No, David! by David Shannon
Contains over 40 Sight Words
This book is a quick read, containing only 60 words of which 70% are sight words. Emphasis is placed on the word, NO as it represents 13% of the text. In regards to its counterpart, a more uplifting word, YES, the author eloquently stated, “Yes doesn’t keep crayon off the living room wall.” SO true! Weirdly enough both of my children loved this book as preschoolers; especially when I read it with excessive infliction. The best part is by far the ending. No matter what David did his Mom loved him … how true! No, David! receives four stars as both parents and children found the book very entertaining; however, it lacks a little in the way of sight word content (other than the word No).
