What I felt the book was missing was a bible reading plan. I am not sure why it didn’t have one, but as a child ventures into their first real bible and not a kids reader bible, they should have a simple plan in there for them to follow.
Another thing I wish it had was a similar setup to the Answers bible. That is a book that has helped me in my religious struggled; especially when I have questions about faith. But, it also helps when it comes to answers and questions for guilt, self esteem, depression, sadness, and every other emotion you could think of. Having that in a pre teen aged bible would have been perfect, especially for this one.
All-in-all if you are in the market for a girls age appropriate bible and your child is 10-13, I think this would be a wonderful tool for them on their spiritual, growth, and (hormonal girl) life journey.
While kiddo hasn’t read a bunch of the actual biblical text, she is reading a lot of the tidbits that are located throughout the book. She finds that information interesting and will seek out more on her own.
Because I am not a very religious person (my husband grew up in a religious household,) what she takes from it is up to her. We can only encourage her to be a good person and live the best life she can.
