This Bible is also available in blue for Tween boys

Thank you to Tyndale for my free copy for reading/reviewing.

I felt that the first thing that stands out about this new Bible for tween girls is that it is personal, approachable.
There are sections in this Bible that speak directly to the person reading the Bible. The sections are on self-image, and being valued and loved by God.
I did not feel that the Bible is presented in a dorky kind of way, but would be pleasing to a tween.
(Is the word dorky showing my own age?)
There are several photo's of tweens in the Bible, both boys and girls.
There are smart phone codes to find out more information about the Bible.
The translation is New Living Translation---this translation is easy to read and understand.
In the front of the Bible is further study type stuff---What is the Bible, Finding Your Identity in Jesus, Growing In Faith, and The Bible Talks About (a variety of subjects).
The Bible is small. I have a small hand and it is the length of it----about 6 1/2 inches long and about 4 1/2 inches wide.
Not a red letter edition.
There are some references located at the bottom of each Scripture page.
The print is tiny, too tiny for my eyes, but maybe okay for tweens.
Overall I felt this would be a great Bible for tween girls and I can't wait to give it as a gift!

Blissful Reading!
Annette
