The NO Book

NO! It’s a word that is both highly overused and underused in today’s society, especially when it comes to caring for and teaching young children. Beneath that two-letter word lies so much more. In her enlightening children’s book, “No!” author Barb Meidl hopes to convey a deeper lesson about how the word fits into a child’s development and perception.

This book is part of Barb’s vision and hope for honest interaction and understanding, for all ages, as children begin to comprehend and learn to react to the people and the world around them. It is a social-emotional storybook with a powerful message for both children and adults.


Please listen to me, is all I need.
To let you kNOw, I’m learning my needs.
Believe it or NOt, one day you’ll be proud
That NO is a word I shouted out loud!


“No!” is best used as a “read to” book that can bring up meaningful enlightenment for a child who may otherwise simply sit and ponder. The questions this book sparks are best explored within conversations between children and the adults who care for them.
