A Thousand No's
There was a little girl who had a great idea. She had the most amazing, superb, best idea ever!
NO? Wait, what do you mean NO? NO again?
What is she supposed to do with all these NO's?
NO after NO after NO come the little girl's way, twisting and squishing her idea. But by persevering, collaborating and using a little imagination, all those NO's become the building blocks for the biggest YES ever!
A Thousand NO's is a story about perseverance and innovation. It shows what amazing things can happen if we work with others and don't give up, and teaches kids not to let expectations of how things should be get in the way of what could be.
This book has a simple idea- how criticism changes our ideas, sometimes for the better. The illustrations are really simple, sketches in black and white, except for the final YES. If you think about it too hard, it loses its appeal, but at the simplest surface level, it is a cute book about persistence and evolving ideas.
I would recommend for children who enjoy simple illustrations and cute ideas. The word art here is really well done.
