David Goes to School | David Shannon

#RedRoseSeptember My son Zach and my nephew David were in the same class beginning in Kindergarten until 4th grade. Zach was always a good student but his cousin David was a little hyper. Needless to say, this book series always captivated my son‘s attention. He often mused how the author knew about cousin David?!? Zach was convinced these books were written about my nephew. #SitDown( David) was apparently a daily request from Mrs. Nosenchuck😜

Cinfhen FYI: Cousin David is doing great!!! And he‘s a wonderful student now. And David Shannon, the author wrote these books about himself!!! 14h
TrishB Lol 😁 love that! 14h
Texreader This is a great story!! Love how your son thought this was about his friend. That‘s adorable!! 14h

Cinfhen The funny thing is @TrishB @Texreader @arlenefinnigan @LeahBergen these books REALLY could have been written about cousin David 😂😂😂 (edited) 11h

Cinfhen I bet the kids LOVED reading about a naughty David @EnidBiteEm ❣️❣️❣️Flo might like these books @emilyhaldi but I‘m betting G is too mature a reader for this series 4h

My Kindergarten class reads this book every year to remind them that their parents are still thinking of them even when they are with me at school!

Adorable book with a sweet message.

Today, my class made their own versions of the main character, Chester! How cute are they!

This is a prime example of a book that I adore but wasn't really that well received by my 5 year old. The illustrations are fabulous. The pages showing the little boy's daydreams are gorgeous, so much detail, so imaginative, something new to be amused by on every viewing. But my daughter was markedly underwhelmed. It was like there was TOO much going on & she zoned out. Oh well, can't win 'em all!

readingjedi Photo shows one of the less 'busy' illustrations - the colours and detail are gorgeous. 2d

I lost my most precious friend during the night. I‘m not sure any book can comfort me but I‘m going to try to distract myself with one. My heart hurts more than word can express. ❤️Elliot❤️

#SelfImprovementSept Day 11: My doctoral student has just sent me an email that is immediately going into my #BucketList now that I have moved here in the Middle East. Very gradually finding my bookish tribe.

Cinfhen Wow!!! So much going on❣️❣️❣️❣️ 1w

Ok, I've said this before but I'm going to STOP (temporarily) buying books! This is my TBR pile and I need to get through these before buying more!! We'll see how long I last....

TheSpineView Good one! Still laughing! 🤣🤣🤣 1w
marleed I don‘t stack my books by have read vs TBR because I remember (most of the time) what I‘ve read when I see them. I think it helps me not be frustrated by a growing TBR stack. 1w
Djspens @marleed then your memory is way better than mine! I can read the description of books I've read and still not remember reading them 😂 1w

Djspens @TheSpineView I know... I know... 🙄😂 1w
TheSpineView @Djspens I have the exact problem. 1000s of unread books I own and yet I go right out and big more. It's an addiction and I can't quit!🤪 1w
marleed Ebooks and audio from the library - I have a tough time remembering them. There must be some visceral holding of a physical book that makes an indelible mark in my memory. ... I forget my lib books so often that I started bullet journaling an index card for each book - obviously that touchy thing helps me! 1w
Djspens @marleed I buy the books that I listen to on audio, too, just so I have them. Lol and to remember I "read" them 1w
marleed @Djspens Omg - I do the same thing! I try to thrift them, but not always :( 1w
