Can young David win against a giant? Read the story of David, the shepherd boy who fights the mighty giant, Goliath. These beautifully illustrated classic Bible stories are perfect for reading together as well as reading alone. The most popular stories from the Old Testament are retold in easy-to-read language and provide a perfect introduction into the Bible. The series allows children to become familiar with colorful stories from the Old Testament using the familiar picture story format. Whilst the language is simple and easy to understand, the detailed illustrations support the text and provide ideal opportunities for spotting things and for further discussion.
Katherine Sully’s version of David and Goliath is an accurate child’s picture book version of the events in the Bible of the story of the encounter between David and Goliath.
The pictures are bright and colourful adding interest to the story and helping young children to better understand it. There are activities at the back of the book which require the child to look back at the story and enhance the child’s understanding and memory of the story also.
I think that this book is a great way to introduce children to the events in the Bible. This is a book they will read again and again. I gave it a rating of 5 stars out of 5.
Thank you to the publishers via Edelweiss for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
