My Review:
Thank you, Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.  

Visuals in a Bible when you are a kid make a huge impact and difference at attention!  One of my lucky girls I took to kids camp this year is now the owner of this Bible.   I knew I needed to bring a kids Bible with me to kids camp and sure enough, on our first day one little girl opened up her King James version and couldn't read or understand any of it.   I have nothing against that translation but I am right in the same predicament has her with not able to understand and comprehend what is going on in that translation.   This one is a great NIV translation! The little girl I gave it to was glowing and smiling with excitement and gratitude!  While we waited for different things at camp we would open this bible up and find a new image and read about it and discuss it!   It was one of my favorite things we did at camp! We enjoyed the pictures within the Bible but when it was time to find some verses we found that this Bible made it more challenging to find verses.   You know how in most Bibles the book and chapter are in the corner of the page so you can easily flip through it and find the right book?  Well, it's not that way in this book.  The book and chapter are located more in the center of the page which makes it a challenge to quickly find your scriptures. It is still a very nice Bible and the girl I gave it too didn't complain at all... but then again I was the adult leader always helping the kids find the right verses in their Bibles so for me it was more frustrating.  It's not a deal breaker by any means and it might help others to rely on their memory or help them to want to memorize where scripture is located even more!

Justus has a Veggie tales Bible. I would love to add this for him. He's not an avid reader, but I think the pictures would help him be more engaged!
