By Sheila Walsh
Published at Thomas Nelson
About the book
Every girl is a princess, the daughter of a King… the greatest King who created and rules over everything!
Girls long to be loved and adored, and give their heart to their hero. God is that hero!

God is that Hero. This devotional Bible for young girls uses Scripture selection from the International Children’s Bible alongside articles that help girls blossom into the princesses they were always meant to be. Virtues to create true beauty, such as honor, charity, compassion, sharing, truth, fairness and more, are highlighted throughout the book in fun and engaging ways. This Bible will help little girls learn about their destiny as a daughter of God and a true princess!

Features included are: Beauty Secrets, Bible Princesses, My Hero (Scripture promises), Take a Bow (Easy plays that are Bible-focused), I Adore You (Put girls energy to use with songs, scripture and worship), Royal Truths, Down In My Heart (Scripture Memory), Princess Charming, Worthy of Love (Ideas to show how to love her royal subjects: family, siblings, friends and those in the community).

Who is Sheila Walsh?
Sheila Walsh is a Scottish princess who now lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, Prince Barry, and son, Prince Christian. Her loyal subjects are Belle, a fluffy white dog, and Hamtaro, a teddy bear hamster.
My Thoughts
Geared for girls who are 4 to 7 years old, this Devotional Bible is simply charming. The cover is designed in such a way that it would attract any little girls. The crown has stones imbedded in the book and the word Bible is all sparkly.

The drawings that you will find in this Bible are fun to look at and very feminine. I love the fact that various colors and designs are used from one page to another. This will help to keep the attention of the child because you never know what to expect.

I particularly love the fact that the author has thought of putting some plays to act out. (hey what can I say – I have a heart for Drama and acting!). But what is interesting is that after each role playing, there is a small section to review act. So mom you ask questions to your daughter and she has to answer them as best as she can.

Mind you, my own daughter is a bit too young to enjoy the stories for now. After all she is only 17 months. So for now, I will keep this wonderful book aside for her to use in a couple of years. I would love to discover the princesses in the Bible with her and do the plays together. Maybe we will be able to convince her big brothers to act with us. *grin*

Throughout the book, little girls will read about bible story, have devotions, singing, experimenting with some lessons, and have fun learning about God and the characters in the Bible. It makes me almost wished that I had a bible like that when I was younger.

This wonderful jewel of a Bible for little girls is available everywhere as well as on the internet. Check out amazon.ca and indigo.ca.
