I received a copy of the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls from Zondervan (HarperCollins Christian Publishing) for this review. This post is sponsored by Zondervan.
I really like this Bible!
It has a fun cover that has a leather-like feel yet it has a hard binding that seems like it would hold up to a little bit of abuse, which I am assuming it will get at the hands of a younger girl.
I also like the way it lays pretty flat – with as many pages as it has, though, flat is a relative term. As mentioned in the description, the paper is a little thicker than in my other Bibles and seems like it would hold up well to note taking and coloring.
The verses for coloring are well distributed throughout the Bible. The pages that do not have verses are ruled in the margins which would make it very nice for note-taking. I will note that the lines are fairly small, maybe college-ruled. Personally, I love that, though I imagine it might be a little difficult to stay in the lines for a younger child.
There are standard NIV footnotes on each of the pages but no other study guides. In fact, other than the NIV introduction, the only other “guide” is a table of weights and measures at the end. There are no maps or concordance.
Though it is designed for girls up to age 12, I can see older teens and young adults enjoying it as well. I’m actually wondering if I want one for myself! Of course, Zondervan figured that out and has several versions of the Bible for different ages.
