Great transaltion for children (and adults actually) and nice pictures,
This review is from: NCV ICB HB (International Childrens Bible) (Hardcover)
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)...in 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.
