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!

Common Core Standards:

KING DAVID (GET TO KNOW) was very interesting. I learned a lot of new things about King David. I didn’t know that he’d snuck into a large city and overpowered it to make it a new capital. I knew he wrote Psalms. I didn’t know about his friend named Jonathon or that Jonathon was King Saul’s son. 

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about King David.  Ages 6 – 10.  Also in the series is:  Mary, Jesus, and Paul.  Available in paperback.
