliver misses Sally the Seahorse’s birthday invitation, he learns that things aren’t always what they seem. Even good friends can have miscommunications.

    This Clownfish story is a delightfully short lesson and presented in brightly illustrative drawings of the characters. An important & useful character development tool for young children.

    This is a great story with good imagery, my kids love sea animals so this was a great fit! Not only do you learn some octopus facts, you also go on a journey to learn why we don’t take things that aren’t ours and how parents can help reinforce that at home. A cute story for kids but also gives parents a teaching moment!

    Wonderful little story under the sea that teaches a life lesson on why you shouldn’t take things that don’t belong to you. Has great illustrations.

    A fun book about Oliver the Clownfish who finds himself feeling sad to not be invited to a birthday party but all turns out well! This book is a also like an activity book as it has facts about clownfish, a page to color, a recipe, and a page to write your own little adventure. Cute illustrations and a sweet little story.

    Storybook and Activity book! The Adventures of Oliver the Clownfish by Stephanie Guzman is a book that has great activities, tips and educational information for children. I loved the story and the characters. Also, I appreciate that the graphics feel real. The plot gives us positive, sobering messages that are great for kids. But that’s not all.
