This sweet picture book features the stories of fourteen women and girls from the Bible. Each story includes a lift-the-flap envelope with a special "Love Letter from God" offering a heart-warming message that turns the key themes of the story into a personal message for your girl. Intended as a read-aloud to girls ages four and up, the personal messages even include a fill-in-the-blank spot where you can say the name of the girl you're reading the story to, so it can feel extra-special to her.
Each page also includes a key verse labeled as "God's Wonderful Words to You." For example Rahab's story shares Isaiah 46:4, "I will take good care of you."
I love the way this book highlights the fact that girls are important to God, and their stories are in the Bible, too. I think it can be easy for girls to always just hear the stories in Sunday School about famous boys from the Bible like David, Joseph, Moses, Abraham, etc. and feel like there's not really a place for girls in God's story. This book helps show the importance of unfortunately often overlooked stories like Miriam, Deborah, Hannah, Naaman's servant girl, and many more, as well as the well-known ones like Eve, Esther, and Mary.
One of my favorite parts of this book are the titles given to each story. For example Rahab is "The Brave Girl," Hannah is "The Hopeful Girl," and the Samaritan woman at the well is "The Thirsty Girl." Part of what I love about these titles is the wonderful context that's given. Rahab isn't "the harlot" and Eve isn't "the apple eater." In fact, Eve is "The First Girl," and her story focuses on how God delighted to make her. Yes, it tells us how the serpent whispered to her and she ate the apple, but then it reiterates God's love, making sure we know that after everything, God still gave her new, warm clothes. Eve's story tells us, "And as Eve walked away, she knew she was forever covered in God's love and forgiveness. God had made her, and she was good." The love letter on that page reiterates that God made each of us and delights in us, and forgives us, too. :)
I feel like these stories are so important, and written and illustrated so beautifully, that this is a book every little girl should have in her library. There are honestly very few books that I would say this about, but if you have a young daughter, go buy this book right now and read it to her. You can thank me later. ;)
Young girls too have their doubts, but like Barak have a lot to learn about becoming strong and confident. Judge Deborah had “so much to teach [Baral] about staying calm and trusting in God.” Children will learn in the story about Judge Deborah words of encouragement in Isaiah 30:15 and will also be able to read a letter from God. The conclusion of this letter states that we must “Be calm. Be confident. Be strong. Trust in me.” This is one of several stories that speak to the hearts of young girls everywhere.
This is a wonderfully encouraging book that will delight young readers, helping them not only learn about women in the Bible, but also themselves. Each tale is accompanied by a sidebar with an appropriate Bible verse and a lift-the-flap letter from God that can be personalized on the address line. Stories include women from the Bible, Eve, Miriam, Rahab, Deborah, Hannah, Naaman’s servant girl, Esther, Mary the mother of Jesus, the Samaritan woman at the well, a woman caught in sin, Martha, the poor widow, the tale or Mary anointing Jesus’ feet, Mary Magdalene at the resurrection, and a very special place for children to write their own personal letter to God.
