Phone Tree Review: As soon as I got this book in hand, I knew that I would love it. It was so colorful and so visually appealing that it invited me into its pages right away. Because the subject matter addressed David – shepherd boy, psalmist, warrior, worshipper and king, I was certain that it would be interesting. The truth of the matter is that this book is not only interesting, but it is also very thoroughly captivating. With rich details and meaty content, Get to Know King David is a dream come true for parents who want to provide their children with a good, solid Biblical education regarding key figures from the Bible.

    • I couldn’t agree more! This book alone convinced me to invest in the entire series. I think we may turn it/them into a unit study series for the summer. I’m still praying on it. Blessings, Christa! 🙂
