Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A light-hearted companion to the Caldecott Honor Book No, David! David's activities in school include chewing gum, talking out of turn, and engaging in a food fight, causing his teacher to say over and over, "No, David!"

Review:

"The exaggerated shapes and slightly cartoonish poses of an array of students in all-too-familiar situations will have youngsters crowding together over the book at recess." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The wonderfully wacky illustrations are drawn from a young child's visual point of view, too. The pages are filled with high-energy lines and eye-popping color. Teachers, parents and kids will all enjoy renewing their friendship with spiky-haired David in his latest adventure." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

David's teacher has her hands full. From running in the halls to chewing gum in class, David's high-energy antics fill each school day with trouble-and are sure to bring a smile to even the best-bahaved reader.

David is one of my favorite book characters of all time! I love of all of David Shannon's books and as a teacher "David Goes to School" is one of best. David Shannon's illustrations look like a child drew them and the font also looks hand written. The color and details make the pictures fun to look at and it quickly becomes a read it again and again book. It is so fun for children to see someone doing all of the wrong things and it opens for discussion of what is the right way to act at school. It is always one of the books I read to my students during the first weeks of school.

This is a very funny book. You can read it and improvise a bit and kids like to play along. Even if your child hasn't been to school, most likely, they'll get a kick out of the mischief David manages to get into. The illustrations are large, simple and are also funny. Great for gifts for all ages up to about seven.
