David Goes to School

David Goes to School

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.
