Little David is on a tear, pulling kitty's tail, saying words that Dad says but he shouldn't, and so on. In the end, he's feeling remorseful and gets a hug from his Mom just the same.
The story allows children to help spot misbehavior and provides a springboard for discussing rules in your own home.
As with No, David! (same author), make sure your child either isn't named David, or if he is, he's secure enough to know it's not about him.
Our now first grader understands very well that these are things that are NOT to be done. After three years of reading, he can now spot the misbehavior in an instant.
It allows a (now) bigger kid, with more of "history" behind him, to feel morally superior to "David" by spotting all of the things "David" shouldn't do (regardless of how many he himself may have done them).
The events are vignettes of life with a circa five-year-old who just wants to have fun.
This is an excellent springboard for opening discussions about rules, behaving well, and socialization in general.
