I really appreciate the NIRV because it incorporates my precious favorite NIV translation of the Bible and makes it even more user friendly.
One of the latest editions for kids from Zonderkidz is the Under the Sea Bible. It has an adorable shiny blue cover featuring sparkly glitter covered sea creatures. It’s a hard cover so hopefully their vibrance and glitter lasts.
Sadly the cover was my favorite part and this is the first Bible from Zonderkidz that I was a little disappointed in. It just didn’t have any special features and even the ones it did have were pretty limited.
I liked the Books of the Bible page that had them listed on what looks like real books. I thought that was cute and haven’t seen that before. It gave me high expectations for the rest of the Bible.
I was disappointed to see that Jesus’s words were not written in a different color. I like this for all Bibles but feel it’s especially important for children’s Bibles. It’s such an important distinguisher for them.
There were a few colored pages scattered throughout that highlighted key elements of Christianity like the ABC’s of becoming a Christian and The Lords Prayer.
It’s a pretty basic Bible and Zonderkidz usually has a lot more special features than this. The Under the Sea Bible is a good basic Bible but it’s definitely of the no frills variation. Luckily the price does reflect this at around $20 it’s a reasonable price for a hard bound Bible.
