JW's give out a free one that's great for Bible stories to read to the little ones. Just black out some of the odd false doctrines, and overuse of "Jehovah".

I had this one as a kid and every kid on my block also had one growing up. I Loved it! I found a practically brand new one on eBay for a steal. It’s a hardback, published in 1965. A classic story Bible, not really a “Bible” in the sense of the word though. But at such a young age, it works to read a Bible passage (which youngsters don’t really understand yet to begin with), then follow up with the Children’s Bible with added pictures that look more like paintings with vivid color. As a parent or grandparent, one can explain that it is filled with beautiful pictures and Bible stories, then reference the story from a genuine Bible. That’s what my parents did and what I plan on doing to the grandkids one day.

eBay has them all the time….

The problem with the Children's Bible is that it isn't fun to read like a Dr Seuss book, nor is it an actual bible. At age 7 she's graduating from simple sentences and will soon be eager to tackle real stories. I think Pilgrims Progress would make an excellent gift. It is recommended for ages 6-12 and is a fun way to learn important principles about what it means to be a Christian. In two or three years you can buy her an NIV or ESV with a pink flowery cover and that will keep her into high school.

i stumbled upon this on christianbook.com while searching/checking out recommended ones. the sample contents are easy to read and understand for her age, pictures are good as well.

To the OP, I just want to stress that the children’s bibles that are out there, usually are NOT a true sense of the definition, a “genuine” Christian Bible. They are “aids” in teaching Christianity, but should never be considered as “God breathed” gospel.

2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”

i agree with this. this is just a first step to make her interested and get to know some famous Bible stories.
