Overview


"When David gets in trouble, he always says . . . 'NO! It's not my fault! I didn't mean to! It was an accident!'" Whatever the situation, David's got a good excuse. And no matter what he's done "wrong," it's never really his fault.



Soon, though, David realizes that making excuses makes him feel bad, and saying he's sorry makes him feel better. Once again, David Shannon entertains us with young David's mischievous antics and a lighthearted story that's sure to leave kids (and parents) laughing.

My 2 1/2 y/o daughter loves it so much! We have read this so many times already that she now insists on "reading" the book to me at night. And she accurately describes what is going on in the pictures. This book is so adorable.

This is a great book for a child of any age and for any parent- we have all "been there".The art is fun!

David is a big troublemaker at his house. He gets into some funny mischief. I would recommend this book to children ages three to five.

My favorite part was the end when he tells his mother he loves her. This to me shows unconditional love on both parts.

I think the No, David! books are precious. The lack of words, and brilliant illustrations make you laugh and it completely takes me back through my childhood as you see David misbehaving in such ways as spilling his juice and forgetting to wear his pants to school. I read this aloud to my second grade students and they loved it! What a likeable character and such a creative way of entertaining children through print.

This book is about David and how every time he gets in trouble he makes an excuse for himself. I loved this book. The illustrations are so fun and colorful and the writing style is fun. This is a great book to teach kids about appropriate versus inappropriate behavior. I would love to read this to my kinders and talk about behavior expectations.

Good book for student who feel like they always get in trouble. Enjoyed the wit. Would like to share this book with students who face problems when dealing with grown-ups and excuses.

The author displays a story of when he was a child and how he used to say it was not his fault when he did wrong things. These are all things that happened in the authors childhood that actual kids today do. THis was a funny story

What a fantastic read. So much to share and enjoy! The illustrations are engaging, the senarios are believable and humorous. Kids can relate to this really well; and adults should enjoy sharing it with the littlies.

"David Gets in Trouble" is a book about a boy who suddenly has a bout of bad behavior. His behavior includes lying, burping, and even saying bad words. At the end of the day the boy feels bad about his behavior and tells his mother he is sorry and that he loves her. This is a cute book about bad behavior. I read this book to my kids. My son was able to recognize David's behavior as bad behavior. He doesn't realize at times he acts the same way. This was a really good book and the illustrations were funny too. In the classroom, I would have a box and the students would write on a slip of paper their naughtiest behavior. We would have fun pulling strips out of the box and comparing bad behavior. After this I would explain to the students the importance of good behavior and all the rewards that it can reap.

David fits the sterotype of most ornery boys. Going to school without his pants, making faces into the camera during his school picture, and spilling his grape juice all over the floor while trying to carry too much stuff. It is very reminiscent of many things that happen in a young boy's life. I feel that this is a excellent children's book for children 3-5 years range. Everything David does is so boy-like and "cute" in such the way that little boys are such as curious, and active. Every pre-school child I've read this to "Love it!"The simple text and familiar plot allows young children to realize they are not the only one who "get in trouble" It also teaches children responilibities for their actions like in the story how David finally says it was him that did all the leading things and at the end of the day he finally says "I'm sorry." I especially like the message at the end that no matter what David does, his mother will always love him. The pictures and story are ideal, and the HUMOR is perfect for this age group.

David is constantly getting on trouble around the house. In the end he is reassure he is loved by his family.

All day long David does one thing after another that he¿s not supposed to and makes excuses about it. In the end he lies about eating cake, but feels guilty and confesses the truth to his mom. This book is cute and funny.

No, Ronald is the title in our home....this is definitely my grandson Ronald. Ronald is a beautiful and very bright 3 year old, and No David is an excellent set of books or any child of this nature. BRAVO to the Author David Shannon!!!!
