A Bible for Your Girly Girl
My tween girl was all kinds of excited over her new Girls Slimline Bible that we received to review from Tyndale Blog Network. It has a fuzzy blue cover with the word "LOVE" in block letters complete with a heart for the "O". This is a girly girl Bible. I'm not a fan of glitter, but this Bible is edged in a glitter "look" whick won't leave sparkles all over my house so I'm good with it. This Holy Bible is in the NLT version.
It is a full Bible with the Old Testament and New Testament included in this slimline version. Even though this is a slimmer, easy to carry version, it includes eight pages of color maps. There are references throughout the Bible and the back contains a NLT Dictionary/ Concordance. There's also a 365 Day Reading Plan and a list of Great Verses to Memorize. The pages are edged in a pinkish purple color to continue the girly theme. It also holds an attached bookmark ribbon, and this is a red letter edition Bible.
As I said, Apple (11) was estatic over this Bible. She has faithfully been carrying it around with her. It fits in her favorite tote bag, but she says it is also easy to carry in hand. I've heard several of her friends "Ohh" and "Ahh" over it. I would have loved it at her age as well! She's been very faithful in her daily Bible reading and has done well learning her memory verses this semester. I told her this is just another version to add to her personal Bible study time. We did have to look up what the crosses at the end of verses mean in the NLT. I guess neither of us had noticed that in one before. It is just a reminder that there is a scripture reference at the end of the section.
This is a great Bible for tween girls to carry in boldness! It would make a lovely gift or a fun surprise for the end of the school year.
