This book is about a mischievous little boy, David, who is always getting into trouble and breaking things in his house. His parents reactions is always "No, David!" At the end of the book, David's mom sits him down and explains that even though he gets into trouble, she still loves him. ( )

I enjoyed this book because the text was very engaging. This book is about a boy named David who is very active and likes to get into things he is not suppose to such as reaching for the glass cookie jar on the shelf or running down the street naked. The book states, "David's mom always said, no." The big idea behind this book is that you should listen to your mom. ( )

About a child who breaks all the rules but in the end realizes that he should listen to his mother instead misbehaving

This book is about a boy named David who has a hard time staying out of trouble. David just keeps breaking the rules! Every page is essentially a picture of David breaking the rules and his mother telling him "No!" This would be a good book to use with a class where you stop reading every once in a while and talk about rules and what the importance of rules are. It could easily be connected to a classroom rules activity where students are recognizing that rules are for the safety of everybody.

David is told no during the things he's not supposed to do and yes during the right time.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590930028, Hardcover)

Parents will be quick to jump to the conclusion that there can be nothing appealing in a tale of an ugly kid who breaks things. And certainly--from that adult perspective--there's something off-putting about the illustrations of David, with his potato head, feral eyes, and a maniacal grin that exposes ferociously pointed teeth. But 3- and 4-year-olds see things differently, and will find his relentless badness both funny and liberating. "No, David," wails the off-stage mother, as David reaches for the cookie jar. "No! No! No!" as he makes a swamp out of the bathroom. "Come back here, David!" as he runs naked down the street. Each vivid double-page illustration is devoted to a different youthful indiscretion and a different vain parental plea. Readers will be amused to know that the protagonist's name is no accident: award-winning writer-illustrator David Shannon wrote the book after discovering a similar effort that he had made, again with himself at the center of each drawing, at the age of 5. (Ages 3 to 6) --Richard Farr
