This was bought as a gift for the child of a friend who currently has a Bible for younger children (he is six years old). My friend said that his kids couldn't put it down, and that his son will "grow" into it. In the meantime, his parents can read to him from it.
This is an excellent choice of bible. The youngsters in our church received them on Children's Sunday and although the print was slightly small, they wanted to steer away from the storybook bibles and were thrilled to receive an "older" version bible that they could read. The pictures and maps, etc. added to their excitement of reading about the Lord. Thank you for offering this in the NRSV!
