5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest kids Bible available 20 Nov 2002
This bible is a gem. The problem with all other 'children's' bibles is that they are adult translations with pretty pictures. This is not. It is translated from the original Greek and Hebrew, especially for children, and I recommend it for any child of primary school age. In fact, it is the bible that all primary schools should use in class for RE lessons! I have to admit using it myself when I really cannot understand what most other versions are getting at. This should be on every child's bookshelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good starter Bible 15 Dec 2005
Where do you go once your child is moving on from 'Bible stories' to wanting a 'proper' Bible that they can use for daily study with Bible notes etc?
We have started each of our kids off with this version - hardcover or paperback. Though the language is fine for a competent junior-school-level reader, our older two have happily moved onto the youth edition (same language, cooler cover, 'teen relevant' little inserts, but not too gimmicky). The style of this one is probably best for pre-teen - go for the youth one after that.
This is not a book of Bible stories (though there are plenty of good ones around), and I'd agree that the paper is a little thin. The problem is that this is a complete Bible, not a Reader's Digest version, so thicker paper would make it pretty hard to read in bed (which in my experience is where our girls use it...)

I think this translation is excellent to use with children. Most schools use GNB or NIV, but this has far less Bible/Christian jargon in it, so is much better for children. In fact I think it's a good translation for anyone who hasn't read the Bible much before, whatever their age. I gave copies of it to members of a children's club I run, for kids aged 7-9, which seems just old enough to start working their way round chapters, verses and books of a 'real' Bible for the first time. They don't seem to struggle with the thin pages (as was suggested is a problem by some other reviewers) fact I think it makes them take more care than they do with other books, which has to be a good thing! Only thing that would make it better would be more picture pages, and perhaps intro pages about each Bible book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bible for children 3 Jan 2007
I bought this for my 7yo, and was so impressed with it, I showed it to our vicar - who promptly bought some for Sunday Club! We even used this translation for our recent crib service!

My daughter loves reading it, and having it read to her.

In fact, can I confess to using it for myself, for some of the more difficult to understand parts of the bible?

I agree, the paper is thin, but if it were any thicker, the bible would be difficult to handle, due to its thickness!

5.0 out of 5 stars great Bible 23 Jan 2006
My 6 year old daughter uses this bible every night. She has some Bible activity book which she does using this Bible to find the references. I help her find them and she reads from the Bible. It is easy text but I like the fact that is is a 'real' Bible, not just stories. she is learning what the Bible really is and what its for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to move on to from 'Bible stories' bibles 27 July 2007
By Thia
I wanted a complete 'proper' bible for my primary age child that they could read themselves, and could be taught how to find a specific book, chapter and verse. This is it. My 6.5 year old loves it, and although we had a chat about it's thin pages, he manages it fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says 9 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This Bible is billed as a complete translation of the entire Bible, but with children in mind - unlike so many children's Bibles which either leave bits out, or retell stories in their own words, or both! So if your child has read all the latter bibles and you want them to have a chance to read the actual "Holy Bible" then this is a very good product. It translates in short clear sentences in modern English and always indicates clearly who is speaking. It also has some full-page child-friendly illustrations in colour. It does not compromise the text, however.
It is technically a "dynamic equivalent" translation - like the NIV or the Good News, and unlike The Message or the older Living Bible whhich are technically "paraphrases". So if you are looking for your child to encounter the Word of God in the same sense that you do in your quiet time, or in church, this is the Bible for you. It is an excellent stepping stone to either the NIV or the GN. My daughter (13) has made that step and reads the Good News mainly. My son (9), wanting a 'real Bible' to take away to camp, was delighted when we bought him his own copy of this publication.
The only drawback is the shortening of sentences which can sometimes breakup the feel or flow of a text (e.g. in some famous Pauline or Johannine passages). When your child becomes aware of this, however, it is simply evidence that it is time to make the very smooth transition to one of the many translations you yourself use.
Excellent product - it does what it says. Revd Philip Joy, Essex.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good first Bible for younger children 24 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I run a Bible study group for children under 12 and I needed a Bible that I could use with the children. Up until now they have been bringing their own Bibles some good and some that are just a collection of bible stories not designed for study. This Bible is easy to read, clearly set out and easy to find your way around (from a childs point of view). The pictures are beautiful, I thinks it helps children to get a clearer idea if there are some good images to focus on, and these are just perfect. The Bible has a hard cover and will last a good few years. I would recommend this as a first Bible to anyone with younger children who wish to study, or encourage their child's faith.
