In our home, sparkles are awesome and the more something shines bright the better! When we are out and about if something sparkles, it grabs our attention and we say, "Sparkle!" This would be similar to the idea of saying "Squirrel!" when you are distracted mid-sentence in a conversation. So when given the opportunity to review, ICB Golden Princess Sparkle Bible: International Children’s Bible (ICB) I did not need to think twice and after receiving it, I was so very glad that I did! Not only does the cover present a glittery presence on the outside cover, the inside pages brightly shines God's word just for young readers. Anyone who has read the bible in church for spiritual growth and understanding or at school for its highly competent literature knows that the language used in a standard King James Version (KJV) can be difficult to decode. The ICB version takes this barrier away with the use of a lower level vocabulary (3rd grade reading level) as well as a simpler font making it easier for independent reading. This makes it possible for them to focus on the stories rather than the difficult text. Take Hebrews 11:1 for example, Faith means being sure of the things we hope for. And faith means knowing that something is real even if we do not see it. It’s easy to understand yet not a bit of its meaning is lost through the simple words! The ICB® doesn’t water down the truth of God’s Word by simplifying it for kids. The best available Hebrew and Greek texts were used to assure a faithful translation of the original languages. The ICB is a dynamic equivalent (thought-for-thought) translation of the Bible. In addition, the bible includes a dictionary and concordance to assist readers with words or concepts they do not understand. Not only will they be reading God's word and growing as Christians, they will be learning and becoming better readers! The publisher says, "Every little girl is a princess in God’s eyes, and this glittery Bible packed with great features is truly fit for royalty!" I found the following description of ICB, provided by Faith Gateway, to be valuable information: 4 reasons the ICB® translation is a game-changer for kids and God’s Word The name itself tells my children this Bible is for THEM, written specifically with their journey of faith in mind. The ICB® has more than 300 Key Bible Verses highlighted in the text so that children (and their parents) can read and learn some of the most important and foundational truths of God’s Word. Comprehension of the ICB® requires a third-grade reading level making it the perfect full-text Bible for elementary age kids to read. Word for word, the ICB® is simple to understand and apply to our lives. I would like to thank: BookLook Bloggers and Tommy Nelson for the complimentary copy of ICB Golden Princess Sparkle Bible in return for my honest review.

The hardcover ICB Golden Princess Sparkle Bible is very beautifully designed to appeal to little girls, complete with stars and glitter on the cover. The image makes the Bible appear more of a sunshine yellow, but in my hands I would say it looks more like a mustard yellow. It’s certainly appealing, and it has a nice soft finish where the glitter isn’t present. The appeal for this book is intentionally the translation and the cover, along with some colorful illustrations sprinkled throughout. There was nothing added to the text for further study, however many key verses were highlighted (in light gray) to stick out for memorization. The ICB translation is written at a third-grade reading level so that it makes the Bible more understandable for kids. Although I’ve seen the ICB quoted in multiple picture books for kids, I’ve never looked at a complete Bible. In my opinion there are a lot of areas that it makes it easier for kids to understand, but there were also a few verses that I looked at where I really didn’t like the wording. For example, Proverbs 3:5-6 is written as: “Trust the Lord with all your heart. Don’t depend on your own understanding. Remember the Lord in everything you do. And he will give you success.” I feel that the end of the verse is worded in a dangerous way, pointing to the “health and wealth” mindset. God directing your steps in this life doesn’t mean you will succeed in everything you do. I was surprised by the “flow” of this translation. I actually felt like it was more difficult to follow than the original translations. The sentences were over-simplified so that they felt too short, and the passages felt “choppy.” It definitely robs passages of their poetic nature. I think this book would appeal to young girls, but I don’t think this would be my first choice of recommendation. I think it could be helpful when looking at individual passages where it could help make things easier to understand, but I also feel that the wording waters-down the Word too often in the attempts to simplify. I would rather recommend a kids’ Bible that has more notes to help them understand, than one that I’m not confident and comfortable with the translation. There are other translations out there that are easier to understand but more accurate. *I received a free copy of this Bible from BookLook Bloggers. I was not required to give a positive review. Thoughts and opinions expressed are mine alone.

Gold, princess and sparkles make this an eye-catcher for especially middle grade girls. The fact that it is golden and not pink adds an extra bonus. The shimmering glitter on the front cover surrounding the pretty lettering already gives this a special, girly touch while still remaining tasteful. The Bible follows the International Children's Bible translation, one which parents should be aware of the translation differences. For example in this version, the very first verse in Genesis—'...God created the heavens and the earth'—is translated as '...God created the sky and the earth.' Which does give an entire different meaning and as a 'simplifying for younger minds' is arguably necessary. These slight differences pop up here and there and simply should be taken note of. Verses which can be beneficial to remember or hold special meaning are highlighted in light gray and important or difficult repeated words are in bold lettering. These words and their meanings can be found at the back in a short dictionary. There are also sections at the end with helpful tidbits like 'Where Do I Find It?', 'What God Promises About' and 'Memory Verses for My Life'. Each of these is easy to use and practical for the age group. At the bottom of the pages in the Bible, words or phrases which might need a bit more background are very briefly explained. One of the nicest aspects of this Bible are the illustrations. Twenty-four very bright and colorful illustrations are placed in groups of four throughout the Bible. They are centered around the more popular stories such as the Creation, David and Goliath, Walking on Water and such. They are kid appropriate while still holding a bit of the traditional Bible feel. All in all, it's a lovely Bible for girls ages 9 and up. It has a subtle girl style with several helpful aspects inside. Still, it is a traditional Bible without an overfill on frills, making it nice to take along to Bible studies and such. I received a complimentary copy through Booklook Bloggers and found it wonderful enough to want to leave my honest thoughts.
