Book Description

Brave Queen Esther tells 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”.

My Thoughts

My grandson is 7 and can easily read level 2 aloud. It's a wonderful Biblical story (although a few more accurate parts are missing) of Queen Esther's bravery and heroism.  She risks her life in going before the King. She shows courage in being ready to face danger, deciding to expose a plot to destroy her people to the King. The simple story line moves at a good pace and the many illustrations are quite lovely. I especially love the colorful artwork but wish the book talked a little more about Mordecai (the bad guy) and how evil doesn't win in the end. I recommend the book for your home and Sunday School library.

4/5 stars!

I received this book from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for a fair and honest review.

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.
I really like the author's style of illustrating in the book. The book is 10% off in price today.

Happy Reading!
