Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

This is a lovely book that has gorgeous, rich illustrations.  It explains to kids the concept of "enough."  Enough means being content with what you have and sharing with others such things as food, clothing, and even friendships.  

"Enough" is Whipple's debut book and is very relatable to all readers... young and old alike.  

"More is so loud and pushy and Most beats down your door, but Enough whispers, 'I have all I need.'" 

Although a hard intangible concept the author has managed to explain it with ease.  This is a beautiful story and I recommend it should be included in classrooms and elementary school libraries.  I highly recommend this thoughtful heart-warming story.
