He loves this book and will act out the parts while I read it for the 27th time that day. Sometimes he lets me take bathroom breaks, eat, or watch a show, but his demand for this book to be read is so high that he forgets that I have basic needs.
When I cry at night, I have visions of this book and the little boy, David, laughing at me. Reminding me with his weird toothy grin that tomorrow is a new day... a new day to read this book. Again.
.... and again....
But! Whatever makes him happy. Moments like this, reading to him, will forever be etched into my mind. My son and I love this book.
This was one purchase that David asked for and mommy? She didn't say No. <3
My 2-year-old LOVES this book. I don't see the appeal, as it contains about 20 words total that are some variant of "No, David!" but my son loves it so much that it deserves 5 stars. The other day, I caught him "reading" the entire book to himself, and at the end, when he read, "Yes, David. I love you," he blew himself two kisses. So adorable. Pictures are very rich and well done.

This would be a great gift; or even a great lesson book. If you’re struggling with correction of behaviors, this can be a great book to make a learning/ teaching opportunity out of.
There was definitely something in it that spoke to my youngest child. When my youngest was two and a half, he would sit in my lap to allow me to read No, David! to him -- would go find the book and give it to me to read to him --and pointed out all the details in the pictures with me. He still finds this book hilarious, and he's five years old. If you want quiet time with your rambunctious child, offer him this book. Allow your child the opportunity to read about a little boy who also has trouble behaving like Mommy wants him to.
But does this book encourage misbehavior in toddlers? Does it Give Them Ideas? Does this subversive book give toddlers ideas about new ways to rebel against parents? Is this book visual proof of bad parenting? Such concerns presuppose that toddlers misbehave on purpose. In fact, the world is a frustrating place for toddlers, who crave and fear independence from mommy, and have the same wants we do without a lot of the physical competence we have, and who are only just learning impulse control. This book empathizes with these impulses, but does not encourage them.
The illustrations portray the consequences of childish misbehavior in a way that toddlers can hear it, and the humor in the book is exactly the ultraviolet brand that parents of toddlers -- and their toddlers -- need. This book strengthened my relationship with my challenging child, and I can frequently invoke portions of the book when my child misbehaves and the resulting hilarity defuses a situation and redirects the behavior.
It is an enjoyable, hilarious book by a delightful author.
