Book Review: "Adventure Bible: Brave Queen Esther"

Zonderkidz' Adventure Bible I Can Read series is based on the Adventure Bible and illustrated by David Miles.

"Brave Queen Esther" tells the story of Esther. It followed the Biblical story but left out some of the aspects of the story such as why King Xerxes was looking for a new queen. It also makes it seem that Esther was the only girl brought to the palace. It also did not say why Esther was in danger if she went to the King. When we read the story, I talked about these portions of the story that the book did not cover.  It is nice to have books that I can let my children read and know that it is teaching truth. It is a Level 2 reader which stands for "Reading with Help-high interest stories for developing readers". The illustrations were beautiful and reminded me of colored pencil pictures. Many of the pages are completely covered with color making the book visually appealing. At the end of the book is a "People of the Bible" section that tells a little bit more about Esther and Mordecai and a "Did You Know?" section that tells about the festival of Purim.

I would recommend this book for those with young children in their lives.

Too bad they didn't have the missing things in there but then maybe it would have been to hard for that level of reading.
