5 Stars Out Of 5
Absolutley Love this!
April 15, 2013
Our oldest son is 5, he will be 6 this summer. He has had 2 different kids' bibles with colorful pictures and short stories. Our son reads on a exceptionally high level for his age. He started off kindergarten reading on the early first grade level. As we are finishing up the school year he has been reading on early second grade level. He likes to challenge himself as he reads and when he picked up our NASB bible and started to read it we realized that it was time to buy him his own. We wanted to get this for him for his birthday, however sometimes these things just can't wait! Especially when your child shows true love for God's word, and desire to learn more.
He does have our old NLT bible to compare the passages. He understands most of the words, but we sometimes have to talk about what different words mean. I did come across a few words that I wish were different; example being Psalms 1: "The truly happy person doesn't fallow wicked advice," In this case we had to spend a good bit of time trying to figure out the word wicked. To make sure that he understood what wicked really meant. It isn't a common word for a 5 year, unlike "Evil, Bad, unkind etc."
However right below it there is a "my thoughts" section that explains Psalm 1, in words he can easily understand, with a story he can relate to. Over all I'm extremely happy with this bible for my son, and will buy it again for my other two children when they are old enough.
