I had the opportunity to review the NIV Kids' Visual Study Bible. The Bible is designed for children ages 8-12, and attempts to bring the Bible to life in four-color illustrated splendor. This study Bible includes a spectacular full-color interior featuring over 700 illustrations, photos, infographics, and maps on every page that visually represent key Bible information. Each page also features important facts located near the relevant verse. Intriguing facts; colorful, engaging maps; photographs; and illustrations make this a Bible they'll want to explore.
Some of the key Features are ~
- Over 700 four-color photographs, illustrations, infographics, and maps throughout
- Full-color design
- Book introductions, including important facts and an image to orient the reader
- One-column format with side bar study notes for ease of reading
- Presentation page
- The complete text of the New International Version (NIV) translation of the Bible
Overall, I really liked the Bible. It's really designed as a tween to young teen Bible. Kids may give the impression it is for 6 year olds, but it's for older kids. I really liked the pictures and images which were in the Bible. They are not cheesy and were very well done. This is not like most adult study Bibles with lots of notes on the bottom of each page. There are generally 1 - 3 notes per page and they are in small boxes on the side.
The Bible I received comes in hardcover and is very nice! My only complaint is that the font seemed a little too small for my eyes. If the font was a little bigger, I would give this a perfect rating. That is my only criticism. Otherwise, this is an excellent, excellent Bible for young Bible readers!
I received this Bible in exchange for an honest opinion from booklookbloggers.
