NIV Adventure Bible for Early Readers

Ready for Adventure? The Adventure Bible for Early Readers takes you on a fun, exciting journey through God’s Word. Along the way you’ll meet all types of people, see all sorts of places, and learn all kinds of things about the Bible. Most importantly, you’ll grow closer in your relationship with God. Here’s a quick tour through the features:
  • Life in Bible Times - Articles and illustrations describe what life was like in ancient days
  • People in Bible Times - Articles offer close-up looks at amazing people of the Bible
  • Let’s Live It! - Hands-on activities help you apply biblical truths to your life
  • Did You Know? - Interesting facts help you understand God's Word
  • Words to Treasure - Great verses to memorize
  • Twenty special pages - Games and other Bible fun, all with a jungle safari theme
  • Book introductions, a dictionary, and color maps
  • Includes the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) that is perfect for children learning to read and explore the Bible for the first time on their own.
I was immediately impressed with the cover of the book. It is, in short, really cool. It is 3D and just something that will grab kids attention.

This 1,584 page book says it targets ages 6 to 10 years old. I think that is probably pretty close to accurate, but I personally feel that my 6 year old is a little young to fully appreciate this Bible. He looked at the cover, smiled, and quickly handed it back to me. 

I can read this with him, but he can't really claim ownership of something this large quite yet. However, while Scriptures may be confusing for early elementary school children, they will be able to start gleaning information from the added features which are colorful and sprinkled throughout the book. Having parents read the word aloud and discuss the topics would be beneficial even if the child can't quite read the book himself yet. And, as children get older and understand more about God, the Bible can come to life in their lives.

A huge thank you to who is letting me have a copy of this awesome Bible in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
