"A charming story about optimism and self-confidence" The Yes is a cheerful orange creature who sets off to explore the big wide Where. But the Where is home to the Nos, who travel in packs and discourage the Yes at every turn. They tell the Yes that the tree is too big to climb, the bridge is too rickety to cross, the woods are too scary to explore. But even just one Yes is stronger than countless Nos. Fans of Dr. Seuss will fall in love with the bright illustrations and clever wordplay, and the heartwarming message about overcoming obstacles makes this book the perfect graduation gift.

Reviews

"Kirkus Reviews""A nice choice for counselors and others working with children to build social-emotional skills. Comforting and full of encouragement, this may be just the selection for adults or children struggling with fear and self-doubt.""The Wall Street Journal""It can be risky for a writer to use playful homonyms and nonsense words -- too many and the result can be cloying and unreadable. And if we also get a heavy lesson, well -- it's a risk. All of which makes Sarah Bee's "The Yes" the more remarkable for its wit and freshness. . . . Fun to read, this encouraging picture book will resonate with 3- to 6-year-olds -- and their families."
