We gave Reed his first Bible for Christmas and it was the Adventure Bible, also from Zonderkidz. He loves it and so do I but the one thing I didn’t love was that it was the New King James Version and I feel like that’s hard for kids to understand. Our church and most that I know of use the New International Version so I prefer that he has the same one at home.
That’s why when I saw this NIV Gift Bible for kids I thought it’d be perfect for Reed. The recommended age is 9+ and he just turned 7 but he is already reading on his own.
I really liked the older look of the Bible. It doesn’t have that babyish look anymore of starter children’s Bibles. It has a nice leather cover that’s soft but firm and will not fall apart on you.
I really like that the outer pages are painted gold. To me that just says Bible! I grew up with gold on my pages and remember as a very little girl looking at my parents Bibles and thinking that gold was magical. It might be old school but I like to see it on Bibles today. It’s a classic touch that I hope never goes away!
The Bible has a good binding so that you can open it and it will lay flat. I really like this feature because it makes it hard to read when something is so stiff it keeps closing on you.
The one thing I don’t like and I don’t understanding considering this is a children’s Bible is the print. It is so small it hurts my eyes to read it. My kids eyes are younger and better than mine but I don’t want them straining to read. That shouldn’t be an issue and I don’t want to give them a reason to want to stop reading!
Other than the print this Gift Bible for kids is a good one and would make a treasured Easter gift!
