David and Goliath: A Story About Courage

David and Goliath: A Story About Courage offers several learning approaches all in one package. Targeted for early readers, this die-cut boardbook uses simple language to tell the famous Old Testament story.

The included DVD enhances the learning experience through games, activities, music and videos. These teach word recognition, vocabulary, reading comprehension, decision-making skills, proper pronunciation and Scripture memorization.

The book and DVD are both illustrated with the bold outline drawings and plenty of vivid colors. The characters are cartoon-like, but not too cutesy.

What I Like:The story is biblically accurate. The illustrations are great! I love the bold style and inviting colors. Having two preschoolers, I greatly appreciate the publisher's seamless ability to combine Scripture with early reading skills. My kids love the music videos.

What I Dislike: The book claims to have 100+ interactive activities. This is a bit of a stretch. In reality, there are about 9 different activities with various modes or levels within them. All of them are great, but the advertisement of over 100 things you can do seems misleading.

Overall Rating: Very Good.

Age Appeal: 3-8
