A sparkly, fun treasure for young girls to cherish as they grow spiritually!

These beautifully crafted Holy Bibles are not only gorgeous and well designed, they’re an invaluable gift and resource to young girls as they seek to read God’s word, learn how to pray, grow in Jesus and deepen their relationship with the One who created them!


A ★★★★★ Review of the Sparkle and Change Holy Bible for Girls | Available in Various Versions Including International Children's Bible and New King James Version!

★★★★★ | What better gift can a young girl receive than the Word of God in a format she can relate to, understand and feel empowered by? I distinctly remember receiving my first Bible, shortly after I asked Jesus to come into my life at age six. I still have that little white Bible to this day, it’s cover worn, pages ear marked and Scriptures highlighted or underlined from years of Bible drills and Sunday School.

Flipping through these beautiful new Bibles brought back floods of memories and encouraged me as I eagerly anticipate the day when my daughter is old enough to read and hold God’s Word in her little hands. The Sparkle and Change Holy Bible is available in various versions so you can decide what fit is best for your child and family.

Each Bible comes with a sequined cover that girls will enjoy flipping to reveal sparkly hearts and designs. The Bibles are hardcover formats making them durable and sturdy for years of use. Inside, there are 24 high gloss pages inserted throughout that offer places for girls to easily study and learn things like the Biblical timeline, maps, and topics such as“Why Should I Read the Bible?”, “How Do I Know Jesus Loves Me?”, “ How Do I Forgive” and “How Can I Let God’s Love Shine Through Me?”. In addition, these pages offer places for girls to write their favorite verses, plus review cheat sheets on topics covering the Disciples, Names of God and Miracles of Jesus. The fonts and colors on these pages are soft, girly and fun, encouraging young minds to dive deeper in the Word.

The Bible pages are light and easy to read with chapters and verses split apart for easy reference. One feature I personally loved was how there are 300 pre-highlighted key verses throughout the Bible that are perfect for memorization or study points on the promises of God. At the back of Bible is a helpful dictionary, “Where Do I Find It?” guide, a section on God’s promises and memory verse index

The International Children’s Bible is a translation younger kids can read and understand on their own. The New King James Version can be understood by mature young girls, but felt a bit more pre-teen to me. Of course, I always highly recommend reading Scripture with your children! These Bibles are a good resource and tool for a young girl to use independently or at school as her freedom in Christ grows.

The Sparkle and Change Holy Bible would make a great gift for your daughter, granddaughter, niece, friend or any young girl. I personally think this would make an excellent birthday, spiritual birthday or Christmas gift as well! It seems to be geared best for elementary school children to pre-teen.

The perfect addition to your little one’s Easter basket this spring! | A Book Review of An Easter Prayer, Written by Amy Parker, Illustrated by Alison Edgson. A Children's Touch-and-Feel Picture Book!

★★★★★ | This sweet Easter prayer book simply couldn’t be more adorable or precious! It’s perfect for explorative infants and toddlers who enjoy the different sensations a touch and feel book has to offer. With a fuzzy cover and unique textures inside, this prayer book is my favorite addition to my daughter’s Easter basket as we look forward to celebrating her first Easter this year.

An Easter Prayer shares short prose with a new setting and colors on each page. The adorable illustrations with delightful colors will melt your heart as Bunny and her new friend, Chick, offer little bits of thankfulness to God for the wonders of spring. I adore that the book encourages an attitude of gratitude for various springtime delights and highlights that being most thankful for Jesus.

Reading this book with my ten month old daughter is an excellent way to impress the true meaning of Easter on her heart at a young age. I feel certain this will be an Easter/Spring favorite for years to come.

The quality and thickness of the board book pages are impressive and I highly recommend this book as a gift for new parents/babies, an Easter basket addition for toddlers or a baby shower gift for babies due this spring!

A Book Review of Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas by Sarah Young, Illustrated by Katya Longhi | A Children's Christmas Story and Picture Book

Beautiful, spiritual and an excellent reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. This well planned book is sure to be a family favorite this Christmas season!

Jesus Calling: The Story of Christmas by Sarah Young | A Children's Christmas Story and Picture Book

★★★★★ | This beautifully illustrated children’s version of the Christmas story details the prophecies and events leading up to Jesus birth and after. It is an excellent resource for families to read together at the Christmas season and use to discuss the true meaning of the holiday season. Not only does this adorable book have scripture laden throughout it in the form of easy-to-comprehend little blurbs, but it is spiritually sound as author Sarah Young narrates the Christmas story. Near the end of the book, there’s a message to children “from Jesus” and it is heartwarming and truthful.

Since my daughter is just under one, this book was a highlight for her with its bursts of colorful illustrations that she loved. It is a bit mature for really young children in terms of wording, so it’s best read with a parent who can encourage insightful study and answer questions a child might have. The book is paper pages so in that respect it’s better suited for older children, or toddlers who are gentle with books. (UPDATE: After posting this review, I learned this book is available as a board book!) Because the content is rich in spirituality, this book is appropriate for multiple ages with older children benefiting the most, however, it is one I intend to read to my little girl each Christmas. In our home, we don’t shy from the reality of what our Lord went through in his young days being sought out by King Herod or taken to the cross to die for our sins. We want our children to understand these things at an early age and this particular book is a great gateway in explaining how and why our Lord came to earth as well as the reasons He loves us as His children.

Adorable, classic and nostalgic… A beautiful way to cultivate a heart of gratitude with your little one this fall season.

Appropriate for any child under 10, this adorably illustrated book is meant for every child’s bookshelf! There are twenty-four sweet and silly rhymes throughout the book, making it the perfect countdown to Thanksgiving. Your child will love the soft, colorful illustrations that depict both boys and girls, animals and activities, in the classic Precious Moments theme.


Precious Moments Little Book of Thanks, a Tommy Nelson children's book by Jean Fischer.

Precious Moments Little Book of Thanks, a Tommy Nelson children's book by Jean Fischer.

★★★★★ || Precious Moments have always been near and dear to my heart. I have a treasured book of my own rhymes that my Great-Grandmother gifted me as a young child. I was so excited to come across the Precious Moments Little Book of Thanks for my daughter this year! Turning the pages to find the adorable and heart warming images of the Precious Moments children and animals, while reading the rhyming, and sometimes silly poems, brought a bit of nostalgia to my heart.

This endearing book is flooded with a theme of gratitude, making it the perfect avenue for cultivating a heart of thanksgiving with your little one. Each poem covers things like thankfulness for loved ones, food, toys, season changes, weather and more. In addition, there is an accompanying short Bible passage that would make great scripture memorization pieces for older children. It is a beautiful faith-based book!

Precious Moments Little Book of Thanks is an excellent quality, thick board book so children can enjoy the book from a young age on.  The illustrations are sweet, soft and subtle, yet eye catching as they often fill the entire page. My daughter (aged six months) loved looking at them as I read her this book!  I would highly recommend this book to other families with small children and look forward to reading this all year long with my little girl. It’s definitely a classic keeper that will stay on her shelves for years to come and hopefully be a book she cherishes enough to pass on to her own children someday!

Note: For families that do not have both parents involved in the child's life, please know this book does mention both a mother and father.  For children raised in single parent households or for those who have another individual as a guardian, that may be a sensitive subject.

A Children's Book Review of God Bless Our Bedtime Prayers by Hannah C. Hall, Illustrated by Steve Whitlow

This adorable children's book is perfect for your little one's nightly routine and bedtime snuggles, helping them learn to seek God and His promises through prayer. 

Appropriate for any child aged 0-7, this precious book of sweet, little critters and soft, rhyming phrases will help your child learn to pray in a practical way about praising God, giving thanks, praying for loved ones and overcoming fears, trials and worries. Each page offers colorful illustrations and accompanying scripture featuring the promises God has made to His children.

God Bless Our Bedtime Prayers, a Tommy Nelson children's book written by Hannah C. Hall, illustrated by Steve Whitlow.

★★★★★ || I truly adore the God Bless Our books and this new release is certainly no exception.  The practical way that the author teaches children to pray is both simple and sweet.  The ten little prayers can stand alone, with one read each evening or the entire book as a whole.  I loved that each prayer taught something different - praise, thanksgiving, casting your worries on Him, trusting in the midst of fear, praying for sick loved ones, repentance and even finding rest in God. This book would make a great reference point for parents to read with their children as individual circumstances arise in a child's daily life, helping them look to the Lord for comfort and peace. Throughout this book, children are encouraged to seek God with underlying messages of love, hope and trust. It is truly heartwarming and fulfilling. 

I enjoyed that each prayer had verses to support the sentiment and thought those would work well as memory verses for older children. 

The book is an excellent quality, with thick, board pages so children can enjoy the book from a young age on.  The soft, delightful illustrations are simply too precious! My daughter (aged two and a half months) loved looking at them as I read her this book!  I would highly recommend this book to other families and look forward to reading this multiple times with my little girl! 

Note: For families that do not have both parents involved in the child's life, please know this book does mention both a mother and a father.  For children raised in single parent households or for those who have another individual as a guardian, that may be a sensitive subject.
