Good starter Bible,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: International Children's Bible: New Century Version (Bible Ncv) (Paperback)
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...)

You mentioned the Teen's edition of this Bible, could you tell me the title, as I'm looking for a Bible for older children and I absolutely agree with you on how wonderful this Bible is for children (and me)
