We purchased this for our son for Christmas as his first bible. We looked at it online and once we got it and were very pleased with our purchase! I think it is so neat that it has a buckle on it to keep it together in travel. Our son even loves it as well.
The Adventure Bible is a good choice for elementary children because it has inserts or side notes containing information about the historical background of the passage it is near: for example a picture of a house in Jersaleum during the time of Jesus. Most of as children wound think of a house having a flat room, few rooms, and stairs on the outside. So when 4 men carry a sick man to the roof of a house, cut a hole in the roof, and then lowered the man down in front of Jesus, we can easily picture how that may have looked.
Also, words not common in our culture are defined and/or explained.
I liked this product very much but wish it were in the form of a study bible. The added notes would have been very helpful for my students. I would love to see it in larger type as well for my students with visual problems. But in general it is a very good product.
This bible is fun and intriguing with it's helpful side bar discussions and at the same time gives a complete bible for the child to read and grow with! My nephew is a 9 yr old and I know he will love it. thanks!
