The message I remember from it was not that acting out will get you attention. Nora's parents yelled at her for the noise she made.
The message is that your parents love you no matter what, and are willing to forgive bad temper because of that love.
This is a good book for children. The message is lovely, and told in an amusing way.
Bottom line: yes, this book features a child acting out for attention. However, Nora's parents ignore her until she stops her bad behavior. Yes, this book uses the word dumb. But any child will hear much worse words from television and other media sources.
"Noisy Nora" is a wonderful book that will instill a love of reading in any child.
This version of "Noisy Nora" features all-new illustrations, updating from the original 1973 version. The illustrations go well with the story and add a lot of life. Rosemary Well's very first book is an interesting story that just about anyone can relate to at times.
Yes, this book uses the DREADED word "dumb" in it several times. Maybe it's a great opportunity to address why name calling isn't nice, without your child doing it, or experiencing it first hand. Or, maybe we all need to take a chill pill and get slightly thicker hides and teach our children that if their big sister calls them "dumb" their fragile little worlds don't need to come shattering down around them.
My sister and I both loved this book when we were little. And I'm quite positive we both called each other "dumb" lots of times throughout childhood. Needless to say, we always were, and still are the very best of friends. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Lets quit making future generations of over-sensitive sissy's and embrace a great little story that is fun to read, cute, and harmless.
