King David Review

In the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of reviewing a series of books by Nancy I. Sanders. I am simply IN LOVE with this series.

I reviewed Get to Know Jesus a few weeks back. You can read my review here.  

I was then asked to review the Get to Know Paul book by the same author. You can read my review of that book here.  I also did the Get to Know Mary book, and you can read that review by clicking here. 

I think this series of books is absolutely perfect for my 5 and 6 year old boys. I even think my 3 year old daughter will be able to glean some knowledge and enjoy reading it with me. While the boys cannot read this on their own yet, I believe that each of these books will be a great book for us to read through together and really discuss and learn.

David led an adventurous life -- from shepherd to warrior to the king of Israel. But he was also a man of God. "For many years, critics said the story of David in the Bible was a myth or fairy tale. They said David was just a story that was fun to read. They said David was not a real person. Nothing had been found in history to prove he actually lived. But that all changed in in 1993. Scientists called archaeologists dug up an artifact form long ago. It was a stone table with writing on it proving David was a real person."

The book and pages are sturdy and colorful. It is well organized with great color photos. There are 4-color maps, Scripture references and fun facts, a Word Bank, and much more. This is sure to become a favorite for young readers and for first book reports!

BookLook Bloggers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and truthful review.
