Wild About Horses NIV: Published by ZonderKidz

This cute Bible is designed to inspire girls who love horses. In this Bible are beautiful photos of horses, accompanied by inspirational thoughts and scripture verses to help girls deal with a variety of issues including love, friendship, faith, strength, and more. Although the Wild About Horses Bible is primarily designed for girls ages 9-12, anyone who loves horses can appreciate the design & quality of this Bible.

About the binding & cover
The cover is made from Italian duo-tone which is a soft flexible artificial leather. Italian duo-tone is a good quality artificial leather which should prove to be close in durability to bonded leather. Artificial leather book covers such as this haven't been on the market long enough to know for sure. Italian duo-tone comes in many colors, and feels more durable then most artificial leathers. Size: 4.6 wide x 6.7 high x 1 deep in. | 117 wide x 170 high x deep 25 mm

What’s inside?
Through out this Bible you'll find 12 beautiful, full-color photos of horses, accompanied by inspirational thoughts and Scripture verses. Based on the themes of love, peace, friendship, beauty, strength and faith. This Bible is a Red letter edition with the words of Christ in red text. The text is average size for a compact Bible. This Bible does have subject headings which I find to be a blessing, sadly so many compact editions don't have subject headings . I do not recommend using highlighters in this Bible. If you would like to highlight passages I recommend crayola color pencils they work best on thin paper. The paper also has a semi-transparent quality. The pages are edged with gold gild , which matches very well with the design of the cover & the built in ribbon marker very well.
