What I think about...The Velveteen Bible

I recently had the opportunity to review Thomas Nelson's newest children's Bible called "The Velveteen Bible".

First, here is a little blurb from Thomas Nelson's website about this Bible.
"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."

This Bible is so sweet looking and a great size for little hands.  The velvet flocking in the cover is a sweet touch that really makes you want to run your hands over it!  Inside there are 3 sets of 4 pictures painted in watercolors that have a bible verse to go along with them.  They are so fun and add a little color which is always good in a children's Bible. 
At the front of the Bible there is a dedication page and then a place to write in the child's brothers, sisters, and grandparents names and birth dates.  There is also a page for the important dates in the child's life like dedication, confirmation, etc.  I think that addition makes it feel a little like a grown up's bible in a fun way.
This is a full Bible in the New King James Version so it is not something that Little L will be reading on a regular basis just yet but I still think it will make a nice addition to her Easter basket this year!
