Even though this is a children's book, I enjoyed it and learned from it. I read this as I began my Bible study on the Book Of Esther and it gave a thorough, understandable overview of the entire Old Testament account of Esther.

believes in. The beautiful illustrations help to enhance the story. Since this book flows like a fiction book. Thus, there are no access features. The book makes for a good read aloud story in the classroom. Even though the story is about a religious topic, teachers could still read it in the classroom without having to worry about religion. This book would be great during a unit on standing up for oneself and what one believes is right. The style of the book is kid-friendly and easy for kids to understand.
