"The Worst Day of My Life EVER!" on RJ has had a rough day! He wakes up with gum stuck in his hair, misses recess because he is late to school and gets caught running in the hall, earns a zero on his math homework, kicks the ball into his own team's soccer goal, and messes up his mom's kitchen with his overflowing pancake batter! K-6 readers learn the rhyming steps to the skills of listening and following instructions that can turn bad days into great ones!

I Just Don't Like the Sound of NO! on "N" is RJ's least favorite word and he tries to convince his dad, his mom and his teacher to turn "No" into "Maybe," "We'll see," "Later," or "I'll think about it." When RJ learns how to disagree the right way, and accept "No" for answer, he turns into a "Say Yes To NO Expert!" Finally, a book that teaches children why and how to accept "No" for an answer. Tips for teachers and parents are included.
