My church has been giving the NIV New Adventure Bible as a presentation bible for our new 1st graders. Recent revisions of that edition sent us looking for a new choice. We like this one. The NIrV text is good for this age group. The art is colorful and appealing - drawn to look like children's art. There are no fantasy cartoons which confuse children in the one book they ought to be able to trust as "true." This edition is a good 2nd choice for us.

More than just another NIRV children's Bible from Zondervan this is truly a study Bible for the young. One of the unique features is a lot of bright pictures that appear to be drawn by children. With a very brief introduction before each book, questions scattered throughout to encourage children to think about the lessons behind the stories, and lots of other features it is an excellent choice for children. The Bible ends with a section on life in the New Testament times and a small dictionary.

The only thing I don't like is the placement of the various pictures. For example the pictures of Jesus walking on the water and Peter's vision are both in the pages of the book of Jeremiah. Likewise Zacchaeus Climbing the tree is in the pages of Ezekiel. This can be confusing to a child when the pictures are in the wrong books. Even with this caveat it is more than just a readable children's Bible, it teaches children how to study, think about what they have read, and find additional information using the dictionary. The Kids Study Bible: New International Readers Version is highly recommended as a first Study Bible for young children.

This NIrV Bible has been a great addition to our household. It is very easy to understand without changing the stories or context whatsoever. The pictures are unobtrusive, and additional facts and information are scattered throughout. The print is neither too large, nor too small. Amazon lists this version for ages 4-8, but I have to admit, I enjoy reading it. I think it can easily appeal to older kids as well. Having grown up with the King James Version, I find this Bible to help me better understand all of those little "hmmm, what exactly does that mean?" type questions. I wish I had had something like this when I was growing up. It helps make the Bible much more understandable. This makes a wonderful introduction to the Bible for small children, and helps older kids get a better understanding and handle on some of the more difficult to comprehend parts.

We got this Bible for our daughter in 1st grade, who devours books at the 3rd grade reading level of this book. She (and we) wanted a full text Bible instead of a story bible, and she had been struggling with our old Young Reader's Bible RSV, which is at 8th-grade level. So we got her this NIrV Kid's Study Bible: the sentences are short, the vocabulary easy, and she really enjoys reading it, as well as the extra helps like the memory verses and thought questions. The only drawback is the illustrations. While they are cute, like children's drawings, they are not necessarily placed with the stories they represent, and we would have liked more of them. When she's a little older, we will get her the 8th-grade-level Crossway Children's Bible ESV--my favorite translation plus 200 very colorful lifelike illustrations, a truly beautiful book.

I am director of Children's Ministries at an American Baptist church and we give this Bible every year to new First Graders. They use this Bible until they get to 6th Grade. This Bible has wonderful illustrations and does not divert from the meaning of the original text other than using more child friendly words. It is WONDERFUL!

This purpose of this Bible is to make the Scriptures easy for children to understand. In this regard, the NIrV Kids' Study Bible handily accomplishes this goal. The sentences are short, and difficult vocabulary have been translated into simpler words. Review questions also appear in many sections, which aid in retention of the passage. My eldest daughter has greatly appreciated the Bible background and customs notes, and all our children love the colorful pictures. I highly recommend this Bible for elementary aged children who have at least a basic level of reading ability. I also recommend it for those learning English as their second language.

The church where I serve spent several weeks looking to buy Bibles that were age appropriate for our Elementary age children. We chose this Bible because we felt it was great for that age. It is clear and easy to read, but also has lots of "extras" on the pages. It is bright and colorful, catchy for kids to pick up. The illustrations in the book are also wonderful. A great resource for any family or church.
