Publishers Description

The Caldecott Honor-winning classic by bestselling picture-book creator David Shannon

When David Shannon was five years old, he wrote and illustrated his first book. On every page were these words: NO, DAVID . . . and a picture of David doing things he was not supposed to do.
Now David is all grown up. But some things never change. . . .

Over fifteen years after its initial publication, NO, DAVID remains a perennial household favorite, delighting children, parents, and teachers alike. David is a beloved character, whose unabashed good humor, mischievous smile, and laughter-inducing antics underline the love parents have for their children--even when they misbehave.

Reviews - What do customers think about No, David!?

Fun, and sends the right messages  Jun 9, 2008
I was worried that this book would send the wrong messages (a book full of a kid misbehaving), but I trusted the other reviewers here, and they were right - this book sends the _right_ messages. Firstly, it lets your child feel both superior and empathetic - our child howls with gleeful recognition on each page of the 'no-nos' David is committing. Secondly, the fact that the child is scolded (not rewarded) for his mis-behavior, and that the book ends with love and a hug, reinforce parenting.
My Son's Absolute Favorite!!!  May 10, 2008
This is my three year olds absolute favorite book. We read it at least five times a week before bed. In this book, David manages to get himself into all sorts of trouble. Maybe that is why my son likes it so much, he can relate. David tries to get the cookie jar, tracks mud through the house, and breaks his mom's vase. These are things that anyone with children have experienced to some extent.

I really like the book because it gives me, as a parent, an opportunity to explain to my child why we don't do these things. It is in a cute and easy to understand format, so it holds a child's attention. Even though basically the only words in the book are No, David, my son and I make up stories and ask each other questions on every page. This way, it is different every time.

The pictures are fabulous. David Shannon illustrates like no one else. His bright colors and bold lines are just enough to draw attention without being distracting. I love his style. He adds just enough detail to the characters to show emotion. This is so great, especially when looking at the last page where the mother is telling David that she still loves him, no matter what. I feel like it is immensely important that a child know that you love them even when you are upset. They need to know that you love them completely unconditionally.
my daughter loves it!  Apr 9, 2008
It is a good children's book....the color is very strong and the words are also easy to understand. My sweetie loves this book!
My son LOVES the David books!  Mar 15, 2008
I originally just had 'David Gets In Trouble' and my son loved this! He cracked up at every page, and he could relate to it (he's almost 2). So I bought the rest of the Davis books, and they are just as cute. Not many words per page, but it's perfect for him.
What a fun book!  Feb 27, 2008
I am very surprised to see what people have to say in the "1 star" reviews of No David! My two and four year old little boys absolutely love this book! Both of my kids have it memorized and we read it together every day! I guess I can understand what people are saying about it being too negative, but I think it all depends on how you read it. Instead of reading it as though you are scolding David, try reading as though David is being silly. I really don't think that the author meant for people to be offended by the dialouge in this book. In my opinion most people will really enjoy reading this fun book with their kids!
