a Calf for Olive


Olive longs for a calf of her own so she can enter the 4-H calf competition. So, naturally, she is upset when she realizes that some of the older kids think she can’t take care of one because she uses a wheelchair to get around.

Her dismay turns to delight when her parents tell her she can choose a calf from the ones on their farm. Olive knows exactly which one she wants—a Jersey calf that was born late and smaller than any of the others. But raising a calf isn’t easy. Olive has to draw on all of her problem-solving skills and work harder than she ever has before.

About the author

As a small child, growing up in Quispamsis, NB, Cheryl Dawn Buchan loved telling stories, riding horses, and visiting her relatives’ farms. Later, she served as a Beaver and Scout leader, T-ball and softball coach, search and rescue volunteer, Sunday school teacher and dog trainer. A Calf for Olive was inspired by the experiences of some of the passengers she met while she was driving an accessible bus. Each passenger was special to her, and they took up residence in her heart. Today, Buchan is retired and lives in Rothsay, NB with her husband.
