Description

 

See below for English description.

Avez-vous déjà vécu une journée où tout va mal? C’est exactement ce que vit Olivier! Sa journée commence très mal : sa brosse à cheveux reste coincée dans ses cheveux, sa chemise préférée est encore humide du lavage, et les choses ne font qu’empirer. Olivier est de très mauvaise humeur. Il doit bien y avoir quelque chose à faire pour renverser la situation… Olivier sera-t-il capable de changer le cours de sa journée et de la rendre plus agréable?

Ne lâche pas, Olivier! encouragera les enfants à examiner leur façon de gérer les situations difficiles et les jours qui ne vont pas comme prévu. Cet album éducatif et amusant permettra aux jeunes lecteurs de se reconnaître dans les situations que vit Olivier et de découvrir des stratégies et des techniques pour les apprivoiser.

 

Have you ever had a bad day? Olivier sure has! His day starts out… not that great. It all began when the hairbrush got tangled in his hair, and then his favourite shirt was wet in the wash. Things just get worse from there, and all of this has Olivier feeling pretty grumpy. But surely there must be something that he can do to turn his mood around… Will our friend be able to bounce back from the disastrous start to his day?

Ne lâche pas, Olivier! will encourage children to examine the way they deal with tough situations and days that don't go exactly as planned. Readers will relate to Olivier's challenges, and learn from the strategies and tactics displayed in this fun and growth mindset-driven picture book that will teach us how to always bounce back.

Original title: Oliver Bounces Back
