Shiny Sequin Bible By Tommy Nelson Publishing
The translation of this Bible is the International Children's Bible. This did make it easier for a child to understand verses throughout he Bible. I did also like the section that had verses aimed at areas such as, doing good, scripture memory, & happiness. However, I was a bit disappointed in the size of the font for young girls and I had expected it to be more of a study bible with more questions or easier reading. My niece is 8 years old and is in advanced reading classes so for her it is fine, however if anyone was much younger than this I think it would be quite difficult to read and use. I think it's fun for a first bible but not sure she'll keep it as she grows up and not sure she'll even use it much now. I think it would have been a lot better if the font was bigger and more of a study bible - even a few pictures throughout would have broken up the pages and made it more of an inviting Bible. I think this version is just to mature for young readers. However, I think this is aimed at younger girls - might be a good version to start with in elementary but will need something different as they grow and mature.
Thanks to Booksneeze for the complementary copy of this Bible for reviewing purposes
