This is a great Bible for the younger school age children. We use it weekly in our children's Celebrate Recover classes, because it is easier for the younger children to understand. This is one Bible I would recommend to my friends with children.
I bought this because I thought I might have the opportunity to share the gospel with children, and I wanted the scripture in language that would be easy to understand. But this isn't just a kids bible tho, I loved the large print for my tired old eyes, and I loved the easy reading and yet not dumbing down of the scripture. I left the bible in the hands of a friend whose first language is not english, but attends english church services where scripture is usually read from the NIV, but mostly she wanted it because the printing is a good size for "middle age" eyes. I bought it as a kids bible...but really it is everyones bible, I just wish this version was available with the large print in a more adult binding...btw, I even appreciated the pictures and the introductions. I think I'll do a lot of reading from the NIrV bible from now on.
