Overview

Yanking cat by tail: no NO. Gentle pat on back: yes YES. And it’s funny how dumping a bowl of food gets a very different reaction from mastering the use of a spoon. An expressive baby demonstrates familiar behaviors — and their predictable responses — in an amusing toddler-friendly offering that merits a giant YES!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Patricelli has a collection of board books (Big Little, Quiet Loud, and Yummy Yucky), all of which feature a young diapered lad with one lock spiraling up from the middle of his head. What I would consider unacceptable behavior is depicted on the page with "NO no" while appropriate actions are shown on the opposing page with the words "Yes yes." This toddler is shown pouring food over his head, picking his nose, eating dog food, filling the toilet with toys, pulling the cat's tail, and engaging in more bad behavior. Parents may want to think twice about sharing this book since their toddlers may not have thought of some of these negative actions prior to seeing them on the printed page. Not a book that suits all tastes. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal

PreS- Two appealing concept books. In Baby Happy Baby Sad , the familiar diaper-clad youngster moves through opposing emotions on each spread, happy while holding a balloon, but sad when it flies away; happy running naked, but sad bundled in a snowsuit. In No No Yes Yes , the child encounters familiar toddler activities both the right way ("Yes Yes," which shows baby eating a banana and the dog eating from its bowl) and the wrong way ("No No," showing baby sampling the dog food). The delightful and amusing acrylic illustrations tell the story in both titles. Baby's activities will be familiar to toddlers, who can actually "read" the pictures and chime in themselves. The concepts ring as clear as a bell even for the youngest of listeners.-Richelle Roth, Wilmington Public Library, OH

Kirkus Reviews
Patricelli's trademark one-haired imp gets into and out of trouble, grinning all the while. On the left-hand page, Baby scrawls on wall (and dog): "No, no;" on the right-hand page, the artistic efforts confine themselves to paper: "Yes, yes," and so on. Dark outlines against vivid backgrounds make Baby's antics pop off the page. The monosyllabic two-word text-so familiar to babies-milks each situation for all its worth. A solid companion to the author/illustrator's other baby books.

    AWESOME book- We call it our BIBLE of child raising

    Have to admit when we first got this book, we were like..What?

    After a short while it became our "bible" of sorts on assisting us raising our son.

    You can make up your own "story" or "rules" as you go along to fit your childs situation.You can add to it, or take away as long as you keep consitant of No No, Yes Yes.
    YOU as parents become the story. Ex:Picture of child running away, We say No no we don't run away from mommy and daddy. Then it becomes later, And other Adults. Or Yes yes, we hold hands with our mommy and daddy . Yes yes, we LISTEN to mommy and daddy.

    GREAT LESSONS...everyday use. When our son isn't listening or is being a little naughty,We first pull out the book and look it up if it is a No No or yes Yes. We ask: Are you doing a No No, or a Yes Yes? He will have the answer and correct his own behavior instantly!

    We have one in each vehicle and one for the house. Now buying one for the babysitter.

    This is a MUST HAVE!!!!

    Great simple lesson for the very young

    My granddaughters love this book. Simple but colorful illustrations. Teaches babies what is a No-No to do and what is appropriate to do. I will be buying copies for gifts for my friends children. The other books in this series are great too. Yummy -Yucky, and Quiet -Loud.

    Wonderful for Toddlers

    My 18 month old BOY will sit and listen to this book about 5 times a day! He loves it. The pictures are not too busy and it really keeps his attention.
