Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
There are many ways to say, "No!" and Noah, the youngster in this story, which is written and illustrated by the creator, designer and director of popular cartoon shows for the younger set, comes up with many variations. When his mother suggests it is time to leave, Noah holds his ground and refuses to budge while yelling "no" with many facial expressions. When his mother insists, Noah begins to answer in a myriad of foreign languages as well as robospeak. The illustrations are imaginative, with each picture appropriate to the language being used and Noah is shown as a curly-headed, diapered typical toddler. Noah finally seems to exhaust himself with one last refusal when his mother calls his bluff by letting him know that she planned to take him to the playground and that is when Noah decides to say, "Yes!" The endpapers feature pictures and explanations of the various ways used to say, "No." Reviewer: Carolyn Mott Ford
School Library Journal

PreS-K

Noah, with his unruly blond curls and oversize diaper, is a stubborn little fellow with a fondness for every toddler's favorite mantra: "no!" When his mother sweetly says, "It's time to leave," she is met with page after page of negation, from cowboy speak to pig Latin, Mandarin Chinese to Morse code. Gouache cartoon scenes visually reinforce Noah's multilingual vetoes, from a full-page sphinx and hieroglyphics to a small square panel with a text message. Endpapers provide identification of the languages, pronunciations, and cultures that the precocious youngster employs. Delightful fun in its theme and delivery, this story will be asked for again and again.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ

Kirkus Reviews
There are many ways to say "no," and when Mom says it's time to leave, Baby Noah uses them all. The word itself is not effective, so he moves on to slang, robot-speak and pig Latin, and that's just the beginning. Simplified text, retro design and minimal line work reminiscent of Mo Willems's show Noah expressing himself adamantly in a multitude of ways. The exaggeration and laugh-out-loud humor escalates as various gestures (headshake, back turn) are attempted, and a multitude of languages (Hindi, Etruscan and Russian, to name just a few, with matching costume changes) are utilized. Other modes of communication (Morse code, text messaging, sky writing) come into play, but all fail. Then Mom points out that they are leaving to go to the playground, and Noah may have to reconsider. This clever, appealing concept is sure to be a hit with the very young; with gentle humor and a cartoon-like atmosphere, the expressive pictures beautifully capture the point of view and opinionated stance of a two-year-old who believes he knows exactly what he wants.

    I Also Recommend:

    This book is good for any parent who has a child with the habit of saying "no."

    This book was cute. I love how the author comes up with all of the original ways of saying no. Languages all over the world, written on a plate with peas, textmessages... You name it, it is there.

    Perfect for parents who might want to get their kids thinking that saying no isn't always in what they want to say. (going to the park is fun!).

    This is a great book for storytime, but especially bedtime.

    Not so great

    I was not impressed with this book at all. I have a toddler and I really do not want her to learn a thousand ways to say no ;) My daughter has a great attention span, but this one made her snooze.
