The iShine Bible is a Bible targeted at tweens (7-12 year olds). It is a New Living Translation. Because I have a daughter who is seven, I thought this would be a great product. To my eyes, it's simply average. I was expecting a Bible with a lot of neat little articles about being a tween interspersed with the Bible verses. There is a section at the beginning with topics and verses that might be relevant to tweens/teens. There are also a handful of pages that address what Tyndale calls V.I.P. "V = You have Value in God's eyes. I = Your Identity is found only in Jesus Christ - and wow does that mean a lot. P = Because of the V and the I, you have a special Purpose in the world." These sections have QR codes that will give you a special message if you access them with your phone. For those without a phone, there is also a website to visit. The website contains topics pertinent to tweens and music by teen/tween Christian musicians. The Bible is about the size of a paperback book, comes with a "leatherlike" cover, and comes in Lip Sync Pink/Rockin' Ruby or Backstage Blue.
My daughter really likes the pink cover and the fact that it is made for girls. She can read the text but does not understand a lot of it. The extras are also kind of lost on her right now. Hopefully as she gets older, she will grow into it.
Overall, I think this is an average Bible. I can't speak to how relevant it is to tweens, not being a tween myself, but it has potential. I also think it's a nice transition, because my daughter's previous Bible is designed for littler children, even though it has the full text.
