Inspiring children’s biography of Queen Elizabeth II highlighting the Christian faith that underpinned her remarkable reign.
Part of the Do Great Things For God series.
Princess Elizabeth never expected to be Queen. But when she was ten, her uncle, King Edward VIII, abdicated and everything changed… Her father took over as King, but after 15 years on the throne, he died. So when she was just 25 years old, Elizabeth was crowned Queen and became the longest-serving monarch in British history.
This inspiring children’s biography of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) chronicles key moments in her life. It also highlights her Christian faith, in particular what she has said in her Christmas Day speeches.
Young children will learn more about the incredible life and faith of Britain’s longest-serving monarch and they will be inspired about the great things they can do for God.
Suitable for children aged 4-7.
Written by Alison Mitchell, who has authored many children’s books, including the award-winning The One O’Clock Miracle, and Jesus and The Lions' Den. Illustrated by Emma Randall whose previous works include Diary of a Disciple: Luke's Story.
This series shows young children how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things by exploring the lives of Christian women who did great things for God.

There is only one person that the Queen addresses as "Your Majesty", and in this wonderful book we discover who that is and why she does that.
Inspire your kids with the life of Queen Elizabeth II. This engaging story reveals her life ambition—to serve Jesus Christ, her “Saviour” and “anchor.”
A lovely, concise celebration of Queen Elizabeth and her faith!
I love this series for highlighting many different types of service to God, from missionaries to standing strong in war to serving for the greater good. And that is the story that is told of Queen Elizabeth II. Giving a concise bio of her life and the circumstances that led to her taking the throne, kids are introduced to a woman who spent her entire life in service to another - something every follower of Christ is called to do, from the highest monarchy to the lowest servant.
I love reading this book to my 2 year old, and she loves it! She will pick it out from her book basket and ask to read the "Queen book." I am so thankful for this series as a positive alternative to Disney princesses.
I am excited to give 7 of these books to my granddaughter for her birthday. They show how these women lived their lives for Jesus and were lights to the world they were called.
Our 8-yr-old granddaughter is an avid reader. She loves this book.
The book I purchased for my great neice is very good for children as a remembrance of our dear queen . It shows how much she respected the bible and depended on the Lord , who was her saviour and counsellor.
Very happy with books.
Suitable for children under 8. Gives an information review of the Queen’s life and her Christian faith.
Have not ordered many books online. Found the good book a great experience. Easy to follow website. Easy payment options and fast delivery.
I no longer have the book in front of me as a reference, as it was eagerly received by a small posse of grandchildren. I do know, however, that this small book is pleasing in big ways. The authors skilfully present a serious topic with an appealing lightness of heart, missing nothing (it seems to me) of significance; handling appropriately things less than meritorious; & effectively embracing a range of participants from the very young (the graphics are 'just right') all the way to the very old, who would love to be thought wise, & discover in these pages a very pleasurable way of becoming better informed! I'm grateful to the authors.
We loved reading this as a family and it was easy to give away to friends too. Perfect Jubilee book, thank you!
