This is the third book I’ve read by Eleanor Porter, and I just love them all. David’s character completely surprised me as we learn more about him, his unique upbringing by his father, and the people he influenced for good in the book. I came away with such a desire to really notice the beautiful things in nature that are all around us. The tale of his friends in “The Princess and the Pauper,” and it’s ending was also a sweet addition to the book. You won’t want to miss out on this treasure!


Great book!

I really really loved this book. I love how innocent and content David is. It’s a powerful story of how the environment a child grows up in does so much to shape a child’s character.

I loved reading Just David. David’s sweet innocence and love of music, nature, family, and friendships touched my heart. His ability to share his musical talent was tender and refreshing. Just David is a book I will be reading again.

David was raised in an isolated mountain cabin by a devoted father who taught David to love beauty, nature, and music. When David’s father becomes seriously ill, he decides to take David to relatives that the boy has never met. But partway into the journey, his father dies. David does not know the names of his relatives or even the name of his father, which his father had a reason for not telling him. This story is not just about what happens to David, but also what happens to all those who enter his life after this tragic event.
