This NIV Bible, by Zonderkidz, is intended to allow children to read the Bible along with images that will allow them to really explore and understand the stories, people, places, and history. It also had footnotes all throughout the Bible, as it is a study Bible intended for learning.
I honestly didn’t think that the Bible had that many images in it, just a few small ones every few pages. I didn’t think that it had enough pictures to call itself a “visual” study Bible. However, the images included were very interesting, and the rest of the study material was informative and done well, in my opinion. It was all well organized, too.
The Bible is hardcover and very sturdy. I think it would hold up well over a long period of time. It has the nice glossy pages, Bible-thin of course. It has a nice ribbon attached to mark your place.
Overall, I didn’t think that this Bible was special really, or better in any way than lots of other study Bibles for kids that I have seen. If someone is looking for a Bible for an older kid, I’d recommend this one. I think it has pretty much the same features that you’d find in any study Bible.
