Series: David #1

 

David


“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. 

David


“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.

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

In this book, the main character, Camilia Creme loves to eat lima beans. But she does not like to eat them in fornt of her friends at school, because they make fun of her. This book shows readers how if someone cares about what people think, it can show effect that person. I would use this book in my classroom if I were to teach about confidence or bullying.

A Bad Case of Stripes - David Shannon

A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon is a cute story about a young girl named Camilla

who loves lima beans. She refuses to eat them because her friends dislike them and suddenly she ends up with a bad case of stripes. The doctors run tests and studies on her but nothing seems to work. She seems to just be getting worse until she eats lima beans as the cure and is back to normal. I would have my students complete an activity sheet with visualizations from the book. The students will draw two pictures of what Camilla looked like at different times in the book and then write a paragraph describing her for each time. I would ask my students to be very descriptive with their details of Camilla. I would rate this book a four and a half stars out of five and it is listed as AD540L on the Lexile scale.

No, David! - David Shannon

This is another simple and silly read. Very few words are used in the book, almost all of which are “no” and “david.” The story follows David as he does crazy things and his mother telling him no. At the end, his mom makes sure to reassure him that she loves him though.

 

This book is good in the classroom for showing how illustrations help to tell a story. The illustrations show everything that David does that he shouldn’t be doing.
