I bought this because I thought I might have the opportunity to share the gospel with children, and I wanted the scripture in language that would be easy to understand. But this isn't just a kids bible tho, I loved the large print for my tired old eyes, and I loved the easy reading and yet not dumbing down of the scripture. I left the bible in the hands of a friend whose first language is not english, but attends english church services where scripture is usually read from the NIV, but mostly she wanted it because the printing is a good size for "middle age" eyes. I bought it as a kids bible...but really it is everyones bible, I just wish this version was available with the large print in a more adult binding...btw, I even appreciated the pictures and the introductions. I think I'll do a lot of reading from the NIrV bible from now on.
This book is great for my 5 year old that is considered legally blind by the world's doctors. He loves the pictures in them and he feels like a "big boy" when he takes out his "own" Bible when we are in the sanctuary. I only wish that the print was a bit bigger.
