Archie is adored by everyone. That is until he learns a new word… ‘No’. This doesn’t go down too well with his parents, not at dinner time, bath time or bed time, but when Archie practises his new favourite word at nursery it gets even worse. Archie finds that as well as putting everyone else in a bad mood, it can backfire on him too and when he starts missing out on nice things he gets really upset. Daddy comes to pick him up but will Archie be able to find a new word when he’s offered a hug?
Gorgeous illustrations and a very simple text make this an ideal story for little ones who are learning their first words. Children will recognise situations and remember Archie’s story might be a useful technique when parents are faced with their own examples. The lovely double spread pages are a particular delight and ‘No!’ is sure to produce giggles all round. Any offer of a repeat read is sure to be greeted with a resounding Yes!
