Overview

Getting this baby dressed is not going to be easy!

This is the diaper, often a mess,

that goes on the baby who hates to be dressed.

"No! No! Nooo!"

Take one toddler who can't stand getting dressed. Add a mother who is determined to dress baby. The result is a laugh-filled struggle as this mommy uses all her ingenuity and powers of persuasion to get baby into diaper, T-shirt, sweater, and many layers of winter clothing. But just when she thinks she's succeeded, baby peels everything off and happily struts, naked once again. Yes! Yes! Yes!

Witty pictures full of affection reinforce the high spirits of this comic battle of wills so familiar to parents — and toddlers — everywhere.

A cumulative rhyme enumerating all the items of clothing that go on the baby who hates to be dressed, from the diaper often a mess to the jacket woolen and plaid.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Great for the youngest toddler who's learning names of clothing...The illustrations are lively, depicting the roly-poly tot with cheer...This baby is a fun, giggly romp." — Kirkus Reviews

"Smith's naive and rosy-cheecked characters, cozy textures, and crayon-box colors are a perfect accompaniment to Fleming's well-constructed, cumulative, "house That Jack-Built" patterned story . . . Add this pleasing piece to your accumulation of storytime tales." —School Library Journal

"Ideal for reading aloud . . . Should amuse kids who have been forced to wear many an itchy sweater as well as moms and dads who have tussled with naked babies of their own." —Publishers Weekly

"The familiar cumulative structure makes this a snap to read aloud, and kids will delight in repeatedly shouting out "No! No! Nooo!" along with intractable Baby. Smith's gum-drop hued paintings infuse the tussling with tenderness. The twist ending will leave children and parents alike chuckling in recognition." — Booklist

"Smoothly written...young listeners will cheer along." — The Horn Book Magazine

Publishers Weekly
"No! No! Nooo!" is a toddler's resounding chorus as his or her mother patiently tries to dress the child in umpteen layers of winter clothing. In this House-that-Jack-Built cumulative tale, Fleming's (Smile, Lily!) rhymes, ideal for reading aloud, epitomize the unpleasant aspects of the baby's clothing. "This is the sweater,/ itchy and hot,/ that covers the T-shirt,/ wrinkled a lot,/ that snaps over the diaper,/ often a mess,/ that goes on the baby who hates to be dressed./ `No! No! Nooo!' " In Smith's (Beach Day) illustrations, the curly-haired tyke puts up a good fight: the mother turns to games such as demonstrating how much the stuffed rabbit likes wearing the "jeans, stiff in the knee" or pretending to be a bunny herself, wearing the "boots, pinchy and tight" on her head as ears. The artist's full-bleed artwork hilariously captures the sway of baby emotions from giggly during the acrobatic struggles and the "red-faced and mad" child's expression contrasts with the playful row of fish on the toddler's woolen hat. Despite the mother's lengthy and exhausting efforts, it naturally takes no time at all for baby to shed each layer and celebrate with an ebullient "Yes! Yes! Yes!" The willful tyke's antics should amuse kids who have been forced to wear many an itchy sweater as well as moms and dads who have tussled with naked babies of their own. Ages 2-4. (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Any parent who's ever wrestled a recalcitrant, wriggling child into his clothes will smile in sympathy with this patient and playful mother who decides to use lighthearted distraction as a means to get duds like "the sweater, itchy and hot/that covers the T-shirt,/wrinkled a lot/that snaps over the diaper,/often a mess,/-on[to] the baby/who hates to be dressed." And even though mom does seem to succeed, and even to coax the glimmer of a grin out of her grumpy little guy, you can just bet that he is determined not to stay dressed for long. "No! No! Nooo!" Smith's naive and rosy-cheeked characters, cozy textures, and crayon-box colors are a perfect accompaniment to Fleming's well-constructed, cumulative, "House That Jack-Built" patterned story that positively insists on reader interaction, whether one-on-one, when it's fun to hunt for the endpaper-pictured elements that appear throughout, or with a great big group, who will giggle and grin and surely join in the oh-so-familiar game (which would make for wonderful flannelboard fun, too). Add this pleasing piece to your accumulation of storytime tales.-Kathy Krasniewicz, Perrot Library, Old Greenwich, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
