    Oh yes I ve read other people s reviews of this book I understand that it s pure catnip to Jasons, Ethans and Rebeccas throughout the land But until now, one perspective has been conspicuously absent So let me try to rectify that MY NAME IS DAVID AND I LOATHE THIS BOOK.Why Let me count the ways 1 The book s message is uniformly nihilistic throughout Instead of being taught to embrace life in all its infinite variety, the feral, razor toothed, wolf child is subjected to a constant stream Oh yes I ve read other people s reviews of this book I understand that it s pure catnip to Jasons, Ethans and Rebeccas throughout the land But until now, one perspective has been conspicuously absent So let me try to rectify that MY NAME IS DAVID AND I LOATHE THIS BOOK.Why Let me count the ways 1 The book s message is uniformly nihilistic throughout Instead of being taught to embrace life in all its infinite variety, the feral, razor toothed, wolf child is subjected to a constant stream of negativity and denial from an obviously sadistic disembodied authority figure 2 Is it not remarkable that there are no other children evident anywhere in this vicious little vignette of cruelty and persecution Why is this Well, obviously because Jason, Ethan, Becky and the gang are all hanging out at Jason s crib, watching Bob the Builder and scarfing down marshmallow n ketchup pizza, because Jason s mom is like totally cool, and a future MILF to boot.3 And what is it with the kid s teeth anyway Even feral children deserve a little time with the orthodontist The crude, ugly caricature of a wolf child that the author presents here is a hideous calumny with the potential to cause severe emotional damage to Davids throughout the land.4 It is a complete travesty to think that the single instance of faintly nurturing behavior demonstrated by the Eva Braun authority figure to someone called Davey could possibly negate the damage inflicted by the litany of negativity and denial that precede it.The dedication on this woeful screed reads as follows To Martha, my mother, who kept me in line then,and to Heidi, my wife, who keeps me in line now from which it is obvious that David Shannon is a completely pitiful individual, who has obviously embraced his pathetic, whipped existence.BUT, FELLOW WARRIOR DAVIDS, THAT DOESN T MEAN WE HAVE TO TAKE THE PEANUT BUTTER JAR, SMEAR IT ALL OVER THIS BOOK, AND THEN FEED IT INTO THE VCR And don t forget to check the site www.davidsunitedagainstcaregivercruel regularly to monitor progress of the class action suit

    My nephew could read this book as it had about 3 words per page mostly They are words that he knows very well and he was able to act these out once he figured out what was going on You see, my nephew gets these words all the time My nephew is basically this little boy David in the story He is always doing something he shouldn t and getting No , or Stop He got in on the joke and he began to sound like me or his Mom His Dad doesn t do that as much He handles things better mostly I need My nephew could read this book as it had about 3 words per page mostly They are words that he knows very well and he was able to act these out once he figured out what was going on You see, my nephew gets these words all the time My nephew is basically this little boy David in the story He is always doing something he shouldn t and getting No , or Stop He got in on the joke and he began to sound like me or his Mom His Dad doesn t do that as much He handles things better mostly I need to work on my skills, anyway.The artwork is great and the kid does look like a little monster sometimes, but there is still so much love for the kid The one thing this book missed was eating at the table My nephew has to be one of the messiest eaters ever and almost every other meal he spills his little water cup If we were to add a page it would be, pick that up and wipe your hands and face Something to that effect and he would be covered by food David did make this cool guy with a fork, 2 chicken legs, green beans, and a potato for a head and the nephew thought that was so cool We will probably being seeing that soon too at the table The niece laughed at how similar her brother and David were The nephew loved being in on the joke for once and he understood how this boy felt The nephew gave this 5 stars and the niece gave this 4 stars We have a lot of fun reading this I do love that the last page is saying, I love you It s the best ending

    I am David This is a book about little ADHD mini me And since it is a semi autobiographical picture book, it is also about a David much like David Shannon, of course I also gave it at his birth to nephew and godson David, which as it turns out was an appropriate gift for another No, David kinda kid Self fullfilling prophecy Is there something about being David Possibly I always thought of my name as connected to the wise and Goliath slaying David of the Bible, but when I asked my I am David This is a book about little ADHD mini me And since it is a semi autobiographical picture book, it is also about a David much like David Shannon, of course I also gave it at his birth to nephew and godson David, which as it turns out was an appropriate gift for another No, David kinda kid Self fullfilling prophecy Is there something about being David Possibly I always thought of my name as connected to the wise and Goliath slaying David of the Bible, but when I asked my mother if this was the reason she had named me David, she said No, David There was this woman across the hall from me in the hospital and I didn t know what to name you and she said she was going to call her son David and I thought, that sounds nice She would say No, David fartimes than Yes, David over the years, but we really did love each other Oh, the book It s funny, especially about certain kinds of kids boys And the art is wonderfully kooky and colorful A classic

    A classic among children s books, this book never ceases to amuse me David distinctly reminds me of my brother when he was an innocent blond Here s one memory of his countless antics.I ve always wondered what kind of person David would grow up to be While I have trouble envisioning a teenage David, I doubt he d be identical to my brother Still, I can t imagine that they d be markedly different All in all an endearing book A classic among children s books, this book never ceases to amuse me David distinctly reminds me of my brother when he was an innocent blond Here s one memory of his countless antics.I ve always wondered what kind of person David would grow up to be While I have trouble envisioning a teenage David, I doubt he d be identical to my brother Still, I can t imagine that they d be markedly different All in all an endearing book

    Although thankfully, David Shannon s No, David does end in a conciliatory and affirmative enough manner in so far that David s mother obviously loves her son even though he clearly is a proverbial holy terror most of the time , personally I have found No, David not even remotely to my liking, to my reading tastes For honestly, that ALL of Shannon s scenarios of behaviour in No, David present instances of young David negatively acting out and often massively so, this certainly has made No, D Although thankfully, David Shannon s No, David does end in a conciliatory and affirmative enough manner in so far that David s mother obviously loves her son even though he clearly is a proverbial holy terror most of the time , personally I have found No, David not even remotely to my liking, to my reading tastes For honestly, that ALL of Shannon s scenarios of behaviour in No, David present instances of young David negatively acting out and often massively so, this certainly has made No, David rather monotonous and one sided for me, as though ALL David can do is to basically just be a royal pain in the behind And even the mother s declaration that she still loves her son does not really make the one after another litany of David s many peccadilloes fun and interesting for me and in particular because No, David is also just a list of David s bad behaviours with no explanations ever offered to him why, just a constant no, no, no, but never in fact giving David a real talking to about what is good and what is unacceptable, what is bad or problematic ways and manners of acting Combined with the fact that and the Caldecott Honour designation David Shannon received for No, David quite notwithstanding I on a personal visual level also really do massively despise the accompanying illustrations since yes indeed and albeit that Shannon s use of colour is bright and lively, I find David depicted in a visually totally repellant manner that makes him look creepy and in particular his teeth quite fang like and perhaps even evil I really cannot considerthan one star for No, David and that yes indeed, this book has both been a massive disappointment and on a personal aesthetics level, that I also really do have trouble understanding why No, David is a Caldecott Honour book as for me, David Shannon s illustrations actually do seem to render poor David into almost a monster

    One of my favorite children s stories, probably because it reminds of me of my oldest son when he was small David seems prone to get in trouble, and even though he seems to have trouble behaving, his mommy loves him unconditionally We love the illustrations my grand daughter got the biggest kick out of the one where he has escaped down the street after his bath, running butt naked.


  8. Ryk Stanton Ryk Stanton says:

    My 2 year old son insists I give this book 5 stars I myself would give it three maybe even 2 since David is told NO so often without explanations of why or attempts at redirection but this is the one book my son brings to me time and time again I literally read it to him 6 times today He s adorable when he reads along with me So I guess that any book that gets such love from my 2 year old deserves 5 stars.


  9. Sunny Sunny says:

    My middle son s favorite book as a child The little stinker he especially loved the part when David ran naked down the street to avoid a bath We giggled and giggled everytime we read this book together.Man I miss when my boys were little.

    No, David is David Shannon s first book of the David series and has won the Caldecott Honor Book Award, which it richly deserves that honor This book details the adventures of David being bad while his mother continually tells him NO, DAVID David Shannon s first attempt at making the David series is truly a masterpiece to this very day David Shannon s writing style is memorable as he writes in a simple preschool format that is easy enough for readers at a young age could relate to a No, David is David Shannon s first book of the David series and has won the Caldecott Honor Book Award, which it richly deserves that honor This book details the adventures of David being bad while his mother continually tells him NO, DAVID David Shannon s first attempt at making the David series is truly a masterpiece to this very day David Shannon s writing style is memorable as he writes in a simple preschool format that is easy enough for readers at a young age could relate to as he details David s mischievous adventures David Shannon s illustrations are truly inspiring as he illustrates David with a large head and sharp teeth and his gleeful expressions as he seemly enjoys the mischief that he causes No, David is one of David Shannon s finest children s books ever created and is surely to make anyone laugh out loud whenever they witness David s mischief in the household and making his mother go crazy when she keeps telling him, NO, DAVID Even though this book might entice bad behavior towards children, it is suitable for children ages four and up since the vocabulary and the writing style are simple to read for any preschooler.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog
