Meet Me at the Well: The Girls and Women of the Bible by Jane Yolen, Barbara Diamond Goldin
Illustrator: Vali Mintzi
Old Testament stories center around men. Leaders, prophets, kings, and priests are all male. But hidden in the background are strong-willed, daring females.
Jane Yolen and Barbara Diamond Goldin’s masterful retellings pairs eloquent profiles with stunning art, answering one question: What makes these women heroes? From first woman, Eve, to Deborah the judge, to Queen Esther, savior of her people, females in the Hebrew bible are resourceful and courageous.
