My 8-yr-old is just starting to enjoy reading on his own, but "large" books don't seem to interest him. I was so thrilled when I gave him this Bible - he took one look at the cover and his eyes lit up. He loved it! He's jumped right in and started reading. This is the translation I had as a kid and I think it's great. Traditional, but still understandable for a kid. And the extras in this version are really capturing his attention as well. I'm so glad I picked this Bible for him.
I ordered serveral Bibles for a relative to give to her grandchildren, after looking at them I thought they were going to be a great tool for the kids to learn more about Jesus. Good pictures so the reader can see what the Bible is referring to. I would recomend this Bible
