    1. "The Yes" leaves a comfortable existence to get to "The Where" - but a swarm of "No's" will try to stop any movement forward. Great lesson for small children.


    2. Here’s what I loved, and why I would ordinarily have given this book an easy 5-star review:This book is beautiful. Each spread is beautifully constructed. There’s a lovely flow to the language, and the use of font sizes and positioning of the text in places makes it a joy to follow on the page. As an adult, I love its message of empowerment and self-belief. The world is full of Nos and we could all use a little more of that fearless, determined, persisting-in-the-face-of-adversity Yes in our [...]


    3. Every once in a while someone creates a picture book whose message is universal. Sarah Bee's THE YES is that book. Give this to every graduate, whether from grade school, high school, or university, because along the way to their next adventure, they'll be many Nos on the way but the Yeses can always succeed. With language that is a bit Seussical and made up words like trickety, lumpen, thereish, and flundering, THE YES tells the story of the Yes who had a Where to go. Along the way, the Nos wer [...]


    4. The Nos noed and noed and noed in numbers no one could count. The Yes only yessed in all his goodness and bigness and yesness.Other reviewers have expressed concern that reading this book to very young children might somehow confuse them about how important the word 'no' is, especially when coming from a parent. Maybe just talk to your kids, explain the difference, teach them the lessen. Don't let books parent for you. For older kids, and even for this 26 year old, The Yes has beautiful language [...]


    5. Really interesting and thought provoking book about the power of saying yes instead of NO. Whilst the highly philosophical nature of this book might make some adult readers a little nervous about reading it, I think there are so many opportunities for interesting discussions with children as a result of this. Unusual and optimistic.


    6. The yes is one of these fantastic books that makes you think about your basic assumptions. Why is the world always so in favour of the 'no', and why does it take an awesome little three-legged orange monster to teach you the power of the yes?It's a lovely and sweet book, highly recommended.





    7. This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. Visit us for new picture books reviews daily!Hello, everyone! Our book today is The Yes by Sarah Bee and Satoshi Kitamura, a Seussian parable about the power of positivity over doubt.In a cave in the great wide Where, there lives a large, friendly, orange beast named the Yes. One day, the Yes goes out to explore the great big Where, and finds that it is filled with Nos, who travel in endless, aggressive packs and discourage the Yes at eve [...]


    8. Age: Kindergarten-1st gradeA beautiful partnership between a motivational story and illustrating the ambiguous. The Yes is a one-dimensional creature that finds himself being bogged down by a dusty cloud of Nos. Whenever he asks the cloud of Nos to do something, true to nature, they say no, no, NO! But, "The Nos were not a thing, and the Yes was a great big thing." So, the Yes continues to defy the Nos at every turn until they blow away on the wind. The author and illustrator are able to capture [...]


    9. One of the real challenges for me as a parent is to have an active role in my daughter’s abstract and metaphorical thinking development. We often play with concepts and create stories around them but nothing compares to using her curiosity and her love for books as essential instruments.I was happy to find Sarah Bee’s book and read it both as an unusual, playful story about being positive and also as an allegory on the abstract notions of Yes and No, strongly connected to I do/ I can versus [...]


    10. Along his journey, the Yes encounters many Nos: in swarms, flocks and packs. "They teemed and seethed. They picked and nipped and snipped and snicked." The nos are loud and aggressive, but they are also flimsy. And "the Yes was a great big thing." But, through belief, determination, courage (fill in your own word choice here), the Yes finally arrives in a place where there "was no more no and never had been." An interesting picture book to use with older students to talk about symbolism, theme, [...]


    11. Most kids go through a phase where they negate everything their parents suggest, and this book seeks to counteract this by enforcing the positive side of saying "yes" to things. But it does so by turning an abstract concept into a dinosaur-like creature and sending it on a journey, while it is being stalked by a pack of Nos.It's weird, and I highly doubt it would work, at least in regards to teaching your child anything. You might be able to keep your child's attention during the reading, but th [...]


    12. The Yes has a Where to go to. He has to leave his safe, comfy, warm nest and venture out into the big world where the No’s live. There are endless Nos out there and they do their best to discourage the Yes. They know all the best reasons for not doing something or going somewhere. But the Yes is a very wise creature and knows that the Nos are very insubstantial creatures. If they are ignored, they grow smaller and smaller and disappear. What wonderful advice, not to give up, but to find a way [...]


    13. This book is wonderful. The pictures are delightful and pair with a beautiful story about a creature overcoming all the Nos for the world. The message is as apt for small children as it is for the adults that will read this to them. And this book is a delight to read aloud. The author has fun with words and sound and has a joyful jabberwockian flair to her prose. Buy this one and read it to your child often. Or read it to yourself. But please, make sure to read this out loud.


    14. Bookseller: JuliaSurrounded by swarms of Nos, Yes, a great orange thing, leaves his safe nest to go out and explore. But the flimsy Nos try to impede his every step.This is a charming story about overcoming obstacles full of encouragement with wonderfully colorful illustrations.This book will be a fun read for the whole family


    15. This artistic and non-conventionally worded book teaches kids the importance of persisting to YES- and swatting away all those pesky "Nos". The rhythm and rhyme is brilliant and this would make an excellent read aloud even though a lot of the words are not "correct". I loved that this was a fresh, different kind of book I had never seen before.

    17. A lovely book that reminds me of e. e. cummings' poetry. It's an amazing read aloud; I shared it with a 2nd grade class who enthusiastically became a chorus of "nos" and "yeses." We had a great discussion about the power of staying open to saying 'yes.'



    18. I thought this story was so cute! I can totally picture a class of small kids loving it. I definitely have met some students that say no to literally everything and always have an excuse why they can't do something, hopefully reading this book would inspire them a little bit.


    19. We are so used to saying #No. Our life will be #dramatic and different if we dared to say #Yes instead.#YoungReaders #PictureBook #BookReview #ChildrensBooks #amreading


    20. Brilliant book about the power of ‘Yes’ in the face of all the ‘no’s of the world. The importance of self-belief when faced with doubt and over-coming your fears


    21. This colorful and beautifully illustrated picture book chronicles the challenges the Yes, a “great big orange thing” faces as it travels through forests, rivers, and hills to get to its goal. All along the way, the Nos tell him he can’t do it, but the Yes pushes on. The book features made-up words and has an almost Seuss-like quality about it. I thought this book was lovely to look at and conveys a strong message: there will always be people around you telling you that you can’t do somet [...]


    22. I have mixed feelings about this picture book from Great Britain. While I applaud the positive messages of affirmation, resilience, and persistence, I have some concerns that the message may be misunderstood or misinterpreted by many young readers. I don't think the author is encouraging blind risk-taking or ignoring the no's in our lives since naysayers can often pull us down, but I wonder if there isn't room for some caution in our lives. In some ways the book seems more suited to a much older [...]


    23. The illustrations were beautiful, and I loved the language - reminded me of The Phantom Tollbooth in places, which is one of my favourite books to give to kids who are ready to learn about satire and wordplay and all the giddy goodness Norman Juster dishes out in that book.BUT.Sometimes no has to mean no, especially when you are a very little one. And while I am totally on board with the "No, you're too fat to climb that tree; you're too heavy for the bridge; you're not strong enough for the riv [...]


    24. I really love what the author was trying to do with the whole yes/no thing, but it took me a little while to figure that out. And this is supposed to be a book for children, so I'm very curious how well children are really going to catch on. At times it was very difficult to understand what was going on.


    25. This book will either be loved or hated by readers. If they are good at abstract thinking, they should be just fine and enjoy always getting a Yes instead of a NO. If, however, the reader is a more concrete thinker, they will not like this book one bit. I'm an abstract thinker myself, so I did enjoy it. But even I found it quite confusing at first.


    26. The message in this book is powerful, but my opinion is that it zooms right over young children’s heads. Suitable for older children and adults that can understand the journey taken. “Lumpen” and “snicked” are two unique words in this book.
