A Thousand No's Winner of the Eric Hoffer Award for Best Children's Book!
A few comments from various award judges: "This was a simple but lovely story that has a big and impactful message. The writing seems to resonate and get "louder" as the main character encounters each "No!" The story is engaging and makes the reader want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen and how the main character is going to deal with all the "Nos" that she receives. The simple cover design and large bold title is effective in piqueing a child's interest. The content and writing style is age appropriate. The story has a strong beginning, middle, and end. No suggestions for improvement. Rank: 1" "This book will have meaning and interest for adults and could be used for in-depth discussion with older children and teens. The mechanics appear to be correct. The story flows well and is allowed to move quickly through the addition of no’s to a thousand without getting bogged down in the repetition. The title is perfect. The illustration style matches the allegorical style of the tale and is a good match to the subject. Much like the Dr. Seuss Oh, the Places You’ll Go and Shel Silverstein’s Where the Sidewalk Ends or The Giving Tree, this is a deceivingly simple tale that is meant for and will be appreciated by adults..." "It is unique and the simple cover image invokes curiosity and the urge to open the book to explore. And the simple text is easy to read and the images attractive. A well done book and a great addition to any child's book collection." #childrensbooks #childrensauthor #childrensillustration #kidsdrawing #athousandnos #hofferaward #ibpa #independentpublishing #kidsbooks #picturebook #clcawards #literaryclassics #djcorchin
