Oh, No!

  1. I have always been a storyteller Even before I could write my name, I could tell a good tale And I told them all the time As a preschooler, I told my neighbors all about my three legged cat named Spot In kindergarten, I told my classmates about the ghost that lived in my attic And in first grade I told my teacher, Miss Harbart, all about my family s trip to Paris, France.I told such a good story that people always thought I was telling the truth But I wasn t I didn t have a three legged cat or a ghost in my attic, and I d certainly never been to Paris, France I simply enjoyed telling a good story and seeing my listener s reaction.Sure, some people might have said I was a seven year old fibber But not my parents Instead of calling my stories fibs they called them imaginative They encouraged me to put my stories down on paper I did And amazingly, once I began writing, I couldn t stop I filled notebook after notebook with stories, poems, plays I still have many of those notebooks They re precious to me because they are a record of my writing life from elementary school on.In second grade, I discovered a passion for language I can still remember the day my teacher, Miss Johnson, held up a horn shaped basket filled with papier mache pumpkins and asked the class to repeat the word cornucopia I said it again and again, tasted the word on my lips I tested it on my ears That afternoon, I skipped all the way home from school chanting, Cornucopia Cornucopia From then on, I really began listening to words to the sounds they made, and the way they were used, and how they made me feel I longed to put them together in ways that were beautiful, and yet told a story.As I grew, I continued to write stories But I never really thought of becoming an author Instead, I went to college where I discovered yet another passion history I didn t realize it then, but studying history is really just an extension of my love of stories After all, some of the best stories are true ones tales of heroism and villainy made incredible by the fact they really happened.After graduation, I got married and had children I read to them a lot, and that s when I discovered the joy and music of children s books I simply couldn t get enough of them With my two sons in tow, I made endless trips to the library I read stacks of books I found myself begging, Just one , pleeeeease while my boys begged for lights out and sleep Then it struck me Why not write children s books It seemed the perfect way to combine all the things I loved stories, musical language, history, and reading I couldn t wait to get started.But writing children s books is harder than it looks For three years I wrote story after story I sent them to publisher after publisher And I received rejection letter after rejection letter Still, I didn t give up I kept trying until finally one of my stories was pulled from the slush pile and turned into a book My career as a children s author had begun.

  1. This is definitely a picture book suited for very young children, as the story is very simple and the language is sing songy, with many repetitive phrases and rhymes and very few surprises I think it d be a nice book to read aloud for story time, complete with prompts for high pitched sound effects by a valiant adult, though I m not sure it s one that is destined to become a perennial favorite I very much like the illustrations, however, particularly the sly tiger and the grumbly bear A nice li [...]

  2. Absolutely can not look through this book without wanting to read it out loud Compelling rhythm and rhyme patterns that are not too slavishly kept, which keeps the text feeling organic with a rich oral quality Rich vocabulary too, the less familiar animals the juicy sounds varied word choices sniffled, whopping, grumbled, groaned, slunk that aren t too much of a stretch for a younger listening audience And the way the last verse almost exactly echoes the first onece touch that helps hold the sto [...]

  3. Rohmann has tried a new palette, and his woodcut style outlines really work with this content This book has great rhythm, and poetic usage that makes it a great read aloud choice The rhythm reminds me of other great books that forego rhyme, but have a distinct cadence Owl Babies by Waddell Benson comes to mind The repeated chorus also reminded me of Charlotte Pomerantz James Marshall s Piggy in the Puddle even though this one rhymes The prosody choices for reading the two word oh no will be a fa [...]

  4. Oh, No is about a little frog that falls into a huge hole The hole happens to be right by where a tiger is sleeping The frog is too little to jump out, so he calls for help Different animals come along and try to help, but they end up falling in too The tiger wakes up and looks down the hole Instead of tiger seeing an opportunity to help the trapped animals out, he sees a nice, easy to catch meal He leaps in, hoping to get some dinner, but elephant comes along in the nick of time to save all of [...]

  5. Oh, No is a story about a group of animals who get themselves into a very sticky situation As they try to get out, the problem only gets worse A prowling tiger heightens their anxiety The illustrations in this book are colorful and the characters emotions show clearly on their faces This book is a suspenseful page turner with a cliff hanger ending and is excellent for children of many reading levels This would be a great book for a research project lesson Children will choose an animal from the [...]

  6. A tiger is hungry and looking for a tasty treat First he chases a frog into a deep hole, Oh, No he exclaims How is he to get out Animal after animal attempts to help, but one after another they follow behind, joining the previous into the deep, deep hole Meanwhile, Tiger lurks in jungle waiting to make his move and devour them all In the end, he himself winds up in the hole while the others get rescued by an elephant This is a cute story that young readers will love It teaches the importance of [...]

  7. I had looked forward to Oh, No for quite some time, ever since I had read tons of positive and starred reviews on it I definitely think I m in the minority on this, but I thought it was just ok I really did enjoy Caldecott winner Eric Rohmann s illustrations they were simple yet vibrant But the text left me wanting It s very repetitive, and not in a good way There s definitely a place for repetition in picture books it helps children to learn words and phrases But the phrases repeated are overly [...]

  8. One by one, several animals end up in a hole so deep that they cannot get out without help A frog, a mouse, a loris, a sun bear, and a monkey all try and fail to get out of that hole In the end, an elephant saves the day, rescuing them all from the hungry tiger who has been lurking nearby Young readers will love the wonderful animal sounds used throughout the book For instance, the tiger licks his teeth with a slop slurp Slop slurp unpaged Anyone reading this one aloud will also enjoy making tho [...]

  9. Oh, No, wrote by Candace Fleming I feel is a very good candidate for the 2013 Caldecott winner This vibrant book would be delightful for all young children The repetitive tone and also the amazing artwork within the book will draw children s attention This would be an astonishing read aloud for a younger classroom I really enjoyed how Fleming put sounds of each animal intertwined into the book, I feel as if children would find it funny and entertaining to hear there teach talk in such funny tone [...]

  10. KINDERGARTEN THEATER AHOY And the only problem with watching adorable children pretend to be a mouse and a sun bear and a slow loris and pretend to fall down a hole and then all call out Oh no would be not getting to see the excellent Eric Rohmann illustrations These are illustrations executed in a greeny earthtone palette, dappled with filtered sunlight and stroked with brushy highlights I like Eric Rohmann as much as the next sentient mammal which is to say a lot , but this is his best work so [...]

  11. As I read this, storytime ideas insisted on coming to mind This could be very fun Great illustrations to entertain the children as well as help them figure out what is happening in the story I think this will work well Can t wait to have the kids cry out Oh No every time 4 24 13 4 25 13 Good, but not as great as I imagined The groups kind of picked up on saying oh no with me, but not enthusiastically However, they did like looking for the tiger on the pages And in both groups I had children gues [...]

  12. Lush, vibrant, and strongly outlined characters help illustrate this fablesque story Children will love the many opportunities to assist each creature with their individual cries frog yells Ribbitoops as he falls into a large hole and then join in the chorus of Oh No as each one realizes their plight They will also take equal pleasure in the crafty tigers eventual cry of Oh No as the tables are turned This would pair nicely with Monkey A Trickster Tale from India for a nice jungle theme I can al [...]

  13. At first I was a bit annoyed by the repetitiveness and simplicity, especially perhaps after having read several really lovely picture books many of them over and over again with a 4 year old who s favorite books right now are Chloe and the Lion , Bee Wigged and Goldilocks and Just One Bear But there s a quiet sly wit, and the art is great and I ve always enjoyed folk tales I don t see this one becoming a favorite, but I m glad I got it out of the library.

  14. This is a fun book to read aloud The rhyming, rhythmic, and repetitive narrative is perfect for young audiences and the illustrations are comic and colorful The story lends itself nicely to a group read, where children will be ready to add an enthusiastic Oh, no at the right place We loved the different animals in this tale and hypothesized about the setting of the book Even though the level of this book is a bit young for our girls, we enjoyed reading it together.

  15. Oh, the illustration of the tiger clinging to the branch for dear life perfection The book is so beautifully designed, too, with just the perfect kind of paper to showcase Rohmann s illustrations And did you catch the jacket flap bleeding into the endpapers Clever, clever Fleming s language is wonderful to read aloud Just love the whole thing.

  16. The illustrations in this book are stunning, and take up the entire space on each page Chock full of onomatopoeia and action verbs, it s a fun story to read aloud Young readers will have to pay extra attention to the illustrations, as some parts of the story are explained only through the pictures.

  17. I m putting together a Tiger story time and this one looks like a good fit All of the animals fall into a big hole in the ground, while Tiger lurks in the background All of the animals are scared when Tiger looms over the pit with a hungry grin and offers to pull them out Thankfully, they re all saved by a big elephant, who incidentally knocks Tiger into the pit

  18. My second graders loved this book They loved the repeating lines and pictures They also pointed out the onomatopoeia and exclamation points We had just talked about exclamation points Great book and I love the surprise ending

  19. This reminded me of the opposite of Stuck by Oliver Jeffers One by one jungle animals fall in a hole, in danger of a hungry tiger pouncing upon them Fortunately, an elephant saves the day Kids will enjoy the animal sounds I will use this in our word play unit for onomatopeoia.

  20. A variety of animals fall into a hole that s too large to escape Familiar refrains, animal noises, and repetition make this a GREAT read aloud Illustrations are excellent and display each animal s distinctive markings in a soft way Must see read

  21. This book has nice pictures but the story is so wrong A tiger pit is used and then the tiger is left in it And we are suppose to feel good about that I don t think so I would not read this in any classroom.

  22. I can already picture my classes performing this choral style A cumulative tale of sorts, where the animals of the jungle fall down in a hole one after the other, as tricky tiger watches on.

  23. Oh No was hugely popular with my preschool storytime group The kids and caregivers had a blast shouting oh no along with the various animals Kids also had fun finding the hidden tiger in each illustration and identifying the animals that came along I paired this with a book called Where s My Mom by Julia Donaldson, and the kids loved pointing out different animals in that story as well for a great jungle theme storytime.Oh No tells of various animals who fall into a hole and can t get out while [...]

  24. Oh,No written by Candace Fleming and illustrated byEric Rohmann is a simple and fun story following many of the animals found in the jungle The rhythm and sounds found in this book make it fun and flowing to read its almost difficult not to read it aloud Although definitely aimed for a younger age group, the story is enjoyable for people of all ages The illustrations are bright and clear and no two pages are alike No wonder it won a Caldecott Medal The variety of animals from bears to frogs will [...]

  25. This has a fable like quality, wherein children learn from the animals, each embodying a particular mindset The tiger is the greedy, clever villain of the story and all of the other animals are outwitted by his clever trap, until one of their allies overcomes him It s a nice story The tiger falls victim to his own trap and the animals get away Simple language, pleasant illustrations, with good read aloud potential.
