Description

Olive learns that it’s okay to feel different and sometimes opposite emotions all at the same time.

In this illustrated picture book, Olive experiences contradictory emotions. The first day of school is exciting but also scary. When she attends a friend’s birthday party, she is delighted for him but also jealous that the presents aren’t for her. And when she thinks about her little sister, she’s both glad and mad—for lots of reasons. Olive helps young readers explore the sometimes-contradictory ways they feel about significant events in their lives. Building social-emotional intelligence in children helps them to allow all of their emotions to coexist inside them. It’s part of being human to feel many different ways—all at once.

Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC of Olive All At Once by Mariam Gates. This is a perfect SEL read-aloud because it validates every child's feelings, no matter how complex or "mixed-up". The illustrations are captivating and the message is presented loud and clear.... it's always ok to feel how you're feeling, even if sometimes you can't understand all of the emotions yourself. Can't wait to see this on my classroom library shelf!

This was a really well written book about feelings. It has gorgeous illustrations and it has representation with people of different skin colors. Often times, I find that children's books have one skin color in its illustrations. Olive has a lot of emotions and the book shows Olive going through her day to day life and it explains her emotions. It also explains to children that it is okay to have a mix of emotions.

This was a fun book to read with my son. It was a great way to learn about different emotions and that it is okay to feel two emotions at the same time. The illustrations are bright and colorful. I enjoyed the use of color to represent the different emotions.

This is a great book about feelings and emotions. It explains how you can feel more than one emotion at once. I will definitely be reading this to my 5 year old who sometimes has a hard time expressing her emotions.

I LOVED the illustrations of this book. The colors are so vibrant and beautiful and I know kids would be attracted to the pictures, Books about feelings are so important for growing emotionally intelligent kids and I loved the way Olive's feelings are all explored. It felt slightly disjointed, but I think kids would like it.

This book came at the perfect time, my little guy has been having big emotions recently so we have been trying out a few books about emotions, and I love this one! Most of the books we have read don’t really mention how you can feel conflicting feelings at once and this books does it so well! My little guy loved the artwork as well! Such a good read!

Was this review helpful?

Olive All at Once would be a great addition to any classroom’s SEL curriculum. Olive shares that it’s ok to have conflicting feelings. That we might feel delighted AND jealous at a friend’s birthday party. This is so important for children to understand - that we have many feelings and sometimes they get jumbled up!

This was cute and sweet. And extremely short. Took me less than 5 minutes to read it. Great for kids, and a good lesson for adults too.

Cute book about feeling more than one emotion at the same time and understanding your feelings. I loved the illustrations and the different scenarios Olives went through in the book.

Another great children’s book! I read this to my newborn so it may have been over her head lol, but I know my toddler would love it. It’s kind of hard to read by ebook, but maybe that will be cleared up / made easier come pub time. I loved the lessons it taught, and how it went back and forth between the narrator and Olive herself. I’m sure the physical book is absolutely adorable.

The story was cute and it is easy for children to grasp the concept of. Olive is a little girl who is coming to terms with the different feelings she has.
This book gives aid to children who are beginning to grasp that it is ok to have multiple feelings at the same time.
This is a perfect story time read for parents and teachers. I do think if young children were to read this on their own, it may be a struggle to understand the difference between Olive’s dialogue and the narration. Otherwise it is a great story.

What an awesome read for little ones who are struggling with naming their emotions. Especially when they have more than one emotion going on at the same time. Perfect for my kindergarten age son. The illustrations are bright and colorful. The book held his attention with situations he can recognize.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I thought this book was incredibly cute as well as being age appropriate. The writer did a fantastic job at showing the different emotions throughout the story with examples but with setting the story up fantastically with the different emotions stated at the very beginning!

This book explains how children can feel more than one emotion at a time. I loved the conversation between Olive and the narrator. That was fun! The illustrations were colorful and helped tell the story while not being too overwhelming. This book would be an excellent addition to an elementary school library or in a school counselor’s office.

Thank you NetGalley and Sounds True for the advanced copy. All opinions are my own.

This book is filled with big emotions. It would be great for kids to read to understand all the mixed emotions we feel and that it's ok. The images were nice and colorful. It touched on a lot of issues a small child might experience.

This is a great book to help young children understand their emotions. It also shows that it's okay to have several emotions at once. The illustrations are very cute as well. This is a wonderful book for little ones.

Feelings are sometimes hard to understand. I like how this book talks about all the different feeling you can feel not just by themselves but at the same time. What a great book to help kids cope with their ever changing feelings.

Was this review helpful?

This book is about an adorable little girl who feels her feelings all at once. She learns how emotions aren’t always binary and can be mixed together at any point of the day. It can be used as a great conversation starter with your little one or a classroom full of feelings. I highly recommend adding it to your collection for any pre-school or elementary age targeted library.

Thank you so much to Sounds True Publishing and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.

Olive has feelings, lots of them but sometimes she feels them together and all her emotions become a jumble with too much going on.

This was such a perfect way to showcase to children the ways emotions can overcome you in multiple ways, how you can feel one important feeling and another will come join it even if you don’t want it there.

I liked the story, Olive was adorable and how she kept talking to the storyteller to share exactly what emotions she was feeling and why she was feeling them. She was so sweet, I liked the way everything was explained and the adorable illustrations along with it all.

This is a great book to share with children, it’s a good way to be teaching about emotions but in a fun and easier way. I really enjoyed this sweet book and how easy it would be for children to understand and follow along with it.

This is a cute story about Olive, a preschooler, who experiences a range of emotions. Sometimes she has conflicting emotions. The illustrations are engaging and the situations are familiar to small children and their families. The story has several vignettes that might stimulate conversations and emotions and behaviors, both positive and negative. I think this would be a great addition to a family, daycare, or preschool library. I thank NetGalley and Sounds True for the opportunity to read this ARC.

Olive all at once is a story of a young girl, Olive. It's her first day at school and she is excited as well as nervous. And it makes her wonder how she feels two opposite feelings at the same time.

This is cute and adorable little story which will help young kids to overcome fear of first day of school.

Thank you Netgalley and sounds true publishing for ARC in exchange of an honest review.

This was cute, and I liked the message. Olive is a likable main character with very relatable problems and feelings for a girl her age. Her book would be a good way to teach children about conflicting emotions.

Was this review helpful?

This is a beautifully illustrated book for children to help them understand their emotions. So many books will talk about various emotions, but this one deals with the reality that we will have contradictory emotions at the same time. Children need help understanding that they may be happy and jealous at the same time.

Was this review helpful?

This is a great picture book about emotions and how we can have contradicting emotions at the same time - it's a great book to open discussions with the little one about emotions, identifying them and understanding them.

There is no narrative story per se, the book follows Olive and a narrator as they narrate how Olive is feeling in various situations, to which Olive reply about the other emotions she has. It's a funny dialogue.

The illustrations are very cute too, brightly coloured but in a harmonious way.

This book is a mix of learning and fun, easy to read, amazing illustrations.
I think this book will show to the children emotions and help them understand them. Overall, I think kids will love it.

Great little book that opens up the converstiaon of the complexity of feelings for the youngest of children. This could be a great conversation starters for adult caretakers with the children in their life about how they are doing about different aspects or changes in their life. Using Olive as the main character also helps personalize the emotions and I can easily see how parents could refer to Olive and how she might feel in a given situation, if it is hard for a child to identify their own emotions about something.
The art style was lovely as well and the use of colors facilitated the understanding of these complex feelings.
