Lobster Press

Oliver Has Something to Say! (Lobster Press) by Pamela Edwards, is about a four-year-old boy who can’t get a word in edgewise because his parents and older sister do all the talking for him. On the first day of pre-kindergarten class, without his family around, Oliver finally gets to speak for himself. And once he starts talking, there’s no stopping him. A humourous and enchanting story to encourage children to speak up. mRb
