When author and artist David Shannon was five years old, he wrote a semi-autobiographical story of a little kid who broke all his mother's rules. He chewed with his mouth open (and full of food), he jumped on the furniture, and he broke his mother's vase! As a result, all David ever heard his mother say was "No, David!" Here is his story.

In NO, DAVID, David is always being corrected. Whether it's for tracking in mud or playing baseball in the house, it seems his mom is just always saying no. But in the end, he understands that his mom loves him and probably gives the best hugs.

I like how this story brings comedy into a topic that all kids think about. The pictures have a laugh-out-loud reaction, even though the mom is saying no. Parents have to say no sometimes, but the most important thing is the love they share.

I remember reading this book as a child and I'm so thrilled to be sharing it with my daughter. We laughed together and she had fun pointing out the pictures. I also love the board book format. NO, DAVID is a funny book that has stuck with me all these years.


Final Verdict: This is a good book for parents to read with their children. It's also perfect for fans of humor.

I remember getting this from the library when I was a child and sharing it with my cousin and we both giggled like the little girls we were. We thought nothing was funnier than a little boy running down the street naked!
Then, I remember making my brother read it when he was a little older and I compared him to David so much.

It's a cute read that I think maybe all kids should read, at least once.
Although David was a little turd, he was lovable.
