The book is fun and hilarious for children to listen to because it probably very closely resembles what they might do and what their parents might say.

This is a great book for young elementary students or preschool aged students. David constantly does things that he gets in trouble for, and his mom always tells him no! However, at the end of the day his mother still loves him. ( )

This book is one that I think everyone with a little brother or son can relate to! the book has repetition through out it because David is being bad and they keep saying "No!" to him. but even though he is being a little stinker, his mom still loves him. ( )

Very good book for young kids as it details a little five year old kid who is always breaking his mother's rules. Some of the things he does to break the rules are chewing with his mouth open, and jumping on the furniture. ( )

This is another book that i can remember that i read in my childhood and it was read in the classroom. This is something i would use in my own classroom because it instills good behavior and discipline.

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
