Book Review: God's Promises for Girls
The Bible verses in this book are taken from the International Children's Bible. The Bible verses from this translation are in modern English and will be easy for young readers to grasp. This translation is not Catholic, but I found nothing in this book that was contrary to Catholic teaching. If I had, I wouldn't have passed it on to my daughters.
My children, ages 8 1/2 and nearly 5, like this book. The youngest child likes looking at the adorable and very vibrant illustrations. Think modern Precious moments with bold colors. My 8 1/2 year old daughter read a few sections of the books and thought it was very nice. So I'd say it gets the little girl seal of approval.
This book would make a nice gift for a little girl. There's a dedication page in this book that makes it perfect for gift giving.
