Zonderkidz Queen Esther Helps God's People: Formerly titled Esther and the King - eBook

Early readers will learn about how brave Esther saved her people in Esther and the King, as they explore God's Word. The timeless story of Esther, a young Jewish girl who becomes Queen, serves as an example of how God has a purpose for each of us.

Part of the I Can Read! series, this book is a great tool for beginning and developing readers. My First I Can Read! books have basic language, word repetition, and whimsical illustrations that are idea for sharing with an emergent reader. Recommended for ages 4 to 7.

Queen Esther Helps Gods People (make sure the title is in italics) is an easy-to-read version of the story of Queen Esther. When the King is searching for a new queen, Esther is brought to his palace by her cousin Mordecai, in hopes of her being chosen. The king is smitten with her and makes her his queen.But, not everyone is happy about the marriage. Esther is Jewish, and Haman, one of the kings helpers, despises the Jews. He wants to get rid of Esther. So, he goes to the king and asks for his help to rid the land of the Jewish people. The king signs a law that says all the Jews must die. He doesnt realize his new queen is Jewish. Haman has tricked the king! When Mordecai hears about this, he goes to Esther. He says, Esther! Save Gods people! Maybe that is why God made you the queen. Of course, Esther is worried the king will kill all the Jews, including herself. So, she fixes a big feast for the king and invites Haman to attend. During the meal, she confronts Haman and tells the king Haman has tricked him. The king is very angry with Haman and has him arrested. The Jewish people are saved by Esther, their new queen!Esther 4:14 is cited as a reference for this story: Who knows? Its possible you became queen for a time just like this.The cartoon-like illustrations are colorful and appropriate for a book of this nature.What I Like: I like having easy-to-read stories Bible stories for children. What I Dislike: The story is very short and doesnt give much in the way of background as to how Esther ended up in the kings palace in the first place. Thats not really a criticism, just an observation.Overall Rating: Very good.Age Appeal: 4-8.Christian Children's Book Review
