Holiday Gift Guide ~ David Shannon ~ Best selling children’s book author {Review}

Thank you Scholastic and David Shannon for providing me with two books, free of charge, for review. These are my own honest opinions.


David Shannon is a favorite author in our house, simply because he has a series of books about a little boy named David, which coincidentally is Davey’s name! This series is based off of drawings and books David Shannon made as a child.

We had a couple of David board books when Davey was younger but he went through a phase where he tore up all of his books. Davey was so excited when Scholastic sent us No, David! for review!


No, David! shows pictures on each page of David doing something he shouldn’t, and his mommy says, “No, David!” or “No, no, no!” but in the end she says, “Come here, Davey… Yes, David, I love you.”


Davey loves this book because the character shares his name and gets in trouble all the time… Just like him! He also loves that the words in this book are simple words he recognizes so he can read it himself.


Scholastic also sent us David Shannon’s newest book, Bugs in my Hair! Be warned… This book will make you itchy!! It is all about LICE!! Yuck!


This is actually a really cute book about a boy who gets head lice, and the process of treating head lice. I never would have thought about getting Davey a book about lice, but it is actually a great book for young children in school or daycare. There was recently a case of head lice at Davey’s preschool, but thankfully it didn’t spread. Having a book like Bugs in my Hair! can make the situation less scary for young children.

Either of these books would make a great holiday gift for your little ones this Christmas!

You can buy No, David! on Amazon for $13.04.

You can buy Bugs in my Hair! on Amazon for $12.95.

    Sounds like some cute books. The bugs in my hair book would be a great one for the kids at school since every year you get the cases and notes sent home of head lice being in the classroom and spreading.

    I hope I don’t ever need to read Bugs in my Hair to my grandson, but what a wonderful idea to make a book for kids about lice. I know my grandson will be very freaked out the day it happens to him.

    I would love the “bugs in my hair” for the clients I work with. I work with children, many in foster care, as a clinician. Lice is a big issue. Thanks for the review!
