Format: Hardcover
Combining the Berenstain Bears franchise with the New International Reader's Version (NIRV) could have been an incredible thing if only someone could think beyond getting to the two together. By themselves, they have an incredible appeal to children but like so many themed Bibles, the results go over with a thud.

Unfortunately, there is not much to this particular edition than was mentioned my first paragraph. The included Berenstain Bears material is nothing more than inserts of illustrations every 1/8th intervals, extolling some virtue tied with a verse that is rarely near the book its in. I would have given less than two-stars if wasn't the presentation of NIRV text.

For those completely oblivious to spectrum of English translation of the Bible, the NIRV is a variant of the New International Version (NIV) aimed at children and people to whom English is not their first Language. Taking the already contemporary language of the NIV, the translators simplified the Scripture with smaller words, phrases, and more declarative sentences. For many readers about my age and experiences, it would be easy to discount its worth but rarely has a Bible made itself so immediately clear - the book of Job, Isaiah, and the Psalms, the Epistles are more readable. Within this Bible, every book has a paragraph long introduction and simple outline of the major events and people. The text itself is broken up with smaller headings of the events within the text. It has a large 12-type text for easy reading and highlighting - the page paper is slightly above the tissue paper of other Bibles.

My 7 year old takes this bible to church and uses it at home, as well. There are some colorful illustrations in it, but the text could be bigger, and I would like to see more maps, story explanations, kid-friendly additions.

I love that this is in the NIRV (3rd grade reading level) version. It's easy to read and understand. It was a gift for a friend and her children and they are loving it. However, I was hoping for more study content. The inserts mentioned are much shorter than I realized. It's a full page Berenstain Bear graphic but little text.

My son LOVES this Bible. I bought and tabbed it for him and he was in this thing for the entire day! He was SO enganged in the Word it was unbelievable. The BSB inserts are ok, but they're aren't many and WONDERFULLY my little guy is interested in Gods Word. Not Sister Bears. Also the font is large and the translation is easy for him to read.
