Sequin Bible – Pink

The pink sequin bible is an International Children’s Bible version, which is especially written for girls around the pre-teen age. I love this version even as a teenager it is easy to read and to follow along, you will not get lost in the story as you are reading it. It is a great version for adults to that have trouble ether with reading or comprehension of what they are reading. I like that it includes maps and a dictionary/concordance for finding of different things quickly and easily. It is very well made and would last a lifetime of hard use that it will receive from my younger sister.

   This Bible this very girly, pink, and sparkly. I was at a basketball tournament when it came in the mail a received a phone call saying my pink Bible was amazing. I love the Bibles cover it is amazingly pink and girly. It was everything I expected and then some. I think this is the perfect girl bible and would recommend it in a heart beat to anyone who is a girly girl or knows some one that is one. but all in all I love this bible!

I was not made to write a good review, only to voice my opinion. This book was published by Tommy Nelson

The Little Lame Prince

                                                    By: Miss Mulock

       The little lame prince is the story of one little boy, a prince who because someone dropped him as a young baby, became lame. That same day his mother passed away. His father buried himself in his work and rarely ever paid attention to his son. Then after several years he noticed his son from where he was playing on the floor and called to him, when his son around the age of two did not get up and walk, he more or less crawled/ walked across the floor on his knees. His father was furious with all the people that did not tell him his son was lame. After calling on all the best doctors they all said the same thing, he will never walk like a normal boy would.  His father was very sad and angry and a few months later he passed away and joined his wife.

The little lame prince was now first in line for the throne but his uncle despised him and decided that he was to be on the throne. So he came up with a plan, he had someone make him a wax figure identical to the little prince. Then he told everyone the little prince died in his sleep and had a funeral for him and everything and buried the wax figure next to the former king and queen. During the funeral the little lame prince was carried of to a tower across the mountains to live out the rest of his days in the tower with his nurse.

    But his fairy godmother told him he was a prince and helped him escape to tell everyone that he was still alive, for after a couple of years everyone forgot about him. He found out his uncle had died and his nurse and fairy godmother helped him become the rightful king.

   I really enjoyed this book, it was sad but it ends on a good and happy note so it is not as sad at the end. All in all a good read. This book is set in the middle ages.

Two Tickets To The Christmas Ball

     Two tickets to the Christmas ball is the story of two lonely hearts and a magical Christmas ball. Fellow co-workers for five years Cora Crowder and Simon Derrick barely remember each other, when the run into each other at Warner, Werner, and Wizborrerdad’s book store strange things happen. They both receive a ticket to a one of a kind Christmas ball, but not knowing much about the mysterious ball Cora decided not to go and give her ticket to Sandy. Sandy is Simon’s younger sister who is affected by her down syndrome and loves all things pink and girly. But when Cora gets another ticket, is it just her destiny to go to the magical Christmas ball?

A nice book with an easy to follow dialog and is easy to keep up with, so you don’t have to go back and read what you already read before. Being only a little over two hundred pages it is not very long, it only took me two days to read. The only thing I did not like is that I personally thought I did not end right, don’t get me wrong I liked the book and all but I think it was just ended wrong. But all and all a great book I would recomened to anyone.

Read And Share: Stories About Jesus

  The read and share: stories about Jesus is a very sturdy bible story book made for younger children. I like that it is a board book because they don’t wear out as fast. The stories are very well written even though some of the stories are more pointed to a five to six year olds. The stories are closer to scripture than other bible story books.

 The pictures are well done and they are very appropriate for young children. The colors are very bright and kid friendly. Any child would love to have this book on their shelf.

Great book for children to be read to anytime of the day, anyday. At the end of every story, which is approximately one to two pages long, there are questions like: Are you saved? Which younger children might find confusing. That has to be the only negative thing in the whole book besides I think they need to go in to more detail about what happened. Even younger children like some detail, like you can’t tell a child to do some thing with out them asking why. I think that it is an amazing book all in all and I would recommend it in a heartbeat.
