Good family discussions. Jan 4, 2008
Love the historical/background information. This is a good resource for helping today's kids identify with the Bible's historical figures, cultures, and lessons. Without completely altering the poetic language, it offers activities and ideas to improve comprehension and help children see the relevance of the text to their own lives.
child-friendly Sep 26, 2007
I purchased this as a first bible for my 6 year old son. There are bursts of fast facts and passages paraphrased to make it easier for browsing. My son enjoys reading these and even for adults like myself, the background informations are helpful. The generous amount of illustrations captures his attention and aids in his comprehension of certain passages of the bible. I can surely say this is the best thing I've bought for my son.

We give this Bible to our third graders each year at our church. My son uses this Bible also. It is in easy to understand format which I really like. I sometimes use it for Sunday School teaching also.
