Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maggie L. Schrock
Young RJ hates the word no, but seems to hear it all the time. No matter where he goes or what he asks, he's always told no. Always quick to offer up a different suggestion, such as "maybe," or "I'll think about it," RJ tries his best to get his way. Unfortunately though, "No means NO," according to RJ's parents. At school, RJ also struggles with being told no. His teacher sets her mind to teaching RJ how to accept no for an answer. She teaches him to say, "Okay" whenever he's told no, then discuss later why he was told no. RJ sets out to get his name and a star on the "SAY YES TO NO" club bulletin board. RJ puts his new knowledge to work both at school and at home, then quickly earns his star. I Just Don't Like the Sound of No! is part of the Best Me I Can Be! series, but is a standalone book. Readers will learn along with RJ how to accept an unpleasant answer, and how to appropriately ask for the reasons behind the decision. Vibrantly colored illustrations and witty language make this book a captivating read for young children. Tips for parents and teachers make it worthwhile for the adults reading it, too.

    Fun & Easy Reading!

    Bought this book for my grandson to help him understand thaat 'no' means 'no'. Like most kids his age (5-6) they want to push and push some more until they get the answer they want. You know what I mean. LOL. This book has colorful illustrations and there's some repetition throughout making it even more enjoyable for my grandson; he soon learned where the repetition came in to play and would shout it out before I read it.

    A story about learning to accept being told no

    The Worst Day of My Life Ever is another story about RJ who is having a really bad day. What he learns is that a lot of his problems come from him not listening or following directions. This story teaches the important lesson about listening and following directions. I love how it teaches children to be responsible for their actions, own their mistakes and take control of their day. Also I like how the book explains that hearing is not the same as listening. This book also ends with tips for parents and educators.
    *A free copy of this book was given to me for a honest review. No other compensation was provided for this review.
