David Goes to School

Series: No, David!
by David Shannon Illustrated by David Shannon

David's teacher has her hands full. From running in the halls to chewing gum in class, David's high-energy antics fill each school day with trouble, and are sure to bring a smile to even the best-behaved reader.



In this companion to the Caldecott Honor Book No, David!, David is back for a wild, unruly romp through a school day. David — running, yelling, and pushing with abandon — soon tries the patience of his teacher, but his day ends sunnily with some kind words of encouragement.
