Looking for a Bible to give to a special girl in your life? Good news: we’ve got a lovely one to tell you about today and the best part? It’s a great fit for tweenagers! Here’s what you need to know about the Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for girls.
I received a copy of the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls Gift Set from Zondervan (HarperCollins Christian Publishing) for this review. This post is sponsored by Zondervan. See my full disclosure here.
I’ve always been a notetaker and underliner. I remember sitting in church as a girl trying my best to underline and jot notes into the margins of my Bible. I also remember wondering why Bible pages were so thin and why it became so messy when I wrote on those nearly translucent pages.
Thankfully it doesn’t have to be that way for my daughter. I found a lovely new Bible that specifically encourages girls to engage with God’s Word through coloring, journaling, and taking notes.
And now that my girl has spent some time using her Beautiful Word Coloring Bible, I’m happy to share what I’ve learned about it.
A Look at the Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls
Before I jump into my thoughts about this Bible for girls, here’s how it differs from other children’s Bible options:
Geared toward girls from 8-12 years old, the Beautiful Word Coloring Bible invites girls to use their God-given creativity while they journal and process scripture. Also,
- It’s a complete NIV Bible (New International Version)
- There are more than 600 verses of illustrated ready-to-color lettering. (Some are even by one of our favorite artists, Lindsay Sherbondy of Lindsay Letters.)
- It comes in a gift box that includes 4 colored pencils. (You can easily replace those with a pack of Twistables when those are used up!)
- It includes 6 sheets of ready-to-color stickers.
- Pages include lined margins for notes and reflections. These pages are meant to be written on!
- Extra pages for notes are in included in the back.
- It’s a leathersoft hardcover edition — it’s pretty and girly, but sturdy enough to withstand typical wear and tear.

Our Thoughts on the Beautiful Word Coloring Bible
When I first heard about this coloring Bible for girls, I expected it to be a great fit for my nearly 9 year old daughter and I was right! She recently made her profession of faith and has been so curious about the Word and looking for ways to dig in.
She’s ready to transition away from children’s Bible storybooks and have a Bible she can claim as her own. (You know, besides her Precious Moments Bible that Nana gives all the grandkids.) That’s why this is such a good choice for her.
Instead of doodling in a notebook as our church meets, she now has her Beautiful Word Bible open to the passage we’re studying. She colors while she listens, underlines special passages in the margins, and even makes notes about questions or specific points.
In other words, this Bible gives her incentive to listen, learn, and process God’s Word. That’s a win in any form.
The Beautiful Word Coloring Bible for Girls is like nothing I’ve ever seen before! It’s truly a great way to help girls engage and express their creativity while growing through the Word of God.
