Find out about Samuel and Saul in 1 Samuel.
Look at some of the prayers and songs David wrote - through good times AND bad.

And use your XTB Crown Coder to discover who the Real King is.
XTB (eXplore The Bible) is a series of daily Bible reading notes for children of the 7-11 age group, with puzzles, pictures and prayers. Issue Eight is called The Real King. Three months of Bible readings to help you investigate the first Easter in the last part of Mark's Gospel, to meet the last of the judges - Samuel - and the first king of Israel - Saul - in the book of 1 Samuel, and to dip into some of King David's psalms as well, plus you get a FREE XTB Crown Coder...!
XTB8 is beautifully presented with full-colour illustrations and is part of a series of 12 books which, if used on a quarterly basis, will help a child cover all of the main books, themes and characters of the Bible in 3 years.
Look out for Table Talk - a book of daily Bible times for families with children aged from 4 upwards. The Bible passages are the same each day for XTB and Table Talk - so you can use the two books together, or on their own. Whichever suits you best.
We kick off in Mark and cover chs 14-16 over days 1-20
Day 21 opens up the book of 1 Samuel and we'll look through chs 1-5 until day 35
Days 36-45 examine some of David's Psalms (prayers or songs to God)
Back to 1 Samuel on day 46 and you'll get through chs 8-17 by day 65.
A series of puzzles and questions at the very end of the book offer a chance to look into other parts of the Bible not covered here.
Hope you have lots of fun with the Crown Coder. It's very cool.
