This was a Christmas gift for my 10 year old daughter. She is an avid reader and reads above her grade level (she's in 5th grade). She really likes it and enjoys reading it daily. She had requested an NIV, her previous Bible was an ICB. I gave it four stars because of the binding/cover. Over time I think these will not hold up well. I usually have to buy my children a Bible every few years to replace theirs so I am not real concerned about it.
My 9 year old granddaughter was going to Youth Camp for the first time. She told me that she didn't have a Bible so I went on Christianbook.com and decided on this one. I had her name engraved on it. She loved it! The colors and design of the cover are appealing to younger girls. I believe it is a good study Bible to help her grow in God's word and to apply His word in her life.
This is a perfect Bible for girls who are beyond childrens Bibles, but arent quite ready for a teen or heavy-duty study Bible. Id say this one would be great for ages 8-12. There are a ton of features in the layout of this NIV Bible, but one of the best aspects is that the features arent every 30 pages. The Young Women of Faith Bible has something fun on almost every page. This keeps things interesting and keeps the readers attention, especially through passages that may be difficult or dry.
My only criticism of this Bible is that Im not sure the cover and binding will wear well over time. However, using a Bible cover/case would solve this problem. Or you can purchase this beautiful leather-bound version: [...]
I would definitely recommend this well-organized, fun and attractive presentation of the Bible to preteen girls, who are ready to study beyond the simplified Bible stories they have learned in Sunday School. The Young Women of Faith Bible will help them dig deeper and encourage personal growth in their personal relationship with God.

I recently received a copy of the New International Version's Young Women of Faith Bible. As I looked through the pages I realized that this Bible would make a wonderful gift for a younger girl. Within the cute and colorful cover of this Bible are wonderful notes to help explain and apply the Scriptures to young girls. As you flip through the pages you see lots of the color pink. And wherever you see pink there will be some sort of study aid for those who are reading.
Here are some examples of the type of notes that you will find within the pages of this Bible:
* "If I Were there_" These attempt to help put you in the shoes of those involved in the Bible story. They help you to relate to and understand the situation that they are in.
* "I Believe" These are simple, short statements found on various pages. They clearly state key beliefs and truths that are found within the scriptures, such as "Jesus is alive."
* Memory Verses Throughout the scriptures, this Bible frequently points out verses that it suggests for memorization. This can be a wonderful tool for young girls!
There are also lists of facts and answers to questions before each book of the Bible, as well as weekly devotions and journaling sections throughout the pages.
Overall, I would say this this Bible for young ladies is both cute and practical. It has girly, feminine pages, but those pages hold notes that help the readers to understand and apply God's word to their own lives.
I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. However, my opinions are my own.
