Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible

December 12, 2018

One of my favorite mom and daughter activities has always been reading and studying the Bible together.

During the summer when my girls were small, one of them used to get up early, grab her Bible, and join me out at my picnic table where I had my quiet time in the morning. Talk about softening a mother’s heart.

That’s what I was reminiscing about when I heard about the new Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible from Zondervan. I used to love those times, but it’s been a while since we have had them.

Reading the Bible with our childrenI know that the sparkles one the Bible aren’t what makes it special, but I still think that while she is a bit older than the 6-10 age range suggested here, she will love this Bible.

But don’t take just my word for it, read more about this Bible below.

About the Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible

This Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible features a cover with pink sequins that change color depending on which way your child swipes. It’s double the fun! It’s perfect for kids ages 6 to 10 to take to Sunday school, read with the family, or study on their own.

The ICB, the first Bible translation created specifically for children, is easy for children to read and understand with a third-grade reading level and is typeset in a large, readable font.  The Bible text is set in ten-point type, with bold in-text subject heads that help kids easily find the passages they are looking for. Also included are boldface words that correspond with a dictionary and concordance entry to explain word definitions. A great new feature in this updated setting is more than 300 key verses that are highlighted throughout the Bible for kids to read and learn.

The beautifully illustrated insert pages are in a style that children love and will delight their imaginations, including topics such as:

  • A Bible timeline
  • A presentation page
  • A place to keep favorite Bible verses
  • Bible maps
  • Articles on topics such as how Jesus loves them, knowing Jesus better, and how to pray, etc.

Your little girl will love her Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible!

And if you want the NKJV version, there is even a white and gold option that looks similar to the pink one. Check it out:
