New Book and Mom's Choice Awards(R) Gold Recipient Teaches Parents and Children the Value of the Word "NO"

DALLAS, TEXAS, March 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The impact of the word "NO" can leave a lasting impression on children. This is something that Nancy Ennis' colorful children's story, When Mommy and Daddy Say NO, They Still Love You (Brown Books Kids), clearly illustrates by teaching parents and children the importance of the word "NO" in setting healthy boundaries. Named among the best in family-friendly media, products and services by Mom's Choice Awards®, the book's lively illustrations invite readers to step inside the home of one family as they tackle scenarios that involve the word "No."

Ennis gives parents and children a fresh approach to a word commonly used in statements of defiance and rejection. Instead, through powerful and relatable scenarios, she transforms "NO" into a word of love and protection. When Mommy and Daddy Say NO, They Still Love You was written to help children discover that "No" isn't always a bad thing.

Beautifully illustrated by Cynthia Meadows, a native Texan, the characters fly off the page through vivid, bright and humorous illustrations. The book is a must-read for parents with young children who hope to raise their children to be responsible, healthy and courteous individuals.

Nancy Ennis is the owner of Tot Town Child Development Center, Inc., where she has worked for the past 32 years. Inspired by the families she has met at Tot Town over the years, When Mommy and Daddy Say NO, They Still Love You is a story with a powerful message of love and understanding. Ennis hopes that her book will give parents the reassurance they need to say no and the understanding they need to recognize the role our world plays in the development and security of a child. Ennis currently resides in California.
