1st Graders love David Shannon books! He just seems to understand kids!
There is something about his No, David! series of books that both kids and adults can relate to. Check out this little preview of It's Christmas, David!
I challenged my 1st graders to think about a time when they were told no. After pondering, each student shared how they were told no. We used a free (downloadable) software called Tux Paint to draw David and add text. There were several common themes, with no candy topping the list.
