It's tough being the middle mouse. No one's paying any attention to Nora, so she decides to do something her family can't ignore: make noise. Nora slams windows, bangs doors, and upsets furniture, to no avail. It's not until she crashes out the doorand the house goes strangely silentthat her family realizes: a noisy Nora is much better than no Nora at all. "A wonderful story." Booklist

this is one of the greatest kids books every written. the middle child feels left out and tends to get in "trouble". the reality is this child is very much loved!
Have bought it multiple times over the years as a gift for the new big sister a classic
Noisy Nora utilizes negative attention-getters in an effort to be noticed by her family. It just reminds us that attention is attention whether generated positively or negatively. Lesson for grown-ups? Notice your kids all the times when they are being good!
ISBN 0803718357 - It's been a while since I've reviewed a kids' book that needed a note for certain parents with certain child-raising ideas. If you're one of them, you'll want to pass up this book - Nora's sister calls her 'dumb' twice and Nora's behavior is... well, bad. If, however, you're able to overlook that, or just don't care about it, and want to get your child into books, this is one that I guarantee they'll love to have read to them. Nora's parents are spending all of their time with Jack, the baby, and their sister Kate. Nora feels neglected and makes noise, hoping to get their attention, but all she gets is shushed. She finally does get it - by announcing that she's leaving! They worry and look for her until she reappears again, quite noisily. Other than the 'dumb' comments, some parents might find Nora's behavior bad enough to keep them from getting this book for their child. She slams the door, knocks over the lamp and flies a kite in the house. Personally, she's a mouse, I never expected my child to take his behavioral cues from rodents and he didn't if you think yours might, then you need to find another book. Those exceptions out of the way, I think this book is adorable. If, at first glance, you think Nora resembles Max, she should - they have the same mother. Author and illustrator Rosemary Wells, mom of Max and Ruby and Nora, seems to understand what will work for children and laughing, something Nora will make them do, is a surefire way to get them to come back again and again. The illustrations are great, Nora is just hilarious in her frustrated efforts to get attention and there's the chance for a parent to talk to their own child about the RIGHT way to get attention - once everyone's stopped laughing at Nora. Parents with a new baby in the house might find that aspect particularly appealing because a new baby's arrival is certainly a time when an older sibling might feel ignored. - AnnaLovesBooks
This is very funny book that first graders will relate to easily. They will love the pictures and the extent that Nora goes to get her parents attention. It can be read easily by the middle to end of year first grade student. I love sharing this book with my students.
