In I Can Say No, Jenny Simmons teaches children the power of the word no. Whether it's saying no to bullying or someone invading their personal space or simply to playing with a friend when they need some alone time, children learn that they can use their voice to stand up for what is good in the world, and good for themselves.
I learned a little word,
And even though it's small,
When I use it with authority,
I'm the strongest of them all!
That's right. I can say NO.
I can say no to a movie I don't like.
I can say no if I'm not into riding bikes.
I can say no if I want to be alone,
Or I'm feeling kind of tired and would rather stay at home.
