Book Description: 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.

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!
If you read my blog regularly, you know by now how much I love this series of books. I have been able to review all of the books in this series so far and they are wonderful! They are packed full of information about different Bible heroes and the time period in which they lived. This biography features King David. We start out hearing about David the shepherd, the anointing of David, his music, and of course killing Goliath. The next several chapters deal with Saul's anger against David, David and Jonathan's friendship, David in hiding waiting for God's plan. Then it moves into David being crowned King and some of the battles and problems that his kingdom faced including David sending Uriah to be killed in battle so he could marry his wife. The last two chapters of the book talk about the plans for the temple and David's throne ruling forever through the Messiah.
In this biography, children get to not just read about the life of King David, but to experience it as well through color photographs, art work, and maps. Plus the book is full of definitions, historical information, Did You Know facts, and information about other Bible Heroes during David's time. This is a great, full color biography for your children to read and enjoy.
