You may know that I really love the Word of God and enjoy receiving newly packaged Bibles to review here on the blog. Well this week I have not one, but two Bible’s to tell you about. Today, I have a new children’s Bible that I think will be a super delightful gift for one of my grand daughters. As a matter of fact, I am thinking about buying a couple more copies as I have several grand daughters!
Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible
The Sparkle and Change Bible is packaged in a teal blue or pink cover. The cover of the Bible has embossed detailing, and sequins that change color right before your eyes. I have caught my teens handling this book, and running their hands over the sequins. It is definitely eye catching and fun.
This Bible is set in ten-point type, with bold in-text subject titles. This will help kids find the passages they are looking for more easily. There are bold type words that correspond with the dictionary and the concordance. And as always, I appreciate the maps and timeline that are included.
There are pretty pages that include a presentation page, a place to record favorite verses and articles to increase a child’s understanding of Jesus’ love and purpose for her.
The translation of this Bible is the International Children’s Bible by Tommy Nelson. This translation was created for children, for readability and understanding. This is a good translation for children between about 6 and 10 to use in his/her own reading and following along in Sunday School and church.
One thing I’d recommend is that you don’t have your child memorize in this translation. Choose the translation that your family, or your church teaches from… and memorize from it. From experience I know the challenge of memorizing in one translation…and it not meshing with the memory work in the teen and early adult years.
My photos just don’t do this Bible cover justice. It is quite pretty and very sparkly. Thank you to Front Gate Media and Tommy Nelson for this free Bible in exchange for this post.
