School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 This accurate and upbeat version of the Bible story is written with a limited vocabulary suited to beginning readers. Although the sentences are short and simple, they are nicely varied and read aloud well. The cartoon style watercolor illustrations in warm tones are well-designed, amusing, and expressive, with a variety of perspectives to add interest. All of the figures have a short, childish look which makes them less menacing. Goliath, a burly loudmouth with spiky red hair and beard, is a satisfying bully, toppling like a felled tree and looking quite peaceful in death. David is shown strumming his harp amid a sea of smiling sheep, bopping a lion about to pounce on a lamb, carrying food to his older brothers in the army, dropping Goliath with a well-aimed stone, and being hailed as a hero by the Israelite soldiers. A good choice for reading aloud and for beginning readers. Patricia Pearl, First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, Va.

This story is about a boy named David. He was too little to go to war. David was really brave in this story. David fought the giant with a sling shot you want to find out what happens read the story. I like the book David and the giant because it is fun. I like this part of the story David kills the giant. I like it when his brothers go to war. I like this part of the book when because David kills a lion. I like this part of the book when the giant appear across the valley. Do you like books with giants in them? if you do then David and the giant is for you.
