“The Yes” by Sarah Bee and Satoshi Kitamura is a hugely empowering story.
Published by Andersen Press, this is a clever and insightful reinforcement of self-belief, challenging inner doubt and fear head-on.
Meet the big, bounding, cheerful orange Yes, as it leaves the comfort of its nest.
Some argue that the philosophical nature of this book would perhaps be lost on a younger reader, but nevertheless it’s overarching message is a valid and clear one.
This, in our view should be explored by and introduced to a younger audience, validated by an adult for those under 5 years old.
The page layouts have a beautiful flow to them and the changing positioning of the text makes this a joy to read.
This is without doubt, a life-affirming story which astutely simplifies the complexity of its message with charm and style and for that reason we believe, it is great for younger children.
