I rate this book★★★★★
Book Description Brave Queen Esthertells the story of a brave and beautiful hero of the Old Testament. Written in the I Can Read level two standards, with age-appropriate vocabulary and concepts, young readers read about a young Jewish woman who is chosen to be a queen by a powerful king. When she hears of a plan to hurt all of the Jewish people in the kingdom, she calls on her faith and steps forward, facing certain danger to save God’s people from the evil plan.
This I Can Read! series of Bible stories makes use of the unique features found in the NIV Adventure Bible such as “People in Bible Times” and “Words to Treasure”.
About the Author
Born and raised in Michigan, David spent his childhood sloshing through creek beds, climbing trees, and creating numerous baked goods. That spirit of adventure and curiosity often finds its way into his illustrations through quirky characters and hidden surprises. After spending a decade in Philadelphia and New York pursuing his artistic dreams, David has moved back to the familiar surroundings of Michigan. Now, when he's not drawing and painting he still enjoys a good romp through the woods.
My Daughter And I Review:
Again a fantastic book for children to learn more about the bible. In this book, Esther is looked as a a hero for saving the Jews, along with Mordecai for approaching Esther letting her know of the wrong doing of Haman. This is what my oldest had to say " Mommy I now understand what Esther's role was." My youngest daughter had this to say" She sounds like a real hero to same lives". I personally LOVED this book and hope I get the opportunity to review more in the Adventure Bible series.
