NIV Faithgirlz! Bible, Revised Edition
there are lots of extras
Lots of features like the read a bible in a year check off list.
Also there are questions and activites that lead to further in depth review for my daughter to explore the bible more than whe would otherwise. It is not just a church accessory, she loves opening it and delving deeper with the little helps along the way. We had reservations about using a non King James version, but we found a little explination along the way of the differences is better than her reading a 'forgien' language that is just harder to understand these days for her generation, and giving up and not reading one at all, and it will lead to her eventulally getting to the King James version as she grows older. Also it helps us to be more a part of her bible study.

I bought this bible for my granddaughter who just started coming to church with me. I think its a great bible and will help her learn about Jesus.

My daughter loves it!
Review by Jill Williamson
Cute cover. My daughter loves it. At eight, sheÃ¢ÂÂs a little young for the Ã¢ÂÂOh I get itÃ¢ÂÂ sidebars and Ã¢ÂÂDream GirlÃ¢ÂÂ devotionals, but she likes the Ã¢ÂÂIs There a Little Wise Kid in YouÃ¢ÂÂ ones and the sporadic quizzes. I like that thereÃ¢ÂÂs a brief intro page at the beginning of each book that explains in kid terms what the book is about and gives some highlights. I love that she has the same NIV version of the Word that I have, so we can each read from our own bibles and have the same text.
This is a bible she can grow up with and love until the cover wears off. And I think that someday she will read those longer sidebars and devotional passages and really enjoy them because they are deep and thoughtful.

A Bible for Tweenagers!
The deep pink with contrasting flowers gives this Bible a feminine look, and is eye-catching and frillyÃ¢ÂÂjust the Bible a young girl would love to have! The contrasting light pink, purple, white, and black emboldens the title.
The red violet and purple writing inside are colors most girls would love. ItÃ¢ÂÂs attractive and attention-getting, especially when contrasted with the different features interspersed throughout. All these designs help to catch the eyes and minds of young girls, with the goal to challenge them to read and apply the Word of God to their lives.
I especially love all the different features listed below, as they prompt a more active role on the part of the girls to grow stronger in the Lord and be a doer of His Word!
Here are the features included:
Book IntroductionsÃ¢ÂÂGirls will read the who, when, where, and what of each book of the Bible.
Dream GirlÃ¢ÂÂGirls will use their imaginations to put themselves in the story.
Bring it on!Ã¢ÂÂQuizzes to really get to know yourself.
Is There a Little (Eve, Ruth, Isaiah) in You?Ã¢ÂÂGirls will see for themselves what they have in common with people of the Bible.
What Happens Next?Ã¢ÂÂCreating a list of events to tell the story in your own words.
Words to Live ByÃ¢ÂÂGirls will discover great Bible verses for memorizing.
Oh, I Get It!Ã¢ÂÂGirls will find answers to Bible questions theyÃ¢ÂÂve wondered about.
At the end of the Bible is a list of the following:
How to Begin a Relationship with Jesus
A Yearly reading guide (IÃ¢ÂÂd use a pencil so you can use it every year.)
A List of Promises From the Bible
Perspectives From the BibleÃ¢ÂÂÃ¢ÂÂWhat the Bible says aboutÃ¢ÂÂ
Several pages for personal notes
The Faithgirlz! Bible has been written for tweens between the ages of 9-12. As a parent, I would love a Bible like this to challenge my daughter(s) to grow stronger in the Lord and be a doer of His Word!
A great gift just in time for Easter!
