Wonderfully illustrated and the story flows smoothly. I read this book not once, not twice, but three times before they went to sleep – they were fascinated with the artwork, the story, and the rabbit! I finished reading this book to my three grandchildren (ages 2, 3, and 5) and since last weekend, it has become the ONLY book they want to be read to them.
This is a wonderful book that I will highly recommend to caregivers of small children. I know at some point, we will have long discussions and Olive will come up – never give up, always look for the opportunity!
The rhymes are sharp and crisp; the illustrations assist in explaining the tale. Recommended as a bedtime story for children in the three to six year old range.
Members of the Pillow Parade Jumping Club jump over a fence to help children fall asleep at night. Everyone knows that counting sheep will make you sleepy, right?
Olive wants to join the jumping club because of her passion for jumping and her desire to help the children. Unfortunately, only sheep are allowed to join the jumping club. Olive is a rabbit and would not be accepted in this exclusive club for sheep.
Olive does not let this rejection get her down and she does not give up. She BOUNCES into action and hatches a great plan for helping children who are not able to see the sheep jumping over the fence because they live in a tall apartment building.
"But, Olive did not pout or cry.
She simply smiled and waved goodbye.
And as a clever bunny would,
She had a plan that was quite good".
Olive becomes an honorary member of the Pillow Parade Jumping Club because of her great jumping skill and her kind heart.
This book illustrates a wonderful growth mindset and the power of passion, perseverance and resilience.
The rhyming text is fun and the beautiful color illustrations provide value to the story. I read a digital version of this book on a 7" Kindle ereader and the formatting is very good.
This book is a bedtime story for children and so much more. Rejection is very difficult to deal with for children (and adults). We all want to be accepted and embrace a feeling of belonging. When Olive was not allowed to join the Pillow Parade Jumping Club, she immediately started thinking about "Plan B". She did not waste time feeling sorry for herself or getting revenge on those who rejected her. She "had a plan that was quite good."
I highly recommend this book for children of all ages.
What a delightful children's book. The Pillow Parade is the story about Olive a bunny rabbit who would like to help young children fall asleep. At first she approaches the sheep who refuse to let her assist them but Olive persists on her own and succeeds in her endeavors.
Written in rhyme adds to the reading pleasure of this book and is sure to bring enjoyment to its young reading audience. The Illustrations by Hong Anh are bright and colorful. Great children's book by Author Edward Dron.

“I like when Olive was flying with the ducks. And the sheep is very cute. But he was rude when he didn’t let him in the ‘Pillow Parade, Jumping Club for sheep.’”
I especially enjoy the end - say bye bye to the "old sheeps club"
