No Thanks, but I'd Love to Dance

Choosing to Live Smoke Free

Written by Jackie Reimer

At last! A book that encourages children to live smoke free! This book encourages young children to make a healthy choice and not smoke. Whimsically illustrated, the book chronicles the life of Belle, who at six years old, was "best friends forever" with her Grandma Bee, who after years of smoking could no longer do the one thing they both liked best--to dance. Grandma Bee tells Belle how, when she was a young girl, a boy had offered her a cigarette at a school dance. She had said yes and become addicted. She teaches Belle the importance of not smoking.
