No, David! - David Shannon

This popular children's picture book taps into one of the first words we learn as young kids- NO! While this book is mostly based upon true, but humorous, scenarios many kids go through (drawing on the wall, playing during time out, overflowing the bubble bath, etc.) This book would be perfect for kindergarteners or 1st graders because the illustrations relate to that audience and the children can relate text to self by reflecting on times they were told no. An activity I could do with this book would be at the beginning of school to read this book, then go through do and don'ts on kindergarten/1st grade (what makes a good student vs. what makes a bad student). Overall, this book is so much fun to share with young students while also catching their attention and getting them engaged in the classroom discussion.
