5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and learning combined nicely,
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids and has lots of stickers,
My kids really liked this book. I did it with both my 4-year-old and my 2-year-old and it took them a few days to complete the entire book. The book itself isn't big or long at all, but it has a lot of stickers to fill the pages. It was easy to put the stickers on and move them if they put them in the wrong place.
The story was the biblical account for kids about David and Goliath. My favorite part of the book for me was reading the story in the Bible to them. I really liked that they put the book and chapter that the story can be found at the very end.
The pictures were very eye-appealing and my kids liked both the pictures and the drawings on the stickers. It was very bright and colorful. This is a book that I would definitely purchase for kids. It would be a great quiet time book, or one that you can do if you want to spend some alone time with your child.
I received this book free from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars David Sticker Book - Great for Little Ones,
Based on the Biblical story of David and Goliath, and written by author Karen Williamson, this short book recounts the familiar tale in just twelve pages (a perfect length for a very young reader or listener). The illustrations have a friendly and somewhat whimsical flair and are sure to capture the attention of a child.
The fun element of this book is that it comes with four pages of stickers for the reader to add to the story! The sticker design is great - each sticker has a specific place in the book, and these spots are printed lightly so that children can easily match the correct sticker to its place. Our two year old loved looking at the photos, but didn't quite grasp the concept of stickers yet. I imagine he will have a grand time finding the right place to place each one when he is just a little bit older.
The book contains enough stickers to keep a little one entertained for quite some time - and even after all the stickers have been placed, the book can be read over and over again! One of the best features is that the story includes the Biblical reference to David's story. I don't recall seeing this often in children's Bible books, and I think it is a wonderful addition.
Thanks to Kregel Publications for my review sample.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful little book for small children,
My Thoughts On This Book
The Story of David and Goliath is one that most children enjoy and remember well. David Sticker Book tells this wonderful Bible story in words, pictures and added stickers for children to interact with the story. And I was suprised at the amount of stickers that are included in the book, they are wonderful. And I really like the illustrations as well. The book is a whole is beautiful inside and out. And as usual, I used my four year-old niece as the real person to review this book of David, and she absolutely loved it! We read the story together and she had a wonderful time placing the stickers on the correct pages, and as she placed the stickers, she talked about each one and we had fun talking about David and Goliath. This tells me that the stickers are a valuable source to go with the story because it keeps children much more interested in the story.
I highly recommend this book for your small child. I will know they will love it just as much as my niece does. And she still loves reading the book, even after the stickers are all in place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written, Biblically Sound and Adorably Illustrated,
"The story of David complete with four pages of stickers to help illustrate each page"
About the Author: 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.
About the Illustrator: Amanda Enright lives with her family near Brighton, on England's South Coast. She has always enjoyed drawing and loved the illustrations in her childhood books by artists such as Richard Scarry. Enright trained in London at Camberwell College of Art, the Royal College of Art and St Martin's College of Art, winning a prize for drawing and a Special Student Award at Annecy film festival. Amanda is inspired by Matisse and Picasso, and by beautiful old and new children's books, vintage fabrics and toys. She has a young daughter and a very large dog called Harvey - a black Russian Terrier that looks like a bear.
My thoughts about the book: Okay so I admit it, I am still a great big child at heart. When I was provided an opportunity to review the David Sticker Book for Kregel Publications I thought to myself, "WOW that sounds pretty awesome to me," so I accepted the challenge and read the book and loved it.
The story is Biblically sound and the illustrations are definitely adorable and well done. Hey, if a 57 year old man can enjoy the book, imagine how much fun a child 3 and older can have with the book. They will enjoy both the story as well as the fun they have placing the stickers where they belong in the book. That interactive part of the book, a great tool to get your child more actively involved in the story, makes it all the more memorable to them I think. And that is something we all desire for our children as Christian parents...that they learn and remember Biblical accounts as recorded in the Scriptures.
The easy to read sixteen page book, including the sticker pages, is sure to delight the heart of any child and please the Christian parent reading the book with them as they both will learn and be reminded of the story of how God chose David to be His King, used him mightily in His service and was ultimately glorified through David because of how he loved and served his God. The story is a good example for us to know from the Word of God and also to follow...that just as David feared and obeyed God, so should we. I give the David Sticker Book *****!

4.0 out of 5 stars cute story, fun stickers.,
The David Sticker Book written by Karen Williamson and illustrated by Amanda Enright is a great interactive story for your preschooler. What could be better than lots of stickers and the story of King David? As you read the story to your little one, they can place the stickers on the picture. They will be drawn into the story of David's life by the adorable illustrations and the text is written so they can easily understand.
But for me, the $5.99 price tag (printed on the back) is a tad high for such a thin book for children. Admittedly, my husband and 3 year had a lot of fun putting the stickers in this book and reading it together. So maybe that alone could make it worth the price.
Also, the book very quickly covers the span of David's life, but I would have liked to at least have seen a reference to David's importance in light of the eventual coming of Christ the Messiah. I know that is being picky, but just thought I would throw that in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interactive and Fun!,
Recently my daughter and I read this new book called the David Sticker Book written by Karen Williamson and Illustrated by Amanda Enright. This sticker book was so fun! While reading the stories the children are able to put in stickers to fill in the missing pictures on the page. Stickers are always a big hit with kids, and it helps keep them involved in the story. The book begins with the story of Samuel traveling to Jesse's house to choose a new king that would eventually replace King Saul. The book also covers: the story of Goliath, David playing the harp for Saul, Saul chasing after David and ends with David finally becoming king. This book is for children ages 3 and older.
I think the author did a great job re-telling the story on a child's level of understanding. The illustrations are adorable and fun to look at. My daughter is 4 years old and had a great time reading and putting the stickers in the book. The book includes 4 pages of stickers! If you're looking for a gift for a child and want something that would be encouraging spiritually and fun, then be sure to pick up the David Sticker Book. I would definitely recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Sticker Book!,
The David Sticker Book is a fun new book by Karen Williamson, illustrated by Amanda Enright, and published by Candle Books, a part of Lion Hudson. This is a summarized story of David and Goliath for kids, with bright illustrations and FOUR pages full of reusable stickers! Each page in the story has places for stickers.
Chad is ten years old, and I wasn't sure if he would think a sticker book like this is too babyish. Then it arrived, and oh boy did he get excited! He set right to work applying the stickers. He had so much fun, and has continued to pull it out and enjoy it. Of course, for him the stickers were the important part, but to Mom the story was the important part. I thought the story of David was written well for children, and kept him interested throughout. I received this book free from Kregel in exchange for my honest review.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Book! Great, Colorful Illustrations,
This sticker book about the life of David from the Bible was fun for them. It provided a few different lessons for them (depending on God, looking at the heart, God's protection). It also had several stickers that the kids could fix into place on the pictures. The book used good, solid words, adding to my kids' vocabulary.
I think this would be a great book for families (although, if you have more than one child, you'll want one for each). It could also be a fun Bible school give-away or prize.
4.0 out of 5 stars It has STICKERS!,
Yes, you read that right. It's a sticker book. Seeing that I'm not adequately qualified to review such material, I enlisted the help of an expert. Meet Neo. Nehemiah for long, as he likes to say. At 6 years of age, I figured he would set me straight.
The story is a simple retelling of the events of 1 Samuel 16-19. It includes the anointing of David by Samuel, his battle against Goliath, and his rise to the throne of Israel. It's quick moving and action packed. Just right for the preschool and kindergarten crowd.
But the highlight is the stickers! Four pages of beautiful, child entertaining stickers. The David Sticker book would work well as a family devotional resource as well as in a nursery or small Sunday School setting. It's simple,to the point, and has STICKERS!
I'd like to thank Kregel Publications for sending me this free copy for review.
