Hearing "No" for an answer is so hard for so many kids. Help children learn the important social skills of accepting no and disagreeing with this funny and entertaining book from Julia Cook.
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 will 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 Just Don t Like the Sound of NO! is another title in the BEST ME I Can Be! series of books from Boys Town Press that teaches children social skills that can make home life happier and school more successful. The skills are part of the Boys Town Education Model® that has improved student behavior and classroom climates in hundreds of schools across the country.

Tip for Parents & Educators:
When giving children a reason for saying “No,” be concise and to the point. A long, drawn-out explanation is neither necessary nor productive. You can always explain your reasons at a better, more appropriate time i.e., when the child is calm.
