Format: Paperback
I used this book to help some of grade 2 students deal with hearing the word "no". Some of my students were having major fits when they weren't getting what they wanted so this book is a great way to talk about this issue.

This book was helpful in reading to my own child about the topic of understanding the word NO! she was interested in the pictures and has picked it out to read before bed a few times. It is a bit wordy and would be more suitable for kids in the age of SK-grade 2 range.

the 5-year-old loves it Oct. 16 2011
By C. Keenan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was surprised by how much my 5-y-o son LOVES this book. He wants us to read it over and over, and really "got" the concept and lately he isn't arguing at every single 'no" in his otherwise good life but sometimes actually says "okay, mommy!" and moves onto the next subject , smiling a knowing smile (if only all us adults had a book for us about how to take "no" so well). even better, he seems to "get" in a new way that there's a "good" way and a not-so-good way to disagree with others. it is an entertaining and cute book and i think frankly he likes it not for any embedded lessons but really because it's a cute story and appealing to a 5-y-o brain and humor. i rarely do reviews but wanted to take the time to highly recommend this book to others b/c it is very simple but a surprising little jewel.

Perfect for helping kids understand!! June 1 2012
By M. Ostrowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I just loved the title!! *AND* The Amazon Preview showed it to have some GREAT content. My boys (ages 6 & 8) LOVE this book! My 6 year old took it into class for sharing and all the children LOVED it!! My 8 year old has Aspergers & ADHD, he could really relate to this book and enjoyed it greatly. He also shared it with his class and they thought it was great! The illustrations are wonderful, the children read this over and over again ... and they really are getting better at dealing with getting "NO" for an answer ... BONUS!! I am purchasing more Julia Cook books for my home and for the teachers at my boy's school. I highly recommend this book it you have children up to about 8 years of age.

Don't like the reward part March 12 2014
By Victoria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a child therapist and a mom with a 4 year old who does not like the sound of no! I was excited to try out this book. As I was reading it to my son, he was really engaged and really seemed to understand the concepts in the book. It was a great conversation starter for him. Then it got to the end of the book where the teacher tells the boy in the story about the "say yes to no club", where basically the boy can get his name in a drawing to win prizes if he accepts "no" as an answer from other people. I was quite disappointed! I was hoping for a tool to help kids learn about accepting no, but not just another method of bribing them into accepting no. I want my children (and children I work with in therapy) to learn about limit setting and accepting no, but I don't want to have to reward them to get them to respond appropriately. So basically the book was not something I could use as a helpful tool unless I decided to do some sort of "say yes to no" reward system like she does in the book. At one point, I tried to talk to my son about saying yes to no, like they do in the book. And his response was "Well then do I get a prize for saying yes to no?" Totally not the lesson I wanted him to take from the book.

Mrs Kid Counselor Nov. 21 2011
By LaurelK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As an elementary counselor I have parents and teachers tell me when their child/student struggles with hearing "no". This book really gives kids a new way to think about accepting no for an answer. It almost becomes a game as we make eye contact and see their wheels turning to think of how they are going to respond. Great book to have and use at home and at school! The activity book is a must if you are a counselor or teacher using this book!

Wonderful tool for teaching children! June 20 2012
By Heather Cammisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been working very hard with my daughter who has ADD about being respectful and how to go about things the right way. Everything in this book reiterrated what I have been telling her and as she read, she would look at me funny and say something like, "it sounds like you wrote this". The pictures and fun tone of the book made what I have been telling her more concrete and we really enjoy reading it together. We have talked about reading it more than once because she says she thinks it really helps her. She can remember a story in a book more than a lecture from mom, or being told to do something so it helps her set good limits and be respectful. I have purchased more of Julia Cooks books and even though I was worried that they would be a little "young" for my daughter who just turned nine, they were written in a manner that did not seem to juvenile for her. Cook's books are an amazing tool for helping kids work through some behavior issues in a fun and positive way!
