Confiscated! by Suzanne Kaufman - ESSENTIAL

Kaufman, Suzanne Confiscated!  PICTURE BOOK.  Balzer + Bray (Harper), 2017.  $18.

Every time Brooke and Mikey fight over something, Mama confiscates it.  But the brothers keep fighting until all of their toys are gone.  The boys have enough boredom time to realize that playing together is much more fun than arguing – without or with toys. 

So cute!  The dinosaur siblings and the rest of the illustrations are spot on fun for this lesson that needs to be learned by every set of siblings ever born.  And the lesson needs to be learned by parents too – the mom holds strong in the face of her children’s fighting.  Not only should you buy this, you should also gift it to your friends when baby number 2 is born.

Pre-K, EL (K-3), GIFT – ESSENTIAL.  Cindy, Library Teacher
