Sequin Bible - Pink, Not too Great

I actually got this in paperback form, which I think is really smart for young girls. They can be more kid-like in how they carry it and it is less heavy so that means less chance of dropping it! This was part of my participation in from Thomas Nelson publishers.

This arrived and it was just so adorable and cute, I knew the little girl who was almost old enough to start bringing a Bible to Her church, would ADORE it!

I was saddened to note that there wasn't really any "help" in this cute Bible. I assumed since it is for children, it would have either summaries of what each chapter meant, or something, but it didn't. It just would have made sense, being for kids, that they could understand what they were reading. They messed around with the language a bit, but I felt not enough to help young kids GET the Bible.

So while being pretty on the outside, I ended up feeling it was not enough in the inside. So while it may be a good "starter" Bible to give children as they are first asked to bring a Bible to class on Sundays, I would suggest finding alternatives so they really understand what they are reading.
