My oldest loved her Veggie Bible. With all the choices available my son chose the same thing. It is very inviting to young kids. They love reading it. A parent simply can't complain when kids Bibles wear out from use. The reason for only 3 stars us this. I didn't realize how different the wording would be between the NIV and the NIrV. For adults it may not be such an issue, but for an 8 year old memorizing, its a little confusing. I wish they would would messing with all these translations. Its harder for the kids.
This bible was purchased as a gift and was perfect for the 7 year old young man that it was given to. He recognized the characters and was fascinated with the cartoons infused in the pages as well as the explanations of each chapter of the bible.
I love that it is a fun way for kids to get familiar with the bible. Great gift!
I really like this Bible. I love how engaging it is for young children. My 8 year old saw it when it came in the mail and said "I want it!" This Bible is so colorful and fun. From the full color comic strip pages to the cover pages for each book of the Bible that tells about each book, it is great from cover to cover.
The features included are:
Veggies Stories-- cute little comic strips that tell some of our favorite veggie versions of Bible stories.
Book Introductions-- tells about each book of the Bible and gives all the important info about each book.
Veggies Values--these little sections tuck in little tidbits about certain values such as patience, love, and putting others first, just to name a few.
Remember This-- these are highlighted verses for kids to remember.
I really only have one negative about this Bible. The translation. I have never been a fan of NIV or NIrV, but I ordered this for a friend who doesn't mind it. I knew the translation going into it so I won't let it hinder my review. This negative is the only one I could find for this Bible. This Bible would be a great gift for any child in your life and I see lots of kids being interested in reading their Bibles because of this Bible.
Thank you to the BookLookBlogger program and Zondervan Kids for the chance to review this Bible. a positive review was not required.
My girls love veggie tales and this bible is a beautiful addition to our library. I have 4 girls (ages 7, 5, 2 and 6 months) and it has been great to read together as a family. Written with simplified language, easy to understand, great notes included and your favorite veggies are included in pictures. Wonderful addition to our bible readings and would definitely recommend in general and for veggie tales fans!
