Young David and Young Joseph picturebooks are published by SPCK. They creatively engage young children with the early lives of two of the Bible’s great heroes: David and Joseph. The stories are written to appeal to 21st children and help them deal with real issues in their lives including sibling rivalry, bullying and fear of the unknown. Wittily written and illustrated – with scene-stealing cows and sheep accompanying our young heroes on their adventures - the stories are guaranteed to warm hearts and tickle funny bones.
A superb series for primary school children about David. It stirred my own limp faith, let alone my three-year-old’s burgeoning spirituality … so well does the author understand the modern child.– Jemima Thackeray, The Church Times.
Fiona Veitch Smith and Andy Catling have done an excellent job with Joseph. The text is fun, accessible and imaginative, yet still faithful to the biblical story. And best of all there are cows!– Bob Hartman, bestselling children’s author.
