An easy-to-read Bible story about Esther Oct 1, 2009
Queen Esther Helps God's People 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 king's 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 doesn't realize his new queen is Jewish. Haman has tricked the king!
When Mordecai hears about this, he goes to Esther. He says, "Esther! Save God's 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? It's 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 doesn't give much in the way of background as to how Esther ended up in the king's palace in the first place. That's not really a criticism, just an observation.
Overall Rating: Very good.
Age Appeal: 4-8.
