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”.
Brave Queen Esther is a level 2 of the I Can Read! series. Level 2 is defined as “High-interest stories for developing readers.” My son is 7 and loves reading and learning about new people from the bible and Queen Esther is one person he had never heard of so I thought this would be a great book to introduce him to her. The book has 32 pages of colorful illustrations that really help draw you into the story. The font was easy to read. It leaves out some details but that helps keep it on a child’s reading level. I use a Christian Homeschool curriculum so this is a great book to supplement with. He really enjoyed the story. At the end of the book there is a People of the Bible and Did You Know? section which helps familurize them with the characters and details from the story. Definitely a must have for your little readers library.
