This Bible was purchased for my 1st grade son who is seven years old. He is really enjoying it! His previous Bible was a Beginners Bible, so it wasn't set up a like a "real" Bible with all the Old and New Testament. He likes the layout of the pages. It has sections in it such as People of the Bible, Life in Bible Times, Live It!, Words to Treasure and Did You Know? that we find fun to read. I can see this Bible being used for many years and still being enjoyed.
I gave these as kindergarten graduation gifts for the boys. They are very attractive with nice features for kids, and I love the translation for the most part. I am a little concerned about the elastic, how long it might hold up, but for now I'm very pleased since the price was so reasonable!
A nephew of mine visited the church I was preaching in and was intrigued to say the least. He never attends church. He is eight and asked what the Bible was. We purchased this Bible because of its simplicity for an eight year old and as he said; "it looks cool!" He is happily reading stories from it and for that we are grateful.
I recently bought the NIRV Adventure Bible for Early Readers, Italian Duo-Tone, Elastic Closure, in Amethyst/Pink.
I think the Adventure Bible for Early Readers is GREAT! We have been using a hardback copy of one for sometime now.
I wanted to get a special Bible for my daughter's birthday, so I decided to get a leather bound edition of the Adventure Bible. My issue with this Bible is that Christian Book Distributors stated that the Italian Duo tone was a bonded leather. Bonded leather is made by shredding leather scraps and leather fiber, then mixing it with bonding materials and adhering to a cloth or paper backing. This Bible's cover is actually a soft synthetic material that is not as durable.
