Kids' Quest Study Bible NIrV Review
I'm always super excited to do Bible reviews for kids! There's so many out there, it's so hard to know which ones are best for each child. I think this Bible was beautifully done. The cover is bright and colorful and pleasing to the eye. At first glance, the inside looks like any other kids Bible, but upon further inspection, the reader sees Questions and Answers on the bottoms of random pages. Questions include "Why can't we see God?" and "How do you get permission to get to Heaven?". Each answer is phrased in a way that a child would be able to understand it.
Before I had this Bible, I was not familiar with the NIrV Bible. I was used to using the NIV or KJV, so I was wondering what the difference was. In a lot of ways, the NIrV is much the same as the NIV, except that it's written more like a story. It uses words that are easier for a younger child to understand and read. It is recommended to be for children ages 6-10, and estimated to be written at a third grade reading level.
The beginning of each Book includes who wrote it, and a brief introduction to that book. The writing is in red and blue, which I thought was nice and bright.
I loved this Bible for many different reasons, but one of them being that it is a unisex Bible. Many Bibles I see in the stores are made for either a boy or a girl, so it's nice that I can use this one for multiple children. I also loved the diversity of the questions asked. They are actually asked by children, so I think many children will be able to relate to them. I also loved that it is a hardcover Bible, so it is extra durable! I would definitely recommend this Bible to anyone with children just learning to read and beyond. I rate it as 5 stars!
