I Just Don’t Like the Sound of No! By Julia Cook

I honestly don’t know of a child that likes to be told “no”. When children argue most parents argue back, reason, ignore, bribe, give in or lose patience. None of those are a good outcomes for either parent or child. Ms. Cook once again as written a book that helps both of them. Amusing, engaging, and written in just the way to reach a child’s heart and mind, this book can teach your youngster to learn to respond correctly when told no. This is a win-win situation for everyone and lays an important foundation for years to come.
R.J. hates to be told, ”No”. Everything is battle, does that sound familiar? His teacher has had enough of his backtalk and disputing what she says. She encourages him to become a member of the “Say Yes to No Club.” He is intrigued and wants to know what he must do. The teacher tells him at two things: accept “no” for an answer, and disagree in the right way. She outlines four very simple steps for each one. I loved these and believe every home needs this club!
R.J. wanting to be a member of the club begins to apply what he has learned not only at school but also at home. His parents are in shock at first but very pleased! As the story unfolds children are shown how to implement these ideas. Not only will they be happier, but it will prevent conflicts with parents and teachers.
Special words are emphasized in color and a larger font. My granddaughter really liked this in the author’s books. At the end of the book are tips to deal with kids that don’t like the sound of “no”! Every home and classroom needs this book!
