Not easy to do but very important: who dares to say 'no’? Marie is really frightened of the gruesome green crocodile underneath her bed. But then she says 'no’ in a big, loud voice and the crocodile disappears all by himself. Tim actually likes his Aunt Ulla a lot, but he hates her revoltingly sticky lipstick kisses. The next time she comes to visit, he at last plucks up the courage to tell her so – and she isn’t even cross! Nine read-aloud stories about different occasions, drawing the line – there’s a story for every child here. Eight stories about saying 'no' – also ideal for nursery schools. With a prologue by Dr Anne Bischoff, whose field is children’s and young people’s psychiatry. | 3 +
