In this heart-warming picture book designed for girls, author Glenys Nellist tells the inspiring stories of incredible women in the Bible. With beautiful illustrations by Rachel Clowes and sweet lift-the-flap envelopes, each story delivers a special message for children to open as they read their own personal love letters from God. Full of warmth and love, this picture book will fill girls’ hearts with the wonder of the Lord. The stories of Eve, Miriam, Esther, Mary, and many more will delight children and remind them of the bond they can share with God, just like the women of the Bible.
This is a colorful book for girls ages 4-8 that features Bible stories that will help them learn about the Bible, important women who are part of “His-Story,” and draw closer to God. The stories are more for the elementary age, but it makes for a good nighttime routine where a parent could read to the girl.
The illustrations are colorful and feminine, very attractive for a little girl. What sets the book apart is each story has an envelope flap that the girl can open. It is a letter that can be addressed to the reader, and it is an encouragement from God. Just reading it for myself was a special experience. I could see where a little girl would see her name (if you filled it in ahead of time) and be excited to see what God has to say to her.
I think this is a great book for any girl’s library. If they are the younger side, they will appreciate being read to and looking at the pictures. For the older girls, the stories they can read themselves and the letters from God make this is a book they won’t forget.
I definitely recommend LOVE LETTERS FROM GOD.

The NIV Holy Bible for Girls has a lot to offer. Space in the margins to journal. Pages that were made so that when girls journal, they won’t bleed through. A Ribbon marker to keep track of reading.
The one concern I have is that the Bible is recommended for girls ages 8+. I think it needs to be a little older. I think at that age girls still need a Bible with explanation and different takeaways. This is the full Old and New Testament, and I’m afraid the journaling aspect wouldn’t be as utilized as much as it could be because the girls will be too young to understand.
That’s my only concern in what is otherwise a beautiful Bible.
