Get to Know King David by Nancy I. Sanders Book Review

David led an adventurous life-from shepherd to warrior to king of Israel. But he was also a man of God. Read about this hero from the Bible and his place in history.

Get to Know King David is a very colorful biography for kids. This book has 12 chapters followed by 5 other sections of resources. This a bible study tool for kids to learn about the life of King David with his biography and scripture references. Each chapter and paragraph are short and great for young readers.

A Shepherd Boy
A Servant in the Kings Court
The Giant Killer
King Saul's Anger
In Hiding
Waiting for God's Plan
Crowned as King
The Second King of Israel
The Turning Point
Sad Times
Temple Plans
David's Throne Forever

Other resources are:

Timeline of David
Selected Bibliography
Source Notes
Student Resources

This has wonderful full color photographs, maps, and other resources. The book has icons to help recognize important information and facts. Some of the icons are for information like:

Bible Hero-This is information about a Bible hero.
Eyewitness account-someone who saw what happened tells about it.
Did You Know?-You will learn some fun facts.
Word Bank – Learn the vocabulary of new words which are also highlighted in the book.

My Thoughts:

I like that this is simple for young readers yet filled with good information that is easy to understand. I love history and I love how this is presented in this book.

This would be great for any Christian school resource. I am planning on using this in my homeschool this year. I look forward to sharing it with my children.

There are other books in this series also. I was very pleased with this book and would highly recommend this book.

Disclosure of Material Connection: BookLook Bloggers-Thomas Nelson Publishers provided me this Book free as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have or my own.
