When David gets in trouble, he has excuses right up until bedtime, when he realizes he really is sorry and apologizing makes him feel better. By the creator of No, David!
I love David Shannon books and was looking forward to reading this. As I began, I related to all of the things David did and said when he got in trouble, because they are the same things my little boys say when they get in trouble. However, I was hoping for a better conclusion. It is implied that David feels bad that he didn’t own up to his mistakes, but I think it could have been made a little clearer for little ones to understand.
