Editorial Reviews

Eddie Minetti s a third-grade kid with a good heart, but whose out-of-control behavior always gets him into trouble at school. His day gets off to a bad start when he spills orange juice on his dad's new suit. Then he forgets his lunch and must go back hoe for it which causes him to miss part of a spelling test. The girl seated next to Eddie accuses him of cheating when he looks at her paper to see what words he's missed. After the test he accidentally knocks things off his teachers desk, including a jar of sea monkeys that spill all over the floor. When he tries to Use Tiny, the class rat, to clean up all those sea monkeys quickly, his teacher finally declares, "I've had enough Eddie, enough!" And so he acquires a new nickname — Eddie Enough. And so the day goes on with mishap after mishap until he lands in the principal's office. With help and support from the principal, his parents, a therapist, and a teacher, Eddie finally learns how to slow down and manage his behavior. Tests also reveal that Eddie has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD). Now that Eddie's is a lot happier and finally in control, Eddie Enough feels more like Eddie Just Right! Eddie Enough! is enthusiastically recommended reading for ages 5 through 10 (grades K-4) and ideal for explaining children with AD/HD who are struggling with behavior problems at school. Debbie Zimmett's lively and informative text is enhanced throughout with the black-and-white artwork of Charlotte M. Fremaux.
