"This book is all about having a positive outlook and provides a great lesson for kids and adults alike: Don't sweat the small stuff. Life will give you little obstacles, and sometimes, the best thing to do is just to say, "No Biggy!"--Brit + Co "A girl faces challenges throughout the day, but two little words prove to be aneffective coping tool. From the toothpaste falling off her toothbrush to a pageripping in her favorite book, there are lots of things that make Kikifrustrated. Instead of throwing a tantrum she says, "No biggy!" These wordshelp her to refocus. The self-calming strategy even helps Kiki's parents afterthe dog gets mud all over the house, and when her bubble bath creates a mess inthe bathroom. The richly colorful, pastel-themed cartoon art illustrations inmostly shades of pink and orange are humorous and will appeal to children.Young children will understand the characters' emotions, which are conveyed intheir facial expressions and change with their evolving moods. The first signs of frustration beginning are clear in Kiki's body language (arms crossed,shoulders hunched), which may help children identify these signals inthemselves. Certain words are oversized and in color; they pop off the page andreinforce Kiki's emotions when frustrated ("grunt," "huff and puff"), and aftersaying "No biggy!" ("makes me feel better," "really happy"). The story has a great message for children-and adults-to maintain perspective when things go wrong.VERDICT A solid choice that highlights a positive way to manage frustration. A good choice for one-on-one and small group ­sharing."--School Library Journal
