Love Letters From God Bible stories for girls The artwork is quite good. The stories are true to scripture; letters from God can be personalized. Thoughts came to me as I read that offered encouragement to young girls two and up: as a believer in the importance of reading early and often to young children, I am always looking for books to have for our ten grands and more... furthermore, continuing reading with children well past their age increases comprehension and maturity. However, I was disappointed in The Happy Girl letter which left out the Gospel completely, so near and yet so far. True HE wants to fill our hearts and is always pursuing us...you are HIS precious daughter however, children are quite literal and "put your hand in HIS, let Jesus take you in HIS arms". True HE will never let you go.....but acceptance of grace and forgiveness through Christ is left out. Obviously the reader has the opportunity to explain forgiveness every time but suppose the reader needs message of Gospel? I loved the book concept, just sad it was confusing at the end considering the audience.
What's better than getting a sweet letter from a beloved family member? Not much if you ask me. It is such a gift that you can savor over and over again. That's exactly what the Bible should be to us, a sweet letter from our Father. Each time you open its covers words of wisdom just pour out begging you to take them to heart and live your life accordingly. The NIrV Love Letters from God has 80 love letters from God that are designed to point to important attributes of God and get the reader to respond back. We've enjoyed Glenys Nellist's books that have taken this same theme and are thrilled with this brilliant way to get children to not only learn more about what the Bible contains but also to interact with it. This Bible just begs to be given as a gift to that special child in your life. I know who I have in mind and I intend to systematically go through and write that child's name into each of the 80 blanks so that she will feel that the letters were meant especially for her. The holidays are fast approaching and I think this would make a wonderful gift for the developing reader on your list. Remember that the NIrV is written at a third grade reading level so it is easily understood and gives confidence to the young reader. By the way if you're looking for something just a little nicer than the hardcover edition there is a darling imitation leather version in the color of magenta! I received a copy of this Bible to facilitate my review.
