My Review:
 Shopping for a Bible is never easy, I have shopped and shopped only to change my mind and continue to shop for months afterward. I being the mom of our family am the one designated to do the Bible shopping in our family. Not to mention the fact that by next year my husband will be a minister and the 30 some odd Bibles we have now will just be a glimpse into what that pile will look like after we add a few more.

 Several years ago I purchased the older version of this same Bible for my then 10 year old daughter. She was then at that age, old enough to have a more adult version of the Bible but not quite the adult version and we have been happy with it ever since. Of course now, I have bought her an adult Bible but this Bible will definitely serve its purpose in your young daughters life for the time being. The editor was sure to include items to encourage the young girl reader to engage with that prominent female in her life. There are several things to choose from but none should be left out.

Designed for girls aged 8-12 this is the perfect gift for that young girl in her life that needs something especially designed for her. It includes many things to uplift and encourage and possibly inspire her to reach new levels in her walk with God.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Book Look.
