To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My 4 year old son loves these books and he likes to talk about the things David did wrong that got him into trouble. My only criticism would be the page where the teacher says (you need to use the restroom) "Again??" Kids at the young end of this book's suggested age range shouldn't feel worried about asking their teacher to go to the restroom any time they need it. I always tell my son that when we reach this page. Other than that, we love reading these books... again and again.
1.0 out of 5 starsDon't read to toddlers or young children.

Doesn't set a good example. Could confuse children. All the photos are of David doing bad/naughty things. Seems like a bad example for my child. Why would I show my child how to destroy, hit or wreak things.
My three year old LOVES the book 'No David.' He is about to start preschool in two weeks, so when I saw this book I had to get it for him. He really likes this one as well, but I have to say that it's not quite as good as the first. I'm still glad that we got it, though!
For those of you with children, grandchildren or nieces and nephews who are preparing to enter school, this is good first line reader with the foundations of basic words that come easily and are quickly recognized by a young reader.
One of the last books we picked up on our trip to the library was this book. I refused to grab any more
cat books and my son was stumped on what to pick. So seeing the interesting looking cover I scooped it up.
David Goes to School tells the story of one school day. David has a problem following the rules and constantly hears "No, David".
Alright so this was light on content. There wasn't much plot. Just David causing a lot of trouble. What I found funny about it is that it reminded me of my son so much. They were all things I could see my son doing. Not because he means to be bad. Just because he doesn't fully realize that doing those things are bad.
The best part of this book was the drawings and the font. It was written to look like a kid writing on lined paper. BRILLIANT! I thought that was just the greatest idea ever. It might have been done in other books but in this book it works and really couldn't be done in normal every day font. Nope having it be apart of the pictures and look like it is written on paper just works with this story.
Because of how simple this book was it was over after only 2 minutes of reading. So my so did well with it. Though he swore he was nothing like David.
4 out or 5 stars
**This book was read with my special needs son who is severely learning disabled. The review reflects not only my opinion but his as well
Like it or not, this book is realistic. Children, "good or bad" can relate to this book. There is a David (boy or girl) in every school. For parents who receive calls at home that their little one is acting up once again, this book is a relief that they're not alone. In the real world, no young child is perfect like some adults want them to be, and just because they act out or don't listen at school doesn't necessarily mean they're a brat. David is obviously young and is simply learning about the world on his own without his parents holding his hand in the "big boy" setting of school. For the poor reviews of this book, I ask: Can't children just be children? Why take this book so seriously? I'm a mother of two sons. I think I might know what I'm talking about.
