Review: Get To Know:King David by:Nancy I. Sanders
About the Book:
A Shepherd and A King
David lived an adventurous life. He protected his family's sheep from lions and bears. He fought a giant with just a sling and stone. He even spent years hiding from men who were trying to kill him. And eventually, David became a great king. But David was also a man of God. Learn more about this hero from the Bible and his exciting place in history. Discover what it was like to grow up in ancient Israel and then be a king of God's people. King David part of the Get to Know series will teach you everything you need to know about an imperfect young man whom God used to do great things!
Many know of the story of a little shepherd boy by the name of David that was able to defend his flock against lions and bears with his sling shot. And I bet if you ask them, they can even tell you the story of that same shepherd boy taking down a man by the name of Goliath with a stone, slung from a sling shot. But for many the story ends there. They aren't aware that he ended up being king when he got older. Get To Know:King David, is a great biography on David and his life.
This book meant for 9-12 year olds is the perfect book to teach your child even more about individuals from the Bible. This book is not filled with cartoon-like illustrations but actual photographs that lend to the story of his life and makes it that much more vivid.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Book Look.
