Review: Girls Slimline NLT Bible

When my son received his Boys Slimline Bible, we were very impressed with it. I went ahead and ordered the Girls Slimline Bible, as well. I wasn't sure if my 10 year old daughter would like its bright colors, fuzzy cover, and glittery edges. If she didn't, I thought I would save it for my 5 year old daughter when she was older. But, my ten year old daughter loved the Bible!

The Boys Slimline Bible has a faux leather cover, but the Girls Slimline Bible has a hardcover with a fuzzy cloth feel to it.The pink LOVE has a green edging around the letters, and the back cover says Bold Faith on it. Although my daughter loves this Bible now, I'm not sure she'll love it when she's 12-14. I do wish the cover was more mature like the Guys NLT Slimline Bible.

My daughter was surprisingly excited about the red-letter edition, and the maps in the back of the Bible. My only complaint with this Bible is that the font is a little bit small - though I realize that is necessary in a slimline edition.

I wasn't sure how I would feel about the New Living Translation when I ordered these, but I like it. It's easy to read and understand, without losing the true meaning of the Scriptures. We're very pleased with this Bible and my daughter is loving using it at church!
