The Velveteen Bible: By Thomas Nelson {Book Review}

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.

To be quite honest, when I selected to review this book, I thought that it would represent more of a children's book, wherein larger words, stronger paper.  To receive a Bible of any sort is wonderful, especially a children's bible, other than the beautiful pictures showcased throughout the Bible, the wording is more for a parent to read or an older child.  I wanted to get this for my youngest daughter, who is 4, as I figure it is something we can read together and with the pictures, she would remain interested.  This book is not something I would allow for her to go through on her own as the pages, like the regular Bible, are very thin, delicate and with small hands, could easily be wripped.

This is a true Bible, not just a few stories in which I have seen in other books.  This is definately a book my daughter will have to enjoy and hopefully will pass on to her children one day to read, look at the pictures and enjoy.

This book also comes in a beautiful case, with a magnetic closure, captured with a fuzzy bunny on the front (the Velveteen Bunny).

I would definitely recommend the purchase of this Bible.  It is a great way to help get your kids to start learning about the Bible and teaching them about the religion.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
