    Nora isn't getting any attention because her little brother is taking up all her mom's time and her older sister is taking up all her dad's time. She tries to get some attention by making a very loud mess, but everyone continues to tune her out and so she hides silently. That finally gets attention- for a moment at least.

    With her parents busy caring for her older sister and baby brother, Nora makes as loud a ruckus as she can to get their attention.This is a delightfully sly rhyme is drolly illustrated by the author.

    Noisy Nora is about a little girl who happens to be the middle child in her family. Her sister is older and "cooler" than her, and she has a baby brother who soaks up all of her parents attention. To try to gain back her parents attention, and not be forgotten about, Nora gets into all kinds of trouble and makes all kinds of noise to make people look at her. She knocks things over, she breaks things, and each time her sister yells at her and her mother discusses how that is disturbing her baby brother. So, Nora decides that it is time for her to leave, because clearly no one is interested in her. Nora leaves her home and goes away for a short time. With all of the quiet in the house, her sister begins to wonder where she could be, and her parents start to worry. They look everywhere for her, but she's no where to be found...until Nora pops through the front door and surprises them! Everyone is happy that Nora is home, even though she can be quite noisy.

    Noisy Nora is about a young mouse that feels left out and wants more attention. I like this book because it shows that even if you are not getting a lot of attention at that moment that you are still loved by your parents and siblings and would use it in my classroom as a lesson on how to handle our behaviors and not cause trouble. This book is suitable for 1st and 2nd grade.

    Noisy Nora perfectly portrays what life is like as the middle child in a family. Nora's parents are constantly paying attention to her younger brother and older sister. In her eyes, they always ignore her. The only way she can get their attention is to make a lot of noise by slamming, banging, dropping, and breaking things around the house. I like this book for a few reasons. First, the illustrations definitely enhance the story and engage the reader. Next, the language and writing is not overwhelming. There are only a few words per page which makes it easy for younger elementary grades to read and understand. Finally, the plot is enjoyable and can create great classroom discussions about how it feels to be the middle child, etc. The "big idea" of this book is that even if Nora's parents pay attention to her younger and older siblings, does not mean they will not pay attention to her and it does not mean they do not love her! Making noise and breaking things is not a good way to get attention. This is a great book to read with young students that have younger siblings, because it teaches them that even though their siblings may require more attention, it does not mean their parents forgot about them! I think this book would be great to read with students that already have younger siblings, or that will have younger siblings in the future.

    The first thing that this book made me think of was how the middle child must feel. Basically, the book narrates different scenarios where the youngest child demands attention from one parent, the other parent is doing something with the older sibling and Noisy Nora dose something naughty/mischief/trouble.

    Being a middle child I found Noisy Nora perfectly portrayed what life is like as the middle child in a family. This story was lighthearted and easy to laugh at. The first thing that I liked about this story was that the author only wrote one sentence per page. I found this to be great for new readers, so the number of words does not overwhelm them and also it is easy to follow the words with a finger or pointer. The second thing I liked about this story was how well the pictures connected to each sentence. This is great for new readers, if they do not understand a word to look at the picture and make a connection. The illustrations definitely enhance the story and engage the reader. Finally, the plot is enjoyable and can guide great classroom discussions about how it feels to be the middle child, or even if the students have done some of the noisy things Nora did throughout the story. The "big idea" of this book is that even if Nora's parents pay attention to her younger and older siblings, it does not mean they do not love her! I also liked that the story emphasized that making noise and breaking things is not a good way to get attention.

    I thought this book was great. It is the perfect book for middle siblings, which was the main idea of the story. Nora was feeling neglected from her parents. Her older sister was always with their dad and her baby brother was always with her mom. Therefore Nora would always end up making noise and a mess to get their attention. The illustrations were one of my favorite aspects of the story. The climax of the story is when Nora decides to run away from home. The illustrator shows us Nora walking out of the door. To my surprise as the reader; the door had led to a closet instead of outside. This use of illustration was a great way to trick the reader. I also really like the message this book sends about middle children. This gives you the perspective of how a middle sibling may or may not feel from time to time. I found it to be very realistic when it comes to this in real families. I really loved this book and plan on sharing it to everyone I know. Especially my friends with multiple children!

    "Jack had dinner early, Father played with Kate, Jack needed burping, so Nora had to wait. First she banged the window, Then she slammed the door, Then she dropped her sister's marbles on the kitchen floor." And so begins this amusing tale, told with a rollicking rhythm and rhyme, of a middle child who begins to feel a bit neglected, as her mother concentrates on her baby brother, and her father on her older sister, and who decides that the best way to get attention is to make a lot of noise. Nothing she does seems to work, however, until 'Noisy Nora' decides to try something a little different: silence...Originally published in 1973, with simple artwork in two or three colors, and then reprinted in this 1997 edition, with new, all-color illustrations, Noisy Nora is an immensely engaging, thoroughly readable picture-book, one that would make a fabulous story-hour selection! Middle children will identify with Nora's feeling of neglect - as will most children, really - and sympathize with her determined efforts to gain attention. The ending, in which her family is revealed to be very aware of her after all, is both amusing and reassuring. Thanks, Miriam, for pointing me toward this one!

    This is a very relatable book for children who have siblings and sometimes feel left out, or that they are not getting enough attention. This book shows in the end how much Nora's family does care for her and that could make the child who is reading this book feel really good. This book also uses a lot of rhyme which will keep a child's interest in this book.

    Noisy Nora is a fun book with a lot of rhyming and an easy pattern that students can expect. Students could act out some of the text from the book

    This is a book about Nora who is feeling neglected by her busy parents and she begins doing things to try and attract attention to herself and she goes away and hides and when her parents start to worry and look for her she bursts out of a closet. This is a good book for children to help you read because it has the phrase "Nora! Why are you so dumb?," repeated a lot.

    ISBN 0803718357 - It's been a while since I've reviewed a kids' book that needed a note for certain parents with certain child-raising ideas. If you're one of them, you'll want to pass up this book - Nora's sister calls her "dumb" twice and Nora's behavior is... well, bad. If, however, you're able to overlook that, or just don't care about it, and want to get your child into books, this is one that I guarantee they'll love to have read to them.Nora's parents are spending all of their time with Jack, the baby, and their sister Kate. Nora feels neglected and makes noise, hoping to get their attention, but all she gets is shushed. She finally does get it - by announcing that she's leaving! They worry and look for her until she reappears again, quite noisily.Other than the "dumb" comments, some parents might find Nora's behavior bad enough to keep them from getting this book for their child. She slams the door, knocks over the lamp and flies a kite in the house. Personally, she's a mouse, I never expected my child to take his behavioral cues from rodents and he didn't; if you think yours might, then you need to find another book. Those exceptions out of the way, I think this book is adorable. If, at first glance, you think Nora resembles Max, she should - they have the same mother. Author and illustrator Rosemary Wells, mom of Max and Ruby and Nora, seems to understand what will work for children and laughing, something Nora will make them do, is a surefire way to get them to come back again and again. The illustrations are great, Nora is just hilarious in her frustrated efforts to get attention and there's the chance for a parent to talk to their own child about the RIGHT way to get attention - once everyone's stopped laughing at Nora. Parents with a new baby in the house might find that aspect particularly appealing because a new baby's arrival is certainly a time when an older sibling might feel ignored. - AnnaLovesBooks

    Decent rhyme about middle sibling jealousy. Better than average for its sense of humour and lack of a sappy moral lesson.

    Nora always has to wait. Baby brother Jack needs constant care. Older sister Kate gets to do all the fun things. Parents have no time to pay attention to her. Nora can’t stand for it and engages in a series of noisy. In the end, she runs away to a closet, causing her family to come looking for her.Children who have siblings will like the story and the lovely pictures of the mice family. For parents, we should realize Nora’s situation and pay more attention to a middle child. Meanwhile, we should tell children that Nora’s behaviour isn’t a positive way to attract parents’ attention and discuss with them what a good behaviour is.
