We use these in our children's worship and formation and find them quite useful and user friendly. There's not a lot of what I feel is distracting material within the scriptural text, but very useful maps and helps at the beginning and end of the Bible. They are sturdy and I imagine they won't need replacing for several years. We're also handing them out at Bible presentation for kids to have as their own. I hope they'll use them well into adulthood.
Love this Bible! I picked it so my kids can grow up with it. I was interested in the tween Bibles, however they would outgrow the devotionals. And I like devotions not in a Bible anyhow. I feel it distracts from the Bible itself. I have 2 that have them in it.
Anyways, most of the ones that I found without the devotionals in them had nothing but text. I wanted at least a concordance in the back. This one has that, and color maps AND a color timeline! It is great. The font is just the right size. And it is easy enough to use for a kid. Oh, and it has book introductions for all the books! That was pretty cool. I think it is the best one I have ever seen. And best of all, my kids love them.
I bought this bible to put together my Child Training Bible as I needed a 9x6 sized bible...I had no idea I was purchasing such an incredibly well layed out and designed bible. It's clean, simple text and organization allow it to be read easily and is a great size for children learning to read! I also loved the quick introductions to each of the books! Great choice!
