Noah Noasaurus woke up feeling very No. No to brushing his teeth. No to eating breakfast. And definitely No to playing with his little brother. Things only get worse when Noah goes for a walk and relentlessly cheerful Toby Rex, Brian Brontosaurus, and Ava Ceratops follow him. Together, the group starts a bona fide dino parade that even Noah can’t resist. This lighthearted, whimsical story will have readers laughing along at Noah and his friends—as well as at their own bad moods.

Noah Noassaurus is delightful and a lot of fun to read aloud. Dinosaurs are always a big hit and the oh so relatable "No phase" theme is guaranteed to entertain both children and adults. This book is perfect for anyone who ever had a "No" kind of day! (Which is everyone, right?)
NO says Noah - but you should say YES to this book. Someone in my family who shall remain nameless often wakes up feeling very No so I smiled from the opening page of this book, all the way to the perfect ending. Share this with the dino-lovers, and fellow No people in your life.
Every parent and toddler will identify with Noah Noasaurus who woke up feeling very NO! Charming, funny, (I love the illustration of the four dinosaur friends all trying to squeeze through the log at the same time) and a great read aloud! Kids will love to chorus in on the many NO’s!
Noah is having a NO kind of day, and all he wants to do is get away from all of the people who are trying to turn his bad mood into a good one. As he heads to Nowhere, though, his friends decide they want to join him. Will friendship and fun turn Noah's no into a yes? Read Noah Noasaurus to find out!
This hilarious book pairs two of little kids’ favorite things: saying no and dinosaurs. Adults can also related to waking up on the wrong side of bed and feeling very “no” all day. The delightful illustrations in cheerful hues contrast Noah’s mood and make clear that despite the NOs all through the book, it is not, in fact, a grumpy story, but a humorous one. Kids will also have fun imitating all of Noah’s actions. I highly recommend it for story time reading anywhere!
