    1. We had a little incident in our classroom where I had asked a student not to take something out at recess. He put it back and then when I wasn't looking, snuck it out to play with anyway. Luckily, we have a brilliant and resourceful librarian. I asked her if she had any books on this kind of situation and she came up with this one. I had the student take the book and read it and answer some questions:What is this book about?What is the lesson we learn in the book?Why do you think I picked this b [...]

    2. The text focuses on giving children patience after someone has told them "no." I like the ideas of vary then answers that the young boy gives in the book. While "No" is certainly a response that is needed at times, it's helpful to provide young children with an explanation of why vs. simply saying no.

The pictures are adorable and so is R.J. who features in number of Julia Cook's stories.

    4. I got this book to use for a K student this year who had melt downs every time he heard the word "No." By the end of the year he would challenge me to say "no" just so he could show off his self control. Since my little ones have the hardest time with the word, I had to edit some of it.

This is a very humorous story about the impact of ones’ actions. The illustrations humorously depict the somewhat exaggerated consequences of one’s actions. The CONTENT focuses on the following S/E skills and concepts. Self-Control and Self-Regulation. I would use this book during large group circle time to have a conversation about the word “No” discuss, g [...]
