“Yow!“ At the end the two kids become friends.

This is more of a fun read and probably not used to read out loud, but for kids to read on their own.

Caldecott Honor Book. This was a wonderfully written book about two people that meet each other and become friends. This book is a very fast paced easy read. The illustrations are simple, but having plenty of meaning behind them.

I liked this part when they are saying they can be friends with each other! It‘s cool you can use body language and facial expressions to tell your feelings.

This book was very cute and simple to read. It told a story with every small usage of words which I thought was awesome.

Yo! Yes by Christopher Raschka was published in 1993. The reader finds themselves discovering a big and important message of friendship and empathy in such a simplistic way. While the story is short in words, it makes up for in a big way in the important lesson it teaches to kids. I also loved the illustrations and how you could feel the emotions of the children.

This book made me sad a little bit, but while continuing on it made me happy. Such a good message portrayed in minimal words.

Yo! Yes? Was written by Chris Raschka in 1994 and is a Caldecott Honor book. This book has very few words, but portrays a strong message. The message that anyone can be friends if you are nice and try. This book also features an African American character which I find to be awesome since it was written in 1994. I love the diversity of this book and how it easily shows kids that no matter who you are or what you look like you can have friends.

Caldecott and was written in 1993. This is book is a picture book with a few words, but really sends a message behind such few words. The two boys in the book talk to other and the black boy wants to be friends with the other boy because he doesnt have any friends. At the end, they become friends and jump with joy.

Genre: Caldecott
Although this book does not include many words, the pictures do a great a great job of portraying the meaning. It‘s short and sweet, but so meaningful at the same time.

I liked how “no friends” was in red. The only red words in the book, too.

This book is super cute. It has only one or two words on the page, and tells the story of two people becoming friends. I love how the Yes? becomes Yes! at the end. The illustrations are really awesome and almost look like watercolor cartoons

I think this is a really fun book that the children can learn the words to it and have a lot of fun participating with it!
