As a child I remember my very first Bible. I was excited when chosen to review the Zondervan Bible given to me to review by Bible Gateway. What I like about this Bible is how easy it is for a child to understand and how its broken down into mini sections making Bible study easy. My son who is 8 has grown out of the Bible picture book and I want him to study the word more. Christian cartoons are great but you also have to study the word of God through the Bible.


The NirV, The Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids is a brand new kind of Bible. It allows ages 4-8 to read the full Bible without chapter and verse numbers or footnotes that are helpful for adults but can be very distracting for kids.

This Bible presents the story of God’s people in single column format with an extremely legible font. With nearly every turn of the page, children encounter full-color illustrations and kid-friendly maps that illuminate the Bible stories within.

For children who want to read on their own or with an adult nearby, this is the perfect full-text Bible for kids who appreciate the power of story and of God’s Word.

Features of the NirV, The illustrated Holy Bible for Kids include:

  • Bonus full-color double-sided poster
  • Over 750 full-color illustrations
  • Full-color, child-friendly maps
  • Single-column text
  • Easy-to-read exclusive Zondervan NIrV Comfort Print typeface
  • The complete text of the New International Readers’ Version (NIrV) of the Bible, created at a third grade reading just for developing readers

What I also appreciate about this Bible is that they depict the people in the Bible of a darker shade of color. I love how they put the 10 commandments in a way in which kids would understand. This Bible will be great for Bible study. The only thing I don’t like about this Bible but is typical for all Bibles is the print it is small.
