King David founded the city of Jerusalem and made it his capital.
In this telling of the story based on the Midrash, we meet Dovid as a young shepherd before he was chosen to be King. His tender care of every single sheep proved that he had one of the necessary qualities to be King of Israel.
Dovid’s sensitivity helps him solve the question of why the baby sheep would not eat the grass. With a little ingenuity and a lot of compassion Dovid finds the answer.
