~ What ~
Targeting children six to ten years old who want a Bible to call their own, this one has a sturdy hardbound cover. Containing violence and adult situations, some of the iconic contents may not be appropriate for immature readers. At 2,048 pages in length, the New International Readers Version is geared for more simplistic viewing.
Typical of the NIvR, this contains several pages about the particular version, both the Old and New Testaments, a dictionary, and a list of one hundred and fifty famous Bible stories by title and book location. In the verses, numbers are numerical, not written out, some key language is omitted, and antiquated pronouns such as thee and thou are changed.
Since it is part of The Beginner’s Bible series, the book has twenty full-color, full-page illustrations of stories in the Bible. The first two drawings are at the beginning on two presentation pages, with a place to write in the recipient’s name, giver, date given, age of the recipient, and reason given. Placed routinely throughout the pages and not near the stories’ locations, the artworks cover characters such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Elijah, David, and Jonah from the Old Testament. The New Testament pictures are mostly about Jesus and His miracles, death on the cross, and resurrection.
~ Why ~
This book would be a nice first Bible for a young child who is enjoys reading and understands its well-known Biblical stories as he or she searches for more information. The print is decent sized so easy to read.
~ Why Not ~
Since the book is for first to fifth graders, the version may be advanced for some readers’ comprehension level based on its content. With the added illustrations inserted systematically instead of within the storyline, it may be frustrating for some readers to have to flip to the chapters mentioned. The paper is thin, so words bleed through the pages.
~ Wish ~
Not a fan of the NIV, I wish a King James Version for children were available in this series.
~ Want ~
This Bible is a reasonable progression for those who enjoy The Beginner’s Bible series products and are ready to read directly from the Word of God.
Thanks to Z Blog Squad for furnishing this book that I am reviewing on my free will.
I was very happy when I saw that this regular-sized Beginner’s Bible had a quality cover and colorful pictures that were just as engaging as the preschool version.
My daughter couldn’t wait to write her name and age on the glossy page in the front.
We turned to Psalm 119:11 to see if she could read the verse on her own.
I have hidden your word in my heart so that I won’t sin against you.
She was able to read most of the words.
Since the Bible is written for a third-grade reading level she will need some assistance sounding out words.
I’m happy she has her own full version Bible that’s geared to help early readers discover the Bible on their own.
The NIrV is based on the NIV. However, to make the Bible easier to read and understand, some shorter words are used in place of long words. The large print helps young readers focus on each word.
The chapters are separated into shorter sections and almost every chapter has a title.
The Beginner's Bible
This quote from the introduction of the Bible may help you decide if it’s right for you.
“Who will enjoy reading the New International Reader’s Version? People who are just starting to read will understand and enjoy the NIrV. Children will be able to read and understand it. People who are reading the Bible for the first time will be able to enjoy reading the NIrV. So will people who have a hard time understanding what they read.”
After the Table of Contents, there’s a section titled Getting to Know Jesus with simple answers to questions about who Jesus is.
