- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
David, Boy and King is the biblical story of David, adapted for young readers by noted author and storyteller Luke Hayes. This is the exciting story of the shepherd boy from Bethlehem whom God appointed to be king of the tribes of Israel. It tells of his battle with the giant Philistine Goliath, his friendship with Jonathan, and his long conflict with King Saul.
Kids will identify with young David, who practices with his sling shot and makes up songs as he tends his family’s sheep. They will learn how David, at every important crossroad of his life, trusted the Lord to guide him. As king, he wasn’t perfect, but he understood that all blessings flow from God.
The story of David, Saul, Jonathan and the others is one of the most human tales in the Old Testament. Luke Hayes turns it into an adventure that kids will be eager to enjoy. Read-to-Me Stories of Faith appeal to young readers ages 8-11. They are also ideal stories for parents or grandparents to turn to when a child of any age asks, “Read to me!”

Great readable story for kids. Makes the Bible real and exciting. Mostly about the young David, but more than just the fight with Goliath. My kids really got into it.
