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.

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.

Rt. Hon. Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP

This excellent children’s book tells the story of a wonderful woman, Queen Elizabeth, whose enduring faith in God has helped her provide strong leadership to our nation for some 70 years. She is a shining example of how God can guide and help us when we seek to follow Him and serve the needs of others just as Jesus did.

Linda Allcock

Author, Deeper Still

Packed full of fun facts, fascinating snippets of history and deeply moving extracts from the queen’s speeches, this book manages to be both inspirational and informative. The extraordinary courage God gave Queen Elizabeth II to point a nation to Christ through her words and actions clearly demonstrates that the heart of the monarch is in the hands of God.

“Highlights the faith of a leader”

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.

“Inspiring Story”

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.

“Women Who Lived for God”

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.

“Go for it!”

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.
