What a precious Bible for a little girl!!
It comes in hardcover format so it will withstand lots use. 
This book  was designed for ages 7-11 which I feel is definitely appropriate.  
The dimensions are 8.50"x5.5" which is perfect for little hands. 
The front cover is pale blue in color with glitter which reminds me of snowflakes in winter.  There is a popular movie, Frozen, that almost all little girls have seen and I think they will immediately think of this movie when they look at the cover.  
As you open it the first page is a presentation page with the John 3:16 verse. 
The second page is to list a family history.  I think this is a very important page.
The next is a devotional "Why Should I Read the Bible" with 2 Timothy 3:16.  How wonderfully encouraging for a young child to hear the importance of reading a Bible.  It encourages a child to learn how to grow closer to God. 
There are other devotions spread out in the bible which cover other topics such as: 

  • How Do I Forgive?
  • How Can I Let God's Light Shine Through Me?
  • How Do I Study the Bible?
  • And more
Next comes beautiful illustrations of the timeline for the Bible.  The timeline goes from the beginning to how the church continues until the Lord returns.  
 The interior of the bible is the International Children's Bible, which is the first ever translation created just for kids.  The easily understandable text is designed for easy comprehension of children. There are also highlighted verses that will stand out and show importance. 
The back of the book includes a dictionary which is important when coming to a word that maybe they don't know or understand. The next section is called "Where Do I Find It" which gives book and versus where various stories can be found.  There are times I wish my bible contained this.  The next section, "What God Promises About" is a quick reminder of the promises God makes us and where they can be found in the bible, but more importantly it reminds us that God keeps his promises. 
(Psalm 145:13)
The last section is "Memory Verses for Life" which includes verses that are beneficial to remember.  
The last sections of the bible include:
The Names of God
The Miracles of Jesus
The Disciples
Kids of the Bible.
In the very back of the book are 4 pages of wonderfully illustrated maps. The first one shows the possible route of Abraham's journey, the second shows the possible wanderings until crossing the Jordan River, the third and fourth focus on Jesus and his week in Jerusalem and Palestine in his life. 

I think this is wonderfully designed for a child.
Not only is it beautiful on the outside, but it's inside is as equally appealing.
I think it was designed to not only encourage but inspire young ladies to seek a closer relationship with God.   I think any little girl would love owning one of these.  If my daughter were 7 instead of almost 20 I would definitely buy this for her.  
I would recommend it to anyone as a gift for a child.

  1. What version of the Bible is this?

    1. It is the International Children's Bible. It is written in easily understandable language. Thomas Nelson designed this specifically for children. Here's a quick example:
      Numbers 14:26-27
      The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "How long will these evil people complain about me? I have heard these Israelites' grumbling and complaining.
      I hope this helps.
