A Yes-and-no Story

See 1 Critic Review



Children are invited to shout out the answers--some silly, some serious--to yes-and-no questions as they follow Ollie during a day at school.

What will Ollie wear to school? A bathing suit? NO! A space suit? NO! A police officer's uniform? NO! Will Ollie wear pants, a shirt, socks, and shoes? YES!

While chock-full of fun, this read-aloud favorite offers many educational opportunities as it engages children in the reading process, exposes them to the sight words yes and no, and teaches social skills and positive classroom behavior.
