My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t think I have gotten this excited over a Bible in awhile. The cover is a hardback with a magnetic flap that serves as a closure. Just look at the cover! It’s cute and sparkly, and feminine without being over the top, and let’s face it, these days, preteen girls need some bling to get them away from the phones, TV and internet. When I saw it, I couldn’t wait to show it to my soon to be tween. Even she got excited about it.

The Bible itself has some great features that are right in the language perfect for pre-teens to understand. My daughter loved taking one of the quizzes that are found throughout the Bible, where each answer corresponds to a Scripture passage to address that problem. She also loved reading the “Is There a Little (insert Bible character here) In You”? It was refreshing for her to think that these were characters in the Bible she could relate to, instead of boring, dry characters without a third dimension to them. Overall, this is a great Bible to get for your pre-teen girl.
