O is for Orangutan and Ollie – Blogging from A to Z


OOOOOOOO – I like saying that! Today I’m going to introduce you to two books featuring the letter OOOOOOOOOO!

First up a gorgeous book about an ORANGUTAN. Debbie owns a copy of this book and says it’s beautiful and informative. Rita Goldner did a wonderful job in both the story and the illustrations. Isn’t that orangutan adorable?


When a young orangutan wakes in his nest of leaves, his day in the rainforest begins. He swings through the canopy searching for food, visits the river below, and encounters other Borneo wildlife-some of which create great danger. At day’s end, the young orangutan settles into a new nest of leaves with his mother, ready for another adventure tomorrow. Full of colorful, whimsical illustrations, the book also includes words to know, fun facts, and activities on related website.

ORANGUTAN: A DAY IN THE RAINFOREST CANOPY is a Nautilus Book Award silver winner in the picture book, non-fiction category! This national book award honors books that inspire and connect our lives as individuals, communities, and global citizens.

Pick up your copy in Kindle or Hardcover.

Next meet OLLIE in Ollie Discovers the Planets by Anya Akers


Ollie is an adventurous little alien who is both inquisitive and fearless. He lives with his Mum and Dad on a little planet called Pluto , just left of the twinkling, winking star. Ollie wanted an adventure, and as he looked up at the beautiful shimmering stars, he decided that he wanted to explore the biggest, and the brightest star of them all. It was called the Sun, and it sparkled, it shimmered and it shone.

You can pick up a copy of Ollie’s book directly from Anya’s website and also follow Ollie on Facebook.

Come back tomorrow to celebrate the letter P.
