I Just Don't Like the Sound of NO! (How about MAYBE?)
by Julia Cook Year Published: 2011
" NO is RJ's least favorite word and he tries his best to convince his dad, mom, and his teacher to turn 'NO' into 'Maybe' or 'We'll see' or 'Later' or 'I'll Think About It'. Even though he doesn't have much success, RJ keeps arguing until his teacher suggests that he try to join her classroom's Say YES to NO Club. If RJ can learn how to accept NO for an answer and to disagree appropriately with his teacher and parents, he can add his name to the club's Star Board. RJ finds that lots of praise and some rewards come his way when he uses these skills right away"!
