Bible stories are full of adventure and courageous characters. However many that feature women and girls are not told so often.

These twelve Bible stories have been specially selected as they feature strong, inspiring girls. Some are funny, some make you think, and some – like the story of Queen Esther – keep you on the edge of your seat with scares and surprises. Meet quick-thinking Miriam, unflappable Abigail, and determined Lydia as well as other stories from the books of Numbers, Judges, Ruth, 2 Kings, and the Gospels of Luke and John. Amy Scott Robinson’s distinctive voice, expertise and experience as a performance storyteller makes this a unique and fascinating collection, aimed at readers aged 7-9 years. At the end of each story, Amy shares a bit about where the story is found in the Bible, how she has retold it, and what the story makes her think about when she is hearing or telling it. These Bible stories deserve to be told as often as the more well-known ones. Enjoy the adventure!
