Get to Know King David by Nancy I. Sanders

And David said, "The Lord saved me from the paw of the lion. He saved me from the paw of the bear. And he'll save me from the powerful hand of this Philistine too." -(1 
Samuel 17:37, NIrV and excerpt from Get to Know King David)

Recently I had the opportunity to review Get to Know Mary, one of the books in a series of Get to Know books about people found in the Bible by Nancy I. Sanders.  My next choice was Get to Know King David.  

Get to Know King David is a pocket-sized paperback biography for kids ages 6-10.  It contains an incredible amount of information about the life of King David, Israel's second and most well-known king.  Inside you will find artwork, artifacts, maps, and photographs all pertaining to the life and times of King David.  Some of the chapter titles include  A Shepherd Boy, The Giant Killer, Crowned as King, and Temple Plans.  

I really like this book.  There was a LOT of information!  It is really nice to have all of this information about him consolidated in one place.  It is a wonderful Bible study and resource too.  All of the photographs, maps and pictures of artifacts makes the text of the Bible come alive!

I would recommend this book to anybody who wanted to do further Bible study of the life of King David.  It would also be a great resource for homeschoolers.  This is not a book to read through quickly.  A large amount of time could be devoted to studying his life.  And it all leads up to Jesus...

Many blessings to you all as you grown in God's Word!
