Our church bought these Bibles for our 5th grade graduates. Very easy for them to read and understand. I really like the life application aspect of this product. This Bible points them to specific scripture for specific situations that their age group faces.
This product greatly appealed to a young teen. It applied to her in a way that is easy to understand and she could see the everyday life situations as they are with teens/preteens today. I would definitely recommend this again.
Not sure how 'literal' or unabridged it is, but was an appropriate communion gift for my daughter. It is beautiful enough that it may capture her attention and create an interest that wasn't initially strong.
