A young girl, afraid to face the first day of school, takes courage from the biblical story of Queen Esther.
This book is a great tool for showing examples of strong women.
Our preschooler was encouraged to know that it is Okay to be nervous to start a new school, and admired Queen Esther, but didn't really draw the connection.
This book follows the pattern of the other Thank You series books and is easier to relate to than others.
This book uses the biblical story of Esther to show an example of being brave.
You can draw on the themes of the book (bravery, courage, inner strength) to further explain the topics or to open other discussions.
