Mom of 14 Stars Out Of 5Easy to readSeptember 25, 2016Mom of 1Quality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 5This Bible makes reading the Bible with and to my young child much easier as I don't have to stop and define big words. We can pay more attention to what is being said and what it means. Definitely a good find for the transition from the Bible storybooks of early childhood to reading the actual Bible for Bible time.
Noryne5 Stars Out Of 5NIrV Study Bible for KidsDecember 21, 2015NoryneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I think this bible is great for people (even adults) who have a hard time understanding the bible and/or have a hard time staying with it. I have recommended it to several people.
SnickerdoodleSarahGender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Good, but could have been betterJuly 15, 2015SnickerdoodleSarahGender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3The NIRV Study Bible for Kids is and interesting concept, but not as well executed as I think that it could have been. First, there were unnecessary pictures. I don't understand why almost everyone has to depict Adam and Eve before the fall, without clothing? Yeah it was okay before the fall, but we live after the fall so to depict them in that way now is shameful. It wasn't as bad a it could be (there were the usual bushes) but was worse than some I've come across, they showed enough to make me more uncomfortable with them than I normally would be. Wouldn't it be wrong to depict the nakedness of the father and mother of all human beings? Displaying what is now their shame as art? Should Christians actually promote this? Also, they had depictions of Christ, and I still think that that type of thing may break (or at least be on the edge of breaking) the commandment to "not make any graven image" to worship.
The NIrV translation itself seems rather good, but it may be a little too clear in some areas for kids.if that's possible in translating a Bible? For instance, in Ezekiel, the part where God compares Israel and Judah as prostitutes is a bit graphic, but it may not be more graphic than other translations, just more modern in expression (they appear to be sticking to the text quite well and not unnecessarily expanding on it in those areas). Just wanted to note that for parents' sake. But I do think that translation is good overall (though I think that the translator(s) of Romans 7 may have thought that the man with conflicting desires is an unsaved person rather than a saved one). Here are some examples of verses I liked the wording of:
"Don't live the way this world lives. Let your way of thinking be completely changed. The you will be able to test what God wants for you. And you will agree that what he wants is right. His plan is good and pleasing and perfect." - Rom. 12:2
"Then Jesus spoke to his disciples, he said, "Whoever wants to be my disciples must say no to themselves." - Matt. 16:24
"All who take part in the games train hard. They do it to get a crown that will not last. But we do it to get a crown that will last forever. So I do not run like someone who doesn't run toward the finish line. I do not fight like a boxer who hits nothing but air.." - 1 Cor. 9:26
As I alluded to above, the translation isn't perfect (no translation is), one mistranslation I feel I need to bring up is in Romans 9: "It is written, "I chose Jacob instead of Esau" - vs. 13 That's a far cry from, "Jacob I did love, and Esau I did hate."(YLT). But they seem to be okay in other parts of the passage: vs 18, "So God does what he wants to do. He shows mercy to one person and makes another stubbornn" Other places are not translated very accurately as well, but again, no translation is absolutely perfect across the board.
Again, on the positive side, there are questions in little boxes throughout the Bible that kids can ponder, and a little dictionary at the back than can be pretty helpful, as well as maps. Anyway, the translation was okay, but maybe a bit too specific in passages speaking of sexual related things for kids..maybe... again, that's debatable. Again, can a Bible translation translate a word too clearly? As long as the word is actually translating, and is not expanding on a word or making it refer to more than it does in the actual Greek and Hebrew, is it too clear? Again, parents should decide this for themselves, as to what there kids should or should not read/know at their ages. My biggest problem was the pictures, so because of that I can't rate this edition as high as I would have without them. Otherwise it was pretty good.

joanna5 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: NIrV Study Bible for kids by ZonderkidsJune 25, 2015joannaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The NIrV Study Bible for kids by Zonderkids has a colorful cover and paper quality is good. The intended reading age is ages 6-10 at a third grade reading level. The NIrV Study Bible for kids by Zonderkids includes 32 full-color pages, a presentation page, the Check It Out section describes the life in Bible times, the Brain Game section is short quizzes to help with comprehension, the Soak It Up section is selected memory verses, Each book has an introduction with a brief overview and events list, there is a dictionary and a map section at the back.
I was very excited to review the NIrV Study Bible for kids by Zonderkids. I liked how the full color sections gave a study section as well as selected picture and story references. I would have liked to see more of the full color section but I understand it would have added to the overall weight of the book. The Brain Game sections are wonderful and a great idea to help with comprehension. I think there could be more maps as children are drawn to that section. I like how the book color changes between blue and green. I think the color difference helps children locate the different books. I like the books of the Bible section in the front. I think this is a great book for children and people who teach children. I would buy this book and would recommend anyone looking for an NIrV version to buy this book.
