‘NO’ is Rico’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, Rico keeps arguing until his teacher suggests that he try to join her classroom’s Say YES to NO Club. If Rico 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. Rico finds that lots of praise and some rewards come his way when he uses these skills the right way!
