If you’d like a cute book for your little girls that help teach them to be strong, speak up for themselves, and be faithful, you can’t go wrong with Bible Belle’s The Adventures of Rooney Cruz.  There will eventually be five books in this series covering five Bible heroines: Hannah, Esther, Abigail, Ruth, and Deborah.  We had the opportunity to read the second book in the series, Esther: The Belle of Patience.

This short book tells the story of Rooney Cruz who is frustrated that her soccer teammate, Amanda, hogs the ball and won’t let anyone else on the team try to score a goal.

Rooney is joined on field by her angel, Mari.  Mari takes Rooney back in time to let her see the most important events in Esther’s life, including when Esther must confront Haman, the king’s second in command, and let the king know that Haman has deceived him.  Before Esther takes this bold action, she prays for three days to know what to say and when to say it.

After seeing this scene, Rooney is inspired to pray and approach her coach at the right time to let him know about Amanda’s behavior.
