Review: I received an electronic copy of this book for review from Net Galley. 

I found this version of the Bible to be a relatively easy read as I went through it. The age ranges for this are 10 and up, and with the pink cover and the title, it is intended for girls (or boys who may prefer the color pink, I am certainly not one to judge!) For my 7 year old, it was a little too heavy, but she did like the story of creation, as did my 4 year old. There are some portions of it that may be a little confusing, for instance when the subject of circumcision came up, it was just referred to as a piece of skin being cut away, I don't remember exactly if it was shown to be gender specific or if it was just "followers of God", or perhaps a 10 year old could not read that much into it.
Since it was an electronic copy of the Bible, it was kind of hard for me to really get a feel for it (pun not intended). Personally, I haven't gotten used to having an electronic Bible, I still need it physically.
