Book Review | The Queen Who Saved Her People
by Tilda Balsley

Score: 3.5

Illustrated by Ilene Richard

The author who brought us the delightful, Let My People Go!” has written a new Readers Theater style book based on the Purim story. For the very young, this is a perfect read-aloud version of the Book of Esther, told in rhyme with simple language and fun, brightly colored illustrations.

However, for those students who can read by themselves or even memorize words, this has the makings of a wonderful Purim Schpiel with rioles for a Narrator, King Ahashuerus, Queen Esther, Mordechai and Haman. Of course, there needs to be an audience to boo and hiss whenever Haman’s name is said.

There are sure to be lots of laughter in small groups or large if this book is part of the Purim festivities.

Grade Level: K – 4th
