- Review by Fitzysmom
This edition is especially nice because it is very affordably priced but it includes all of the features that you want in a beginner Bible. If you are planning a Vacation Bible School or Backyard Bible Club pick up several copies for the kids attending.
I also like to use it for supplements to gifts for birthday parties and other gift giving occasions. If you'd like to dress it up a bit just make a custom cover with washi tape or some other crafty idea or purchase a Bible cover. There is a presentation page that you can personalize for the special recipient.
One other thing we use this particular Bible for is the English as a Second Language classes at our church. The price is right and the reading level is perfect for those just beginning to grasp the complexities of the English language.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate this review. (Posted on 7/22/2015)
- Review by The IE Mommy
It is available in both pink and blue so it's good for boys and girls! Since my five year old daughter Paige is graduating Kindergarten this week, I thought this was the perfect gift choice for her. It is designed for ages 7 and up but she will be six soon and if she's anything like her brother, I know first grade is the year to really get into reading!
There are several things I like about this Bible. One is the affordability! At just $7.99 I think it goes down as the cheapest Bible I've ever seen!
I like that it's made to be a gift so there is a presentation page which is always a nice touch.
One of my other favorite things is that it's the NIrV version which is the New International Reader's Version. It's like the original NIV and was adapted from it but it uses shorter sentences and simpler words which makes it easier for young readers.
Another fun feature is "The ABC's of Salvation" which I really like because it puts it in really simple terms for the little ones. This is something we have been talking to our kids about a lot lately and this really simplifies a complex subject.
There is a Bible dictionary which is another great tool as well as reading plans. Paige won't be able to do those just yet but I know by the end of the year we'll be using them!
The only downside is that it's a paperback binding and that can be rough with the little ones. A Bible is made to be read over and over so should be designed to take some hard wear and tear. However, that being said, it IS only $7.99 so you get what you pay for. You are not going to find a Bible that's hardbound under $10 or probably even under $20!
I like that Zondervan is always coming up with great gift giving ideas and since graduation season is here, this Gift and Award Bible is a great one! (Posted on 6/1/2015)

The Bible is very simple but it includes tips on how to start reading the Bible as well as a reading plan to make it easy for kids to get in a habit of completing daily reading of His word.
Thank you Zondervan for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine. (Posted on 5/21/2015)
