Book Review- ICB Purple Pearl Princess Bible





Title: ICB Purple Pearl Princess Bible
Version: International Children's Bible Translation
Format: Hardcover
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Bibles


This hardcover Bible was made for your little princess!  The cover is decorated with purple, a tiara, glitter and 3-dimensional pearls.  There are 24 full color pages inside designed to help with further study for your little girl. 


But what makes this Bible different than other princess Bibles?  This was the first time that I read the International Children's Bible version.  I was really impressed with it for younger school aged children.  It is written at a third grade reading level yet stays completely true to the meaning of the Word of God. 


 As a fifth grade teacher in a Christian School, I can see how difficult it is sometimes for students to read from the KJV and others.  This ICB version may just be the solution to that problem!

Book Review: God Bless Our Country



Title: God Bless Our Country
Author: Hannah C. Hall
Illustrator: Steve Whitlow
Genre: Juvenile Christian Fiction


God Bless Our Country is a Christian board book designed to teach children about patriotism and celebrating this great country that we live in.  The book is written in catchy rhyme that will entertain toddlers and preschoolers.  

The author chose to take an interesting route by choosing to make the characters on each page animals instead of humans.  I think this will increase the interest level for the little ones.  They will also enjoy the colorful and whimsical drawings that accompany the rhymes on each page. 

This sturdy and durable hardcover board book will be able to withstand what the most destructive toddlers can dish out which will make any parent happy.  Parents will also enjoy how the author has given the credit to God for all the treasures that we have been given in our beautiful land. 

You can purchase the book on Amazon for $9.99

Book Review: I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook



Title: I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook
Subtitle: Imagining God's Story Through Motion and Play
Author: Judah and Chelsea Smith
Illustrator: Alexandra Ball
Genre: Juvenile Religious Studies/ Bible Stories

Another Bible storybook?  Do I really need another?  Isn't this going to be the same as all of the others? That is what I was thinking when I received this book to review. 

Here are the features of this book:

*There are gorgeous illustrations to accompany the Bible stories from both the Old and New Testament.

*There is a sturdy hardcover with a presentation page for personalization and gift giving

*Ribbon bookmark attached to the book 


What makes this storybook different?
 After every few stories there are pages called "I Will Follow Jesus."  These pages are devotionals written by the authors to encourage your child to apply the Bible stories that they just heard.   These pages also include a prayer to help your child get started in a conversation with God. 

This is not just a Bible storybook- it is a starting point for your child to build a relationship with Jesus! I recommend this book for preschool and early elementary aged children.

Book Review: The Play-Along Bible


Title: The Play-Along Bible
Subtitle: Imagining God's Story Through Motion and Play
Author: Bob Hartman
Illustrator: Susie Poole
Genre: Juvenile Religious Studies/ Bibles

My almost four year old daughter Ella loved the Play-Along Bible!  

Before we even had a chance to read it to her, my daughter loved looking at it on her own during her "nap" time in her bed.  The colorful and kid-friendly illustrations invited her into the book. There were 50 carefully chosen stories from the Old and New Testament that each had a beautiful drawing to accompany it.

At bedtime, my husband always reads to my daughter.  She has several different Bibles and devotionals that we have used.   What was different about this book was the multi-sensory approach.  Each story had motions that the parent models as they are reading to encourage the child to participate with during the story. 

For example, while reading the story of Noah,  in parentheses the book guides the parent by telling them when to encourage the child to make animal noises, slap their hands on their legs to make the sound of the rain coming down, pretend they are hammering like Noah building the ark and more!

I highly recommend this book for toddlers and preschoolers. If you have children this age or know someone who does.  Purchase them this book!  It is a great way to enhance their understanding of God's Word at a young age!

Book Review: Big Dreams Big Prayers Bible for Kids - NIV



Title: Big Dreams, Big Prayers Bible for Kids
Version: NIV Hardcover
Publisher: Zondervan
Genre: Bible
 
The Big Dreams, Big Prayers Bible for Kids is finally a Bible that is specifically designed for use by children in the 10-12 year old age group.  This edition of the Bible is a hardcover New International Version of the Holy Bible. 

As a fifth grade teacher in a Christian School, I have the privilege of teaching Bible class to 10 and 11 year old boys and girls. It is often difficult for children that age to fully understand what they are reading in the Bible and connect with God's Word.  

This hardcover complete text NIV edition of the Bible contains several features that make it appealing to this pre-teen age group:


*Each book of the Bible contains an introduction that explains details about that book of the Bible that are helping in understanding the verse to come. For example, Who wrote this book?  Why was this book written?  When was this written?  Where was this written? and more

*There is a reading plan to assist children in reading through the Bible.

*There are devotional pages for a more in depth study of several passages in each book of the Bible. 

*There are highlighted passages to help children understand prayer.

*There are prayer journaling pages with a space to record prayer requests and answers to prayer.

I recommend this Bible for anyone looking for a Bible fora child that is too old for a children's picture Bible and too young for a teen or adult Bible.  It is the perfect Bible for children 10-14 years old. 


You can purchase The Big Dreams, Big Prayers Bible for Kids at Amazon for $23.02.

Book Review: Love Without Limits



Title: Love Without Limbs
Subtitle: A Remarkable Story of True Love Conquering All
Author: Nick Vujicic with Kanae Vujicic
Genre: Religious/Inspirational
 
 
This is the third Nick Vujicic book that I have read for review.  I continue to be inspired! 
 
If you aren't familiar with Nick's story, Nick was born without any limbs.  He has no arms and no legs.  One would think that he has a miserable and stagnant life.  How could he possibly thrive like that?  The answer is through the power of Jesus Christ! 
 
Nick a Born Again Christian that shares his faith around the world.  Nick encourages all those around him to love the life that God has given them.  We were all created with a purpose.  He understands the trials that we all face and he reminds us to look to the Lord as our strength. 
 
In this book, "Love Without Limits," Nick shares how he met and married his wife Kanae.   They share how they overcame the skepticism of those around them that doubted that their relationaship could be successful.  
 
Nick and Kanae also share the benefits of a Christian courtship and what it is like to date "God's way" and set your marriage up for success.  They are candid in sharing about the challenges they face with the unique nature of their relationship. They share the struggles that they faced initially with Nick traveling the world as an evangelist while Kanae was hope with their newborn son Kiyoshi.

I recommend this book to young adults contemplating dating relationships or marriage. Nick and Kanae's story is encouraging and inspirational!



You can read my review of Nick's book "Stand Strong" here. You can purchase Stand Strong on Amazon for $10.98.



You can read my review of Nick's book "Limitless" here.   You can purchase Limitless on Amazon for $13.59.

Book Review: NIV, God's Justice Bible- Hardcover Edition



Title: NIV, God's Justice Bible, Hardcover
Subtitle: The Flourishing of Creation & the Destruction of Evil 
Contributor: Tim Stafford
Genre: Bibles

The NIV God's Justice Bible contains the full text of the Holy Bible in the New International English Language Version.  This edition of the Bible is hardcover with a paper book jacket. 

You may be thinking that you already own enough Bibles in your house.  You may be asking, 

"How is this Bible different than other Bibles that you may already own?" 


*This edition connects the theme of God's justice throughout the entire Bible.

*Each book of the Bible contains an introduction that is written by one of 56 Biblical scholars, writers and activists from around the world that are passionate about justice.

*There are Questions for Reflection at the end of every Book of the Bible. 

*There is a relevant prayer at the end of every book of the Bible.

*There are study notes in this Bible about the problems of injustice in our world: governmental oppression, human trafficking, slavery, financial inequality and others.


I recommend this Bible for anyone that cares deeply about the injustices in the world.  The study notes and the commentaries in this Bible will address God's plan to restore His creation.  You will be able to not only learn about the scriptures but be able to look at them from a new perspective.  

This Bible is beautifully designed with images of colorful trees on the cover that also carry throughout all of the pages in the Bible. I do think that if you plan to use the Bible frequently that the paper book jacket will probably not be able to hold up long term.   That would be alright since the hardcover Bible itself also has the same design on the front.
