Jasper & Ollie by Alex Willan


Friendship comes in many forms… sometimes in those of a sloth and a fox. Follow these unlikely friends through a day in their lives and see how opposites truly do attract!


These second grade friends LOVED sharing Jasper & Ollie’s story with each other!

A good book to read – we give it 2 thumbs up!”

Second graders reflected on how Ollie, though slower than Jasper, enjoyed himself more than the quick fox. One student said…

I think Ollie had a more pleasant day because he checked the mail and got ice cream”

When discussing the author’s message, students said…

It taught Jasper a lesson to wait for your friend”


Students even made connections to other characters they love:

“This book reminds us of Scaredy Squirrel!!”
