Otto has expanded his vocabulary and learns to say “no” emphatically. He tries his new word out at home and at school.

      No! No! No! Young Otto has just learned a word, and he is taking great delight in his new-found ability to express himself. He takes it so seriously that he says no to absolutely everything, both at home and school. His bewildered parents are at a loss, and his friends are a bit saddened. Saying no all the time means that Otto misses out on a lot of fun, not to mention yummy cupcakes. Bright colours and cute portraits of softly-rounded animals keep everything in perspective. Afterall, Otto is a [...]

      Illustrations are adorable. Story is OK. Once can see how annoying and rude and temper-tantrumy saying "no" all the time is. But the resolution? One shouldn't learn that they must ALWAYS say yes to everything, and that's how this ending feels to me. A little more of a conclusion could have shown that both are good when appropriate. Perhaps that's because I'm currently learning how to avoid manipulators, so "no" can be a good thing. Anyway. That would be over a child's head anyhow. So I suppose t [...]

      As parents, we’ve all been through it. Our kids learn the word “no” and suddenly our happy little camper becomes a contrary, sometimes difficult, little bugger. At the same time, Corderoy respects and understands how the child is feeling. Though Otto liked his new word, at some point it took on a life of its own and made him miserable. That’s when something wonderful happens to turn it around and Otto learns how helpful other words can be.Not only is this book charming and a bit humorous [...]

      Every parent cringes when their adorable little child learns that dreaded word, “No.” Funny how such a small word, a single syllable can cause so much unnecessary drama in a parent’s day. Usually it is followed by the even more time consuming word “why?” However, this story is about a little boy named Otto and his overuse of the word “NO!” Like many children, Otto alienates himself because of his limited usage of positive vocabulary and wears on the nerves of everyone around him, i [...]

      Archie is a rhino with a LOT to say. He has learned how to say NO! And he uses it all of the time - but sometimes, a rhino just needs to say YES, to hugs, and cuddles, and love. A nice read for taling about how to deal with temper tantrums. Children love the illustrations, and Archie is a fun, relatable character who also appears in Why? and More!.

    • The Library Lady says:

      Otto learns the toddler word of power, but also learns how it can backfire. Having said that, don't think that reading this to YOUR toddler will cure them of the habit, like Otto's wise parents, you need to wait it out. Incidentally, Otto is a rhino, but somehow in his striped shirt, with his snout titled, he looks alarmingly like one of my own (so to speak) betes noire, the highly overrated Olivia. Thankfully, he is much less insufferable and the art is terrific.

    • Melanie says:

      Everyone loves Otto, the young rhino. When he learns the word "No!" he becomes not-so-adorable. He says no to everything. When he goes to school he finds that saying no has unintended consequences. For example he says no when the teacher offers a surprise and misses out on a treat. He says no to coming in out of the rain on the playground and his sand castle is ruined. When he gets home he agrees to a hug and learns to say "yes."

    • Kendra says:

      On one hand, nice display of natural consequences, on the other hand it's like this child can only say one word yet is doing and thinking things older children do. It's a little confusing. How old is Otto that he doesn't have words but is also in school? And if he does speak but is just being contrary that isn't made clear.

    • Wilde Sky says:

      A young child learns the word ‘No’ and wants to use it all the time which means he misses out.The illustrations were well rounded and the way the child learns that saying ‘No’ all the time isn’t good was cleverly handled.

    • Julie says:

      A simple, gorgeously illustrated story about a rhino child who only says, "No", and who finds out that the word is not all it's cracked up to be. The endpapers are to die for. It's a good message for little kids, and gives welcome empathy to parents of "no!" kids.Little Tiger Books, 2013

      Once Otto learns the word "no" he will not stop saying it, but after a very bad day at school, Daddy finds a way to remind him of another special word.

    • Mfoot says:

      Non !

    • Nora says:

      Otto learns the consequences of letting "NO" be his favorite word.

    • Steven Matview says:

      It seems like this book would be fun to read in storytime. Has a refain of "no," not too many words and big, bright pictures. Shows the negative consequence of saying "no" too often.

    • Adinda says:

      Een erg leuk prentenboek over een kleine neushoorn in zijn nee-fase. Mooie kleuren en heerlijke illustraties!

    • Nancy says:

      so realistic :)

    • Rebecca Ann says:

      AWWWWW, baby rhino! This is a simple book about a baby who learns the word now. It shows how empowering the word is originally and then how it can backfire.

    • Lindsay says:

      A fun one for parents of toddlers.

    • Bari says:

      NO! is the perfect read aloud for children who love to say the word NO.
