Olivia: Olivia… Takes Ballet Episode Synopses:
Olivia Takes Ballet / Olivia and Her Ducklings

After a fun day at the park, Olivia and Ian return home with some unexpected visitors – a mother duck and her ducklings! The harder Olivia and Ian try to keep the ducks a secret from Mother and Father, the more household mischief they all seem to get into.
Olivia Runs a Carnival / Olivia Explores The Attic

It’s Olivia’s parents’ anniversary and they’re planning a night out at a special restaurant. When they can’t find a babysitter, Grandma happily volunteers. When Olivia suggests they all surprise Mom and Dad at dinner, she discovers the restaurant isn’t at all the way she imagined, but it’s a lot more fun!
Olivia and Francine both volunteer to be classroom pet monitor, so the teacher, Mrs. Hogenmuller, tells them each to explain why they deserve the job.

Olivia Goes Camping / Olivia Becomes A Vet
Francine comes along reluctantly on Olivia’s family camping trip, and Olivia can’t believe that anyone could be so unprepared for life in the great outdoors. But with a little hiking, bug catching and marshmallow roasting, Olivia is sure she can transform Francine from a novice to an expert camper.
After a trip to the vet with Julian’s pet lizard Bernie, Olivia is inspired to become a vet herself.

Her treatments for Edwin and Perry turn out to be a bit messier than she expected.
Olivia Take Ballet is about 95 minutes long and became available March 2nd. We had seen most of these episodes on television and were excited to have them on DVD. As always, we loved watching Olivia and all of her adventures. If your child loves Olivia as much as Evan does, this DVD will be the perfect addition to your collection.
You can purchase Olivia Takes Ballet for $14.49 on Amazon.
