Happy Birthday David Shannon!

Friday, October 5th is David Shannon's birthday! Author/illustrator Shannon is more widely known for his children's book No, David! When Mr. Shannon was 5 years old, he wrote and illustrated his first book and on every page were these words: No, David! as well as a picture of David doing things he was not supposed to do. The pictures are bright and the colors cover every inch of every page. Kids really enjoy this story and I always like happy endings, even in children's books. In honor of Mr. Shannon's birthday, check out some of his books and you'll probably want to add his name to your list of favorite author and/or illustrator.
