{Synopsis} – When author and artist David Shannon was five years old, he wrote a semi-autobiographical story of a little kid who broke all his mother’s rules. He chewed with his mouth open (and full of food), he jumped on the furniture, and he broke his mother’s vase! As a result, all David ever heard his mother say was “No, David!” Here is his story.

{My thoughts} – This book shows what it’s like to be a little child learning the ins and outs of every day life. David is constantly told no or what he is doing is wrong by his mom.

I enjoyed this book. It shows children that it’s okay to explore and make messes. But that when mom says no or stop that you should stop. It also shows them that no matter how much mayhem they cause, that their mom will still love them.

I think this is a great book that should be on every child’s bookshelf. Every child needs to know that it’s okay to mess up and that messing up doesn’t mean that mom is going to love them any less.

Final Conclusion: 4 Star Rating.
