‘Grow Up, David!’ by David Shannon. Look at this, David’s jumping on the bed. Is that his dad, or his mom, or his brother? Who is that? ‘I will not write in books. I will not write in
books. I will not write in books. I will not write in books. Signed, David Shannon’, the author! That’s funny. ‘Grow Up, David!’ by David Shannon. Nice! Look, he tried to put on his dad’s clothes maybe? ‘David’s big brother always said…No, David! You’re too little.’ Look at that, David’s big brother, playing football. David wants to play too. ‘Stop following me!’ Oh! Look at this. His big brother’s pushing him down. David wants to be part of the fun. What’s this? A tree house? Goin’ up the ladder. ‘Grow up, David!’ David put pencils on his
teeth, and his brother is studying. Maybe his brother is in middle school—maybe. And David is bothering him. He wants to be big too. ‘Very funny, David.’ David tied his brother’s shoes together. That is funny! David didn’t get attention so he
tied his brother’s shoes together. ‘David did it!’ David put all his stuff…look,
there’s a submarine here—toy submarine— a plunger, toilet paper everywhere, a toothbrush… That’s the back of the toilet. Toilet paper over here—a roll. What’s this up here? Is that soap or something? Cotton? What’s that? Man, he put a lot of stuff in the toilet. And the water—this…look, coming down. ‘That’s mine!’ And the the word “mine”. That’s mine! David is enjoying! Look at David’s eyes. It looks like he’s…it
looks like he’s really enjoying that chocolate! And there’s candy everywhere. Look at—there’s a chocolate
handprint. There’s a lollipop up here. Oh, it’s a—oh, I see it’s a—Halloween. There’s a jack-o’-lantern. He must be a superhero. Look at all that candy. And he’s—oh I see, he took his brother’s candy. That’s funny. ‘Go ahead, call mom!’ Oooh, what is his brother doing? Spitting. He’s dripping spit from his mouth. Have you seen that before? When somebody—somebody acts like they’re going to drop spit on you, and they drip it
from their mouth and they suck it back up. You ever see that? Brothers sometimes do that. Oh… ‘Give it back, David!’ Who’s this? This must be…a
girlfriend? Or a girl who likes him. It says, ‘To’…somebody. It may be the brother’s name. Love, “the girl.” And she kissed the
picture, from her lips onto the picture, and gave it to him, and David
took it and is running away with it. That’s funny! Knocking over the chair here. Hmm, look at how angry he is. “Give it back David!” David is enjoying. ‘Have a nice trip!’ Hehe! He knocked his brother over. David was
carrying what—orange juice or something— and he tripped him, put his foot out. David fell! “Whoa!” “Have a nice trip, see you
next fall! Hehe!” Ever seen that? ‘Make me!’ What happened here? Who said what? Did he say something to…? Oh, maybe—maybe he says “give it back”—
maybe David said “give it back” to his brother? And then his brother said “Make me!” and so
David is angry, because he wants something. Maybe ね。 ‘He hit me first.’ Says David. They got in a fight, huh? And then mother got
angry at David, but David said “He hit me first!” It’s not my fault. I’m so angry!” Look, he’s crying! He’s angry. Look at that big mouth. He’s screaming! ‘Thanks a lot, David!’ His brother says, “Thanks a lot, David!” Now what are they doing? What is this? Time-out? They have to look at the wall as
a punishment for what they did. And his brother is saying “Thanks a lot, David!” Man, look at that mess! There’s a lamp on the floor, a table knocked over, there’s a vase with a plant. A chair over here…even the table—that’s a
big ta…or is it a couch, an armchair—fell over. Man, they were really fighting, huh? There’s some juice—maybe—from before. Wow, these guys are really fighting, huh? ‘Want to play?’ えっ！His brother’s asking David? “Want to play?” Or David’s asking his brother. Are they gonna get along now?
Are they gonna—they gonna agree? ‘David, are you okay?’ Uh-oh, what happened to David? He fell down, eh? Maybe the ball—the ball came to him…maybe… and then he—he got hit, and he fell down? And now his brother—David’s
brother—and his friends are asking him: “David are you okay?” Oh, and look at David’s eyes. He’s not okay. ‘Nice catch, Dave! And at the end his brother loves him. Man, look at that! Aw. Give him a noogie! That’s called a “noogie.” And he loves his brother. That’s nice. That’s a nice book. At the end, he always gets
love. And that…is a good book. ‘KEEP OUT! THIS MEAN YOU, DAVID!’ Whose room is this? David’s brother. And this is what’s on the door.
Look it, there’s tape at the top see? It’s on a door—at the bottom… “You keep out, David!” ‘Grow up, David!’ by David Shannon. That was a good book. I really enjoyed that. I hope you did too, and…thanks for watching. Bye.
