Esther: The Belle of Patience. If you have not read, I encourage you to do so.
Erin Weidemann has done it again! The third book in the Bible Belles series is about Abigail: The Belle of Bravery.
About the series:
The Bible Belles is a five book series based on women of the Bible. Erin is using the acronym H.E.A.R.D. for the series. H is a book on Hannah, E is a book on Esther, and A is a book on Abigail, R will be on Ruth, and D will be on Deborah. The series acronym is based on Exodus 28:35 ~ The sound of the bell(e)s will be heard.
When I wrote my last review, I didn't realize that the character in the book was named after Erin's own daughter. (You can read about how the Bible Belles got it's start here) Rooney, with the help of her guardian angel Mari, is able to learn from the women in the Bible and earn that woman's superpower. The different superpowers are prayer, patience, bravery, loyalty, and leadership.
The story starts out with Rooney, her friend Dani, and her brother Sam playing outside. Sam is having a difficult day and is being mean to some new neighbors. Rooney is praying to figure out what she can do to help her brother. Mari, the guardian angel, shows up and takes Rooney to see how Abigail would handle the situation. Rooney sees that Abigail lives with her husband who is not a nice person and is not willing to help David. One of Abigail's servants goes to Abigail to see if she can help. Will she help David? Will she be able to feed him and his men? Is she really a brave woman? Did Rooney earn the bravery superpower? Get the book and find out!
What my girls thought:
My girls are eleven and five and they both enjoy these Bible books that are geared just for girls. My older daughter is able to read the books to her younger sister and it gives them a bond. We also love how each story is illustrated perfectly. My youngest daughter loves Supergirl, but I'd rather her have Abigail and other women of the Bible as her superheroes. I also love that there is a devotional that goes along with the Abigail book. And don't forget the coloring pages.
