The NIV FaithGirlz! Bible, Revised Edition bible for kids makes reading the bible fun for girls. The FaithGirlz bible was developed especially for girls ages 9 to 12 and has been a bestseller since it was first released in 2007. It’s written for the tween audience with a focus on girls interests, such as friends, family and sharing faith.
Instead of the typical black and white bible, girls will discover scripture written in purple with hot pink accent colors. This bible for girls is filled with colorful pages and art. Drawings of flowers, butterflies, birds and fun doodle shapes add character to the book.
Each book of the bible begins with an introduction highlighting the main topics and life application. There are some fun features included as well. The Dream Girl feature will help her imagine herself in some of the most familiar and amazing bible stories. Bring It On! is a cute feature of bible quizzes with related scripture verses to examine. Oh, I Get It! offers answers to biblical questions. Treasure This! is a cute scrapbook style design with a scripture verse to treasure. Is there a little (blank) in you? lets you see for yourself what bible character traits you might have. Finally, a feature called In Your Own Words allows the reader to apply her own meaning of the scripture passage.
Example from the book: tween girls might enjoy reading the section “is there a little Joseph’s brothers in you?” followed by these questions:
- Have you ever had your brother constantly tell your parents every little thing you did?
- Have you ever felt like your parents were playing favorites with your sibling?
- Have you ever gotten so fed up with it all, you thought up evil schemes and sort of wished you could carry then out?
“If you answered yes to any of these, you can see why Joseph’s brothers sold him and claimed he was dead. It was totally wrong, but so human. God can help us treat our family right. Genesis 37:3-27”
The FaithGirlz bible is so cute, I think I’m going to be borrowing it from my daughters. Reading it reminds me I’m a princess and Daughter of the King. The only drawback to FaithGirlz the is the physical weight of the book. I found the FaithGirlz hardcover version to be heavy (2.2 pounds per Amazon) and difficult to lift with just one hand.
My Amazon Rating 5/5
