Queen Esther Bible verse free printables for kids

Beautiful, obedient and courageous, the true life story of Hadassah, or Esther as we often know her, is an incredible story of a brave orphan who grew up to become a queen and a hero to her people. What a fabulous role model for our girls. The book of Esther in the Bible has always fascinated me. God’s name is not mentioned, but incredible coincidences just ‘seem to happen’ out of the blue. Just for fun one day, make a list of them all. However, the discerning reader will see God’s hand behind the scenes, clearly orchestrating all these seemingly unrelated events, just as He does in our lives and in the lives of our sponsored children.

QUEEN ESTHER ~ DEVOTIONALS / BOOKS / INFORMATION

Esther – devotional  (whatsinthebible) free printable

Esther – devotional  free printable

My kids loved the Manga Comic Book Bibles (for purchase) that I cut up and sent to them. It makes the Bible come alive as it tells the story of the universe in manga form that keeps kids/teens and adults :) riveted. Buy and send a few pages at a time. Or an excellent gift idea for a sponsor visit. I have only seen two of the books, but I think Book 3 Manga Messengers (scroll down) will be the one to have the story of Esther. It picks up from the time of King Solomon to the decline and eventual exile of Israel.

Esther – cartoon booklet  (number 30) in colour or to colour (CB); big (story – 24 pages) or small (tract – 2 page); in very bright primary colours; and if you click on the ‘other languages’ box at the top of the page, a menu will drop down – e.g. Spanish; French; Portuguese; Hindi; Kinyarwanda; Swahili; Amharic; and many more; free printable
