Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—An unnamed boy cheerfully explains his favorite day of the year—Yes Day—as he makes his way through it. He tells readers to watch and see as his every request is granted—pizza for breakfast, hair gel, an ice-cream cone, a food fight, a dinner guest—all that and more. Lichtenheld's bright and funny cartoons bring the story to life, with character expressions that are right on the mark. Endpapers show a calendar filled with familiar and amusing ways to say "no" that are heard on a daily basis, with the exception, of course, on Yes Day. Children will find Rosenthal and Lichtenheld's third collaboration irresistible. Yes!—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH

From Booklist

The word no is ubiquitous in kids’ lives. Rosenthal imagines what it would be like if for just one day adults said yes to everything children asked. The young protagonist poses a series of questions, which are answered in humorous illustrations. “Can I use your hair gel?” the child asks. A flip of the page shows the family posing for a photo with the kid’s hair in spiky triangles. The exuberant cartoon drawings take the child through the day, from pizza for breakfast to picking out junk food at the store to staying up really late. Young readers will pick up on a street sign declaring “No saying no.” The highlight of the book comes from the somber blue endpapers, which feature a monthly calendar that names a litany of days including No Way, Jose Day; Don’t Even Ask Day; and Ixnay Ayday (for pig-latinophiles). Sophisticated and clever, the calendar has a splash of yellow on the last day that proclaims “Yes Day!” Preschool-Grade 1. --Patricia Austin

1.0 out of 5 stars Book displays racism - image attached
By Sun Y on October 7, 2020
Entertaining book about the parents saying “yes” to all of the requests the parents would normally wouldn’t agree to, until the part where the boy asks the dad if he could invite his Hispanic friend, Mario, over for dinner. If inviting a friend over was an ask that parents would normally say “no” to, then I wouldn’t think this way. I can’t help but to think the authors of this book are racist.
