I got this Bible as a gift for my 8 year old daughter. It is her first "Real Bible," and she loves it! She loves that it is very much a grown up Bible with words she can read. She loves the color and feel of the cover and the little extra thinking/information points through out the book. I couldn't not be more pleased.
I made a good decision when I purchased this Bible for my granddaughters (9,6 and 4). The 6 year old loves it so much she reads to the 9 year old and the 4 year old. The Bible is easy to read and easy to understand and we love the extra info put on each page. I as a grandmother am happy that it lines up with the Word of God and that when I compare to my Bible it is the same only written for an early reader to understand. We read the book every night.
I bought this for my granddaughter. She is seven, but advanced in reading skills. She will sit and read the interesting little nuggets of information in the margins. The version is easy for her to read and understand. We were reading about Peter walking out of the boat on the water with her brother. He has the Veggie Tales NIV version. She noticed that the story was the same but the sentences were a little different. Very happy with this Bible for her!!!
