No, David! Reviewb
CALDECOTT: I did not like the book, No, David!. It seemed like the whole book was just reading about David¿s mom screaming at him. It is about this boy that is constantly getting into trouble. It was not very entertaining and I do not think children will like it. David Shannon is the author and illustrator of many highly praised books for children. Born in Washington, D.C., he grew up in Spokane, Washington. He graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, with a fine arts degree, and then moved to New York City. His editorial illustrations have appeared in The New York Times, Time, and Rolling Stone, and his artwork has appeared on numerous book jackets. Shannon is a passionate baseball fan and softball player. He and his wife now live in Los Angeles. No, David!, book is about a little boy that is constantly getting into trouble. His mom is always yelling at him for something he is doing or needs to do. He gets in trouble for trying to get into the cookie jar and tracking mud through the house, just to name a few. Finally, at the end of the book his mother tells him yes on something, that she loves him. ¿DAVID! BE QUIET!¿ This is a part of the book were David is getting yelled at for being too loud by his mother. ¿Davey, come here. Yes, David¿ I love you!¿. This is the only part of the book were David¿s mother is not yelling at him. She actually shows she cares about him and gives him some affection. Shannon, David. No, David!. New York: The Blue Sky Press, 1998. Grade Level: KindergartenWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
