Our Sunday School has been purchasing this Bible for our children to use from 1st through 6th grade for years. However, this newer version is bound too tightly for the children to use. The Bible will not stay open easily. The words on the inside margins are hidden. Many pages are puckered by the tight binding. The print is not that easy to read and the verses are not easily distinguishable. We are looking for a different study Bible to give to our elementary students in the future --- which is a shame because the study notes in this Bible are excellent!
This Bible exceed my expectations and the engraving is beautiful. I bought it for my 8 year old boy who asked for it for Christmas and he love it!!!......even I liked it very much to the point that I would like it for myself!! Is very clear and all the different fun facts makes it very interesting to follow. I truly recommend this Bible for any child.
