"No" is RJ's least favorite word...and he tries his best to convince his dad, his 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 the right way!

Author Julia Cook helps K-6 readers laugh and learn along with RJ as he understands the benefits of demonstrating these social skills both at home and in school. Tips for parents and educators on how to teach and encourage kids to use the skills of accepting "no" for an answer and is agreeing appropriately are included in the book. For ages 5-10. 32 pp.

The optional Activity Guide for Teachers suggests everything from tag to 15-bean soup in activities to teach K-6 students how to use the social skills featured in the kid's book.

These 24 games and activities, in addition to being challenging and entertaining, call upon students to use imagination, teamwork, and creativity to complete them. They exercise children's observation, reading, writing, thinking, and decision-making skills.

Each activity provides teacher instructions, lists of materials when needed, and activity sheets for use in-class or as homework. 18 reward coupons can be used to re cognize students who demonstrate the skills. The enclosed CD-ROM has PDF files of all the reproducible pages in the guide plus extra worksheets. 32 pp.
