The perfect tool to teach children how to respond to set their own limitations and respect limits set by others. Sometimes You Have to Say No provides parents, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers the opportunity to speak with children about this important topic.
Sometimes you're not interested in performing a task, going somewhere, or speaking to someone, so you say no.
But whenever Matilda, Emil, Lukas, and Taya refuse a piece of cake from their neighbor Mrs. Rose, she is offended.
Wouldn't it be better if everyone always said yes to everything? This way, no one would ever be sad or disappointed again!
When a mysterious wish on a shooting star magically makes the word no disappear, the children and their neighbors realize that life without saying no just isn't as enjoyable as they had envisioned.
