No No Yes Yes by Leslie Patricelli

YES! This must-have toddler title sheds light on some concepts with a comical flair.

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 book that merits a giant YES!

About the Author

Leslie Patricelli is the creator of a series of best-selling board books starring her beloved (almost) bald baby as well as Higher! Higher!; Faster! Faster!; Be Quiet, Mike!; and two stories about the Patterson Puppies. She lives in Ketchum, Idaho.

“My Grandma was a pastel artist and, for as long as I can remember, an artist is what I wanted to be too,” says children’s author and illustrator Leslie Patricelli. “My hobby as a kid was drawing cartoons and writing stories, and I started to consider a career in art in seventh grade. When the multiple choice career test I took resulted in a recommendation that I pursue a career in forestry, I went back and changed all my answers, so that it recommended instead that I pursue graphic design since they didn’t have children’s book writer or cartoonist on the list.”

Today, Leslie Patricelli’s legions of fans are evidence that career tests are not always reliable. Her colorful board books about opposites —Yummy Yucky, Big Little, Quiet Loud, and No No Yes Yes —follow a diapered protagonist as he discovers some curious contradictions, such as “ladies are big” while “ladybugs are little.” Her inspiration for the series came from her son Beck who, at one year old, “was constantly putting everything into his mouth.” Says the author, “I found myself saying ‘Yummy!’ and ‘Yucky!’ all the time. I began to draw a baby dramatically expressing his taste or distaste for the things he was eating. The idea of Yummy Yucky was born!”

Leslie Patricelli’s baby board books also include Potty, Tubby, Tickle, Toot, Binky, and Blankie, which play up scenarios near and dear to every toddler’s heart with the artist’s humorous, bold graphic style. Here again, the author-illustrator drew on her parenting experiences. “During our years of early child-rearing, my husband and I have spent countless frantic hours looking for Binky. Usually the search is tense, as it typically begins when our toddler wants her binky NOW! I found myself thinking how funny it must look to our kids to see us on our hands and knees, digging around the house. As for Blankie, this book was created as an ode to that beloved item.”

Baby also stars in a series of holiday board books: Boo! (Halloween); Fa La La (Christmas); and Huggy Kissy (Valentine’s Day); and Hop! Hop! (Easter).

Leslie Patricelli is also the author-illustrator of several other picture books, including
Higher! Higher!, a Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards Honor Book, and the Patterson Puppies series.

She lives in Idaho with her husband, Jason, her two daughters, Tia and Tatum, Leslie’s son, Beck (who is studying jazz in New York City, but still has a bedroom), a dog named Shep, three cats named Oreo, Kiki and Red Devil, and a leopard gecko named Bananaz.

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!!!!
