The Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible is sure to be a hit with girls! This fabulous material is on everything from pillows to T-shirts. The sequins change color right before your eyes. Girls will love the design and will want to carry this Bibles with them everywhere!

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

The accurate and reliable New King James Version also contains beautifully illustrated insert pages in a style that will delight children's imaginations and include topics such as:

Bible timeline
information about Jesus
Journaling for favorite Bible verses

Study helps such as how to study the Bible and how to pray
Articles to build a child's faith, including How Do I Know Jesus Loves Me?, Bible Verses to Know, Knowing Jesus Better
Your little girl will love her Sequin Sparkle and Change Bible!


The cover grabs attention of especially young girls right away with the, at the moment, very popular sequin changing cover. Kept in white and gold, it gives off a quality impression and is something those girls who no long like pink are sure to enjoy.

This Bible holds the New King James Version, and those spots where significant differences were found form in the Greek New Testament are pointed out in the footnotes. The first page gives a chance for the giver to personalize the Bible followed by a short area for the owner to put in a small family tree. Then—and I found this especially nice—there's a short explanation concerning 'Why Should I Read the Bible?' which is written at a level for girls 9 and older, and attempts to make the Bible personal right away.

There are illustrated pages strewn within the Bible, which offer deeper thoughts and answers to questions like ' How Do I Pray?' or 'How Do I Know Jesus Loves Me?'. These are again written at the level of the intended audience, are short and followed by Bible verses, which can be referenced to.

Several 'helps' are also found within the pages. At the beginning, there's a timeline, which is illustrated and points out the more significant moments of the Bible. At the end, there is a list with the names of God used in the Bible, a quick list of Jesus' miracles, a list of the disciples, a list of kids in the Bible and several, nicely illustrated maps to help readers get a better idea of a few of the locations mentioned in the Bible.

The pages are, as always, thin and hold smaller print. There isn't any room for personal notes, which I find disappointing, but this isn't a study Bible in that sense. Rather, it's a Bible for girls to hold precious and enjoy reading or seeking out more about God.

My own daughter couldn't wait to get her hands on it because of the sequins, but has, since then, grabbed it up many times during the last weeks and read in it.

I received a copy from and find it to be a lovely Bible, many girls are sure to enjoy.
