NO is RJ s least favorite word . . . and he tries his best to convince his dad, his mom, and his teacher to turn No into Maybe or We ll see or Later or I ll think about it. Even though he doesn t have much success, RJ keeps arguing until his teacher suggests that he try to join her classroom s Say YES to NO Club. If RJ can learn how to accept No for an answer and to disagree appropriately with his teacher and parents, he can add his name to the club s Star Board. RJ finds that lots of praise and some rewards come his way when he uses these skills the right way!

Author Julia Cook helps K-6 readers laugh and learn along with RJ as he understands the benefits of demonstrating these social skills both at home and in school. Tips for parents and educators on how to teach and encourage kids to use the skills of accepting No for an answer and disagreeing appropriately are included in the book.

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! I love these books!! Go to http://www.juliacookonline.com to see more of the author’s books!

Bought this book for my grandson to help him understand thaat 'no' means 'no'. Like most kids his age (5-6) they want to push and push some more until they get the answer they want. You know what I mean. LOL. This book has colorful illustrations and there's some repetition throughout making it even more enjoyable for my grandson; he soon learned where the repetition came in to play and would shout it out before I read it.

The Worst Day of My Life Ever is another story about RJ who is having a really bad day. What he learns is that a lot of his problems come from him not listening or following directions. This story teaches the important lesson about listening and following directions. I love how it teaches children to be responsible for their actions, own their mistakes and take control of their day. Also I like how the book explains that hearing is not the same as listening. This book also ends with tips for parents and educators. *A free copy of this book was given to me for a honest review.
