Grow Up, David
With millions of copies in print and four sequels, No, David! hit the ground running in 1998 and was a Caldecott Honor Book, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book, and a classic for 20 years. Based on a book the author wrote and illustrated when he was five, David captures the timeless no-no's familiar to every child. Grow Up, David! is nothing short of exhilarating.
While siblings fight, the end of this story also reminds us the good thing about having a sibling. They're there to help teach you the ways of life, like playing ball. I love having my brother and this reminded me of the memories with him.
David Shannon does it again. He has his signature theme with our favorite character David and the silly illustrations. I love the humor in these stories but how they also touch our hearts.
Final Verdict: GROW UP, DAVID is the perfect story for siblings to read together. It's all about sibling rivalry, arguing, and love.
