David Goes to School

This story is about David, a little boy who likes to chew gum at school. He likes to draw pictures on his desk and he is always late for school. One day the teacher asked him to clean all the desks. He cleaned everything after school and then he went home. This book shows you that it's not good to behave like David. If I behave like David at my school, I get in trouble!

My favorite part is when David yells out the answers instead of raising his hand and waiting for his turn. I like this part because it reminds me of some kids in my classroom. I think the pictures are very funny because they show David doing all sorts of silly things. This story reminds me of my brother because sometimes he gets in trouble at school, too. Other children should definitely read this book, but not behave like David.

I recommend this book to everyone because it's very funny. You will laugh a lot.
