The lovely rhyming text should appeal to the slightly younger children who just love to say 'NO'! Nursery World Just the book for No-No toddlers Irish Examiner A beautiful rhyming book with a moral. This book should be on the shelves of all young children who love to say NO! Through his adventures The No-No Bird learns that by saying No he misses out on many things and after a near escape develops a new favourite word. This book provides many opportunities for parents and practitioners to discuss manners and positive attitudes with children. Within a primary school setting it would fit nicely into many of the Reception SEAL units. Most importantly, it is a simple story that children will enjoy joining in with.

Oh, and he nearly gets eaten by a snake. The latter fate is unlikely to befall your little one, but the message may hit home. Independent on Sunday Young readers will enjoy Andrew and Polly Peters' simple rhyming couplets which go well with Jim Coplestone's homely, well-designed illustrations. Adults will enjoy the chance to highlight the moral message of what can happen when children just say NO and nothing else. School Librarian A lovely book. Child Care
