Enough is Enough! by Barney Saltzberg - ESSENTIAL

Saltzberg, Barney Enough is Enough! PICTURE BOOK.  Creston Books, 2018.  $17.  9781939547422.

Olive has had with her little brother’s pestering, so tells him enough is enough!  It takes a little convincing, but her leaves her alone, and she has a chance to rejuvenate until she is ready to play again.

The summary makes it sound a bit odd, but in reality Saltzberg’s book is quite satisfying and fun.  Olive tears a little hole in the backdrop of each page as she moves from scene to scene, which gives this a little kick and when she goes back to her brother, I too felt it was just the right time to return.  What a great way to show feuding siblings that quiet time is a great time to savor, not sulk.
