This is a devotional-type book designed for young girls. I gave it to my friend's 10 year old daughter, and she really appreciated it. There are sections for many of the emotions that a girl encounters on a daily basis, along with verses that apply to each of those emotions. I also would have liked a different version of the Bible to have been used, either NIV or KJV or ESV. However, for a young girl, this version works as a supplement to her daily reading.
It's a cute little book for children, it has a hardcover and it's designed very attractively for little kids.
This book is structured into 7 big chapters - God's promises for different situations or encouragement for different behaviors (God wants you to _)
Each page starts with a little poem and then 3 or 4 verses are introduced to emphasize the topic and at the bottom of the page there is a cute illustration that exemplifies everything that was told before.
I personally liked the book and I think it is perfect for preschoolers. It is really easy to read, to follow and to understand. I also love the idea of structuring into topics because that makes it interesting and easy to memorize as well. And the cute illustrations, makes it even more appealing for little girls.
I am convinced that this book is a perfect tool for parents to teach their kids precious bible lessons so that they can understand and use them, and also to fall in love with the word of God starting from early ages, therefore I totally recommend it.
God's Promises for Girls by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker is an amazing book! I haven't got children yet but I will definetely use this book when I have. In my opinion is this book a very good start how to speak with little girls about God and His place in their lives and how to get them interested in the Bible. And the illustrations are amazing! On each page you can find nice picture, title and Bible verse which is connected with the topic. Verses are from the International Children's BibleÂ® so children can understand better. It is done for whole bunch of situations in life - when the girl is scared, lonely, afraid of something, sad, worried, angry or things like trusting in God, feeling like a princess... It is most likely for girls aged 7-10 or maybe less. I love this book!
I would highly recommend it to everyone who has little girl.

This childrens book is a collection of bible verses separated by topic. The book is most likely appropriate for girls 8-11. Each section normally begins with a picture and then a question or phrase relating to the topic. It is then followed by a collection of bible verses.When I chose this book I was expecting a good reference book for girls. One where if they had an issue they could look up a topic and find applicable biblical truths. However, I was surprised to find that I personally did not like this book. They got their verses from the International Childrens Bible. The wording for the verses was at times awkward and not clear. It was hard to understand the point they wanted the girls to see on each topic. I felt like the verses they used for certain topics were irrelevant. I would have liked the book a lot better if the verses were more relevant to the topics.I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com.
