Book Review: I Can Read- "Brave Queen Esther"

Find out how Queen Esther saved God’s people in this level 2 I Can Read, written in the tradition of the popular Adventure Bible. Brave Queen Esther tells the story of one of the Bible’s most well-known Old Testament heroes and how she bravely stood up to a powerful king.


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 Review:
One of my favorite Bible stories to share with my kids to encourage them to be courageous and bold in their faith.   I love to remind them that they have a purpose and are powerful princes and princess's of the most high God.   The story is told in an understanding way for developing readers.   All of the words are appropriate for developing readers to read or sound out.   
The pictures are wonderful to bring this Bible story to life.   I also am glad that this story did not go into detail how Haman was put to death... I will save those details once my children are old enough!   I will keep the G rated stories a priority for my young children.  
I mentioned comparing this book to having courage but I also think you can discuss standing up to bullies, following the path God has for you life, having wisdom in a very tricky situation, and fearless faith in trusting God when Esther could have faced death. 
This book is a must have for your library to continue to raise your children knowing and understanding Bible stories! 

Thanks Zondervan for sending me this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.   I was not paid for this and all opinions are 100% mine.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
