Valuable lessons for your child:
Here are the top lessons that your little one will learn from Stones, Slings, and Giant Things:
- The opening scene of this story will show your child how God asked Samuel to find a new king for Israel to replace the disobedient King Saul. This will help your child realise that God opposes the disobedient.
- Your child will see Samuel shake his head in disapproval as the elder sons of Jesse try to impress him with their antics and looks. This scene will show your child that God does not care for looks at all.
- Your kid will further learn that God selected David as Israel’s next king because He saw the good in David’s heart and knew that he loved Him. Your child will thus learn that God is only impressed by what is in our hearts.
- As the story progresses, your child will see how David was not afraid to take up Goliath on his challenge. He or she will hear David speak with confidence and see him accept Goliath’s challenge, while the others tremble in fear. This will encourage your child to have the same unwavering faith in God that David had.
- Your child will also watch and hear Goliath taunt David. However, he or she will learn that Goliath’s talk did not shake David’s confidence in God. This will help your child learn that God is always with him or her, even in the toughest situations.
- David’s act of courage will surely have a lasting impact on your kid. He or she will be inspired to stand up for what’s right. In fact, the app’s touch-screen animations will allow your child to help David swing his sling at Goliath!
- The app uses different voice styles for David, Goliath, Jesse and his sons to help your child identify the different ways people express their emotions.
- Your little one will also be prompted to memorise the valuable lessons that he or she learns by answering questions in the different sections of the story.

Once your child has gone through this story, here are a few questions that you can encourage him or her to answer:
