Synopsis: The Israelites and the Philistines were at war. The Philistines were certain to win because they had the great Goliath as their champion. Surely no Israelite would dare to take on so mighty a warrior? Then the shepherd David stepped forward... Age 6+.
From Booklist: Reviewed with Mary Auld's David and Goliath and Jacob and Esau.
Gr. 3-4, younger for reading aloud. Each book from the publisher's Bible Stories series includes a retelling of an Old Testament story, told partly through dialogue and partly through narration. The good-sized type will encourage readers just beyond the beginning reader stage, while the many richly colored illustrations make the books accessible to younger children as well. The composition of the paintings has a formal quality that gives a sense of a narrative unfolding on stage--perhaps in a series of tableaux. Well chosen in terms of their inherent drama and their cultural importance, the stories of David and Goliath, Jacob and Esau, and Noah's Ark are clearly retold here. Each book ends with some helpful notes on the story and its source, a map of the Middle East during biblical times, a glossary, and a few textbooklike questions. Carolyn Phelan
