The Lovereading4Kids comment

An empowering picture book which will encourage all young readers to be bolder and braver than they ever thought they could be. The Yes loves his soft and comfy home. But he has other places to go and other things to do. Gradually, the Yes builds up confidence and the enrichment of his life as he does so is brilliantly reflected in Satoshi Kitamura’s illustrations which move from emptiness reflecting loneliness to absolute fulfilment. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

The Yes by Sarah Bee

In a soft comfy nest in a safe warm place there snoozed a great big orange thing called the Yes. He was snug, but the Yes had a Where to go to. So he left his nest and went trundling out. But the Where was an endless place of Nos. They teemed and seethed. They picked and nipped, and snipped and snicked. The Yes yessed in all his goodness and bigness and yesness. But was he strong enough to overcome them?
