This is a book about Nora who is feeling neglected by her busy parents and she begins doing things to try and attract attention to herself and she goes away and hides and when her parents start to worry and look for her she bursts out of a closet. This is a good book for children to help you read because it has the phrase "Nora! Why are you so dumb?," repeated a lot.

This is a great book for any child that may feel rejected or neglected by their other siblings & their parents paying more attention to their siblings than them. Nora gets into all kinds of trouble, but only to get the attention she thinks she deserves.

Nora always has to wait. Baby brother Jack needs constant care. Older sister Kate gets to do all the fun things. Parents have no time to pay attention to her. Nora can¿t stand for it and engages in a series of noisy. In the end, she runs away to a closet, causing her family to come looking for her.Children who have siblings will like the story and the lovely pictures of the mice family. For parents, we should realize Nora¿s situation and pay more attention to a middle child. Meanwhile, we should tell children that Nora¿s behaviour isn¿t a positive way to attract parents¿ attention and discuss with them what a good behaviour is.

Nora is the middle of three siblings and she feels like she is being ignored by her parents. She decides to make some noise to get some attention, but all she manages to do is get in trouble with her parents. So Nora announces that she is leaving and her family finally realizes that Nora is missing. They all try to find her and Nora reappears. Children will recognize the frustration that Nora feels and understand why she makes noise to get attention. Colorful illustrations of a family of mice and their cozy family life will enchant children aged 3-6.

This is a book about Nora who is jealous of her siblings because they are getting all the attention from her parents so she starts to act up by spilling things and then acts like she is running away. When her family realizes she is missing, she comes back inside the house.

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.
