Tomie also wrote an AMAZING autobiographical early-chapter-book series (26 Fairmount Avenue). He talks about so many parts of his life growing up (including his love of dancing class). I think the Oliver Button book was based a lot on his own experiences. 1 ответ 0 ретвитов 2 отметки Нравится.

Oliver Button is a sissy. At least that’s what the other boys call him. But here’s what Oliver Button really is: a reader, and an artist, and a singer, and a dancer, and more.

Sensitive, well written book about stereotypes in our society. Honestly tells the story about a boy who likes to do different things than what boys typically, according to society, like to do. Parents and teachers need to follow up with a discussion.

OLIVER BUTTON IS A SISSY, by Tomie dePaola, is a very special book. Aimed at young children (but meaningful at any age), OLIVER BUTTON IS A SISSY tells the story of a little boy, Oliver, who doesn't what to do "normal" boy things. He isn't very athletic, but he likes to walk in the woods, draw pictures, wear costumes and put on plays, read, and most of all, Oliver loves to dance. His parents enroll him in a dance class, "...for the exercise," says his father. The other boys tease him and call him names. The girls have to come to his rescue. But Oliver practices and practices his dancing. In the end, even though he does not win the local talent show, everyone realizes that Oliver is special. Oliver Button is a star.

This book has a lot of meaning for my best friend and me, and I am thrilled that I am able to share it with my daughters, ages 11 and 3. Both of them have enjoyed reading this book with me over the years. I have heard the older one reading it to the younger one, because she (the older one) likes it so much. Currently, it is on the wee one's list of frequently asked for books. I asked my three year old why she likes it so much. "Because, Mommy, Oliver loves all of the things I do, he tries hard like me, and he can be anything he wants, just like me. He is my friend." My amazing child is very astute. She has gotten everything that I could want her to out of this story. Do what you love, do your best, don't listen to peer pressure, be who you are...and you will succeed. We are all unique, all gifted, all special. That is the very special, very important message of OLIVER BUTTON IS A SISSY.

"If I believe it, I can be anything, anything at all."

Great book to help kids understand LGBTQ issues

Excellent reading for young boy dancers who are dealing with the bullying among children.

Suburb, subtle book about a boy that is different from other boys around him--he enjoys quiet activities, like drawing to sports. Great read for boys who don't feel like they fit in and for others who may know someone like that. Perfect for classroom reading. Should be in all elementary school libraries.

My son read this story at school and recommended it to me. We read it together, and he explained everything that happened to me.

Bought for school reading. Child enjoyed.
This book was recommended by Debbie Miller, a fantastic reading expert. I couldn't be more pleased with it's simple text and illustrations and ability to generate a conversation about gender stereotypes and bullying. My class was very protective of Oliver Button!
