Publisher Summary

What Kind of Book is No!

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This is a great book for the “No!” stage, which seems to be a fairly universal thing for toddlers, unfortunately. May you be the lucky one who is spared! ;) The message that, while it’s initially pretty fun and powerful to say no, you actually miss out on some pretty fun stuff if you don’t actually vary your vocabulary is important… there are natural consequences to always saying No! The illustrations are cute and the facial expressions are extremely expressive, making this a book you can read with your emotions as well as your words.

Who Wrote No!

author & illustrator
Tracey Corderoy

Tracey is originally from South Wales. She worked as a teacher until her first daughter was born, when she left teaching to spend time being a “mum.” She later returned to working at a school, where she delivered a specialist literacy program and helped students who had been out of school long-term with illness reintegrate into the school system. This experience sparked her own interest in writing. Today, she lives in what she calls an ancient cottage in a “hidden valley surrounded by sheep, wild deer and cows with big fluffy ears!”
