Purchased this for my 9yr old granddaughter. It was highly recommended by a parent in our childrens ministry group. It is a beautiful bible and she treasures it. I'm very pleased with this purchased. Perfect youth bible. Exceeded my expectations.
We purchased this for our son for Christmas as his first bible. We looked at it online and once we got it and were very pleased with our purchase! I think it is so neat that it has a buckle on it to keep it together in travel. Our son even loves it as well.
The Adventure Bible is a good choice for elementary children because it has inserts or side notes containing information about the historical background of the passage it is near: for example a picture of a house in Jersaleum during the time of Jesus. Most of as children wound think of a house having a flat room, few rooms, and stairs on the outside. So when 4 men carry a sick man to the roof of a house, cut a hole in the roof, and then lowered the man down in front of Jesus, we can easily picture how that may have looked.
Also, words not common in our culture are defined and/or explained.
