Description

See below for English description.

Ninon est de retour! Saura-t-elle apprivoiser ses appréhensions face aux défis qui l'attendent à la rentrée scolaire?

Ce magnifique album illustré par Geneviève Côté, gagnante du prix du Gouverneur général, raconte l'histoire de Ninon, une charmante petite fille, aux prises avec les angoisses suscitées par la rentrée scolaire. Ninon s'inquiète : Saura-t-elle se faire des amis? Comment se déroulera la première journée d'école? Elle se soucie même du réchauffement planétaire... Lorsque la journée tant redoutée arrive, Ninon se trouve une nouvelle amie et ses peurs fondent comme neige au soleil.

Un album sur les pouvoirs de l'amitié, le sentiment d'appartenance et l'angoisse chez les jeunes.

 

In the sequel to the much loved Noni Says No (Ninon dit non), Ninon returns to learn a new lesson - how to conquer her many worries in time for the first day of school - with delightful illustrations by the Governor General's Award-winning artist Geneviève Côté.

Ninon is nervous about playdates, and global warming, and most of all, about the first day of school. Her parents are worried too, and even her brother is a little wary. But Ninon finds a friend, someone more outgoing than herself, and discovers that through friendship, she can belong and succeed in a world that once filled her with dread. The story is a universal one about the power of friendship and belonging.

Original Title: Noni is Nervous

Dans les médias Ninon dit non

« Magnifiquement illustré par Geneviève Côté (Sans toi!, Comme toi!), cet histoire sera un bon élément déclencheur pour parler avec votre enfant de l'affirmation de soi et de l'importance d'apprendre à dire non. » ~ Mélanie Dorion, Familles d'aujourd'hui, 4 novembre 2011



Praise forNoni says No

 

"This book could generate good discussion about standing up for one's self and handling difficult relationships, including ways to establish and maintain friendships when everyone involved has a chance to react honestly and without fear." ~ School Library Journal

 

"A fine book that explores early friendships from a new angle. . . Young readers trying to figure out the challenges of friendship and teachers trying to shore up. The timid will find a new Noni herself." ~ Kirkus Reviews
