"David Sticker Book" by Karen Williamson; illustrated by Amanda Enright

ISBN: 9781859859315
About the book:   David Sticker Book is a fun, interactive retelling of the story of David and Goliath, complete with four pages of stickers, so children can help illustrate the story and fill in the gaps. Kids will love the fun, reusable stickers and bright illustrations as they engage with this well-loved Bible story.

My thoughts:  This is a nice little Bible story book that gives a good accounting of the story of David from his anointing by Samuel to his becoming King of Israel.  The text is comprised of short sentences that would be easily understood by the age child to which the book is directed.

The stickers (4 pages!) enhance the child's experience in learning and enjoying this Bible story.  I recommend the book and know that children will enjoy putting all the stickers in place from the tiny ladybug sticker to big bad Goliath or the crown for David.  At $5.99 parents and other adults will find this a good investment in a child.

About the authors:  Karen Williamson worked as a London primary school teacher and publisher's editor before launching a successful career as full-time writer. With three children of her own, she specializes in Bible stories for young readers. 
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review from Kregel Publications.
