Where Oliver Fits by Cale Atkinson (52)

This is a unique picture book about fitting into a community and a place.

The book is illustrated by pieces of puzzle on each spread of two pages. It is unique and poignant.

Oliver is a little puzzle piece who is excited to find out where he fits in. Will he be, in the mane of a unicorn, on a tentacle of a pirate squid, part of a beautiful sunset or a fiery volcano? Or, perhaps will he be a member of a monster rock band?

When Oliver goes in search of his perfect place, Oliver discovers that finding where he belongs is harder than he thought.

This book will make the reader think where he fits in if he moves or is thrown into a different situation and community.

We can all find ourselves thrown into situations and places where it is hard to know where we fit in. This is especially the case for the migrants who are arriving here from other places.

This book will open so many different conversations with kids.

Rating: 5 stars
