FYI - when I ordered this book about David, I also purchased the books "Ruthie and the (not so) teeny tiny lie" (by Laura Rankin) and "The Empty Pot" (by Demi). The book about Ruthie is very cute, and it shows the parents and Ruthie talking about how she should apologize. The Empty Pot is very good at teaching kids not to lie. I would highly recommend either of those books. They are head-and-shoulders better than the book about David.
The book is an easy enough read, that after reading only a few times, my son can flip the pages and can essentially recite the book, which I loved since he is only 2.
It quickly became a favorite in the house, alongside the other David Shannon books, and is being read at least once a week.
Ok so David. Yes David is a horrible kid and we all have had a David in our life and like most parents I wasn't quite sure why you would give this to your child. Until I realized David is a perfect example of what not to do. David is not perfect or a stellar student but it's OK because David is still a person and we need to help him learn how to be a good little person.I personally believe it's a good way to teach write from wrong.
David Shannon, if you need some material for your "young adult" novels about David as a teenager, contact me. I have a lot of great material. My David never failed to supply adventure and drama to life.
When I read these books with my little one, he quickly memorized the dialogue and couldn't wait to turn the pages, so he could laugh at David's antics and tell him to stop. I would also use the opportunity to ask, "What is David DOING?!?!" so that he could vocalize the naughty behaviors (carrying too much stuff, teasing the cat, etc....) I read a couple of reviews that complained that these books set a bad example, but I think those people honestly missed a teaching moment or two. And I think the art is awesome, not the least bit scary!! These will be classics for years to come.

We first read about David in David Shannon's award winning book "No David" roughly 5 years ago. This book was so well loved I just had to get the next one "David Get's in Trouble". The first book has a monologue by David's Mother which primarily consists of the word "No" with a few variations. This book tells David's side of the story, but once again David is in trouble from the word go --- or should I say no?
This book begins with a crude childlike drawing of David with small eyes, sharp teeth and a halo over head and text telling us what David says when he gets in trouble. Now David is really not a bad a child, at least not in my opinion - but trouble is his constant companion. It all begins with a quick trip on his skateboard across the front room - and naturally a few accidents along the way. Most of David's trouble is accidental - or just forgetfulness - he even forgets to put his trousers on before school one day. The one truly naughty event is when he pulls the poor cats tail saying "But she likes it"! The illustration makes quite clear that the cat most certainly does not enjoy this treatment, and I made a point of telling my children - we don't really pull animals tails because it would hurt them. But for the most part the book shows the types of problems most children get into - making messes, saying bad words, and not wanting to eat what Mom has cooked for tea.
The text is also very simple. except for the first page - which has two lines each page has only one very simple sentence written in large black crayon letters. My children have both had this memorised by the age of two and can point out the words as they "read" the book along with me. Of course the oldest really can read it now, but this book was great book to get them starting with reading. I think this book is perfect to encourage young children to start reading. Best of all though, this book will convince any child that reading is fun. It's the perfect book to encourage the most reluctant reader, or just to share with your little one at story time.
I recommend this for ages 1 -7.
