Grandchildren were excited about a Bible like Granny's. They can now read and learn almost on their own. Their Sunday School teachers were impressed with all the information about Bible people and places. They had never seen a study bible on a child's level.
I have a 5 year old working at a 2nd grade level. The toddler bible wasn't cutting it anymore and the teen bible was too mature. We needed something in between. This bible was the perfect solution. It is written simply, yet accurately, and I can see it will be a bible he'll be using for years to come.
He was very excited to play "spot the kid drawing" with the mixed illustration styling in this book and the extra tidbits of info sprinkled throughout are attractive and interesting enough to have him taking the initiative in reading them on top of whatever scripture he'd originally open the bible to read.
I am very pleased with this purchase and would unhesitatingly recommend it to friends.
