This was such a uniquely designed bible; and perfect for my 8 year old grandson who is very fond of what he calls 'army' decorations; for some reason. The cloth cover makes it ideal for carrying to church.
I was expecting the same Bible as the hardcover. With the arthritis in my hands it would be easier,,however,,this Bible left out a lot of the American facts. I gave the Bible away to a 15 year old friend. His mom passed away and she was my friend. Her son needed something with at least some facts because he's failing in his history subject. He's also have a bit of problem with naming all the President's in their order of office. If you are looking for this Bible try the soft cover which I just bought. Still a bit heavy but it's the same as the hardcover.
