No, No, NO!
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Jeanne loves to say "No!" Whenever her mom asks her to do anything — such as pick up her toys, turn off the TV, or get ready for dinner — Jeanne answers, "no, no, NO!"
A charming portrayal of childhood defiance, No, No, NO! stresses the normalcy of this developmental stage and encourages patience, humor, and understanding in both the child and the parent.
A Note to Parents by Elizabeth McCallum, PhD, offers more strategies for coping with normal childhood defiance.
This book is a humorous tale about a kid who uses defiance to test the limits of parenting. It illustrates how defiance can lead to unwanted extremes, like firing your mom, and allows parents to discuss alternative ways to manage independence in their children.

Most parents of preschoolers will recognize the familiar refrain that Jeanne repeats throughout the book. Callier's writing is clear and simple, allowing Masson's spirited pencil and watercolor cartoon illustrations to bring out the emotions of Jeanne and her mother.

Much more than a therapeutic lesson, this title features a well-developed text and expressive illustrations in a soft-toned palette, as well as an afterword that offers a brief but helpful discussion for parents about how to limit the "no's" from a preschool dragon.
