The Velveteen Bible {review}

About The Book…

A sweet addition to the Tommy Nelson Baby/Toddler Bible line, using an adorable image of a flocked velvet bunny.

Inspired by Baby’s First Bible with the adorable fuzzy duck cover, this new offering for little ones, The Velveteen Bible features soft fur and a fuzzy tail! Inside, the New King James Version scripture is accompanied by whimsical images of bunnies and other baby animals, colorful borders, and lovely sentiments from the scriptures. The Bible is packaged in a keepsake treasure box.

Give the Velveteen Bible as that extra special gift for baptisms, christenings, baby dedications, birthdays, or any gift-giving occasion in your little one’s life. Make it sweet by personalizing the presentation page and family record section. Your child will enjoy reading God’s word while being delighted by the adorable animals playfully decorating the full-color pages throughout.

My Thoughts…

There’s nothing like receiving your own Bible as child. I still remember receiving my own and to this very day I still  hold it near and dear. Though both my children are a bit to young for their own Bibles right now, I’m on the look out for very special ones that they can hold near and dear just like I do with my own.

I recently was given the opportunity  to review The Velveteen Bible from Tommy Nelson Publishers. And my search for my daughter’s first Bible is now officially over. I know when she is the right age, that she’ll very much so enjoy this special Bible. This Bible is recommend for children ages 4-8 years old.

This Bible is not condensed in the least bit, just so people know. I thought it might have been but it’s not. The version of the Word is New King James Version which is my preferred version to read. It’s great for us that the whole family will be in the same translation when it comes to devotional time.

The words of Christ are in read and at the back of the Bible there’s a yearly reading plan which is a great addition. Included inside the Bible are beautiful illustrations that feature key verses to take to heart.

This hardcover child sized Bible comes in  a special keepsake box that has fuzzy features the same as the Bible has.

Overall I think this Bible would make a wonderful first Bible that can be treasured for a lifetime. I can’t help think that with Easter coming up soon it would be a good time to gift it in also reminding our kids why we really celebrate the holiday.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of The Velveteen Bible through the Book Sneeze book reviewers program, in exchange for my honest review.
