At the front of the NIrV Kids' Quest Study Bible is a presentation page, "Table of Contents", "Books of the Bible Alphabetically", "Introduction to This Bible", and "A Word About the NIrV". The text of the NIrV Kids' Devotional Bible is laid out in two columns per page, with blue text (including the words of Christ) and orange headings. This is the NIrV version of the Bible (© 1995, 1996, 1998, 2014).
Each book of the Bible is preceded by an introduction (telling basics like: who wrote it, why, what happens, what can be learned about God, important figures, when did it happen, etc.). At the end of many books of the Bible is a "Quest Challenge" (a real life challenge to live as God desires) and/or a "Quest Clue" (a clue of where to look in the Bible for more information about a given topic). At the back of the NIrV Kids' Devotional Bible is a 10-page Dictionary and a 4-page Topical Index (referencing the topics discussed in the "Kids' Questions" sections).
Throughout the Bible (at the bottom of the pages) are questions from kids and answers (from the Questions Children Ask About God series), featuring little cartoon illustrations. There are references to a main verse to check out (found on the page where the question is) as well as related verses (from elsewhere in the Bible). The answers to the questions are short, to-the-point, and informative. Not all questions are directly from the text (ex: "Why Are Nuclear Weapons Even Around?"is asked and answered in Daniel 9), but those are the exception, not the rule.
I found the NIrV Kids' Devotional Bible to be informative and a great start in how to study the Bible for kids.

One way to handle them is to just answer the question outright. Another way is to show our children how to find the answers for themselves. I personally like the second option. Teaching children how to research an answer gives them lifelong skills that will give them sound discernment especially if they are researching from a trusted resource.
I believe that trusted source for answers is the Bible. The new Kids' Quest Study Bible is great for those curious minded kiddos. Throughout the book there are real questions from kids with follow-up commentary and Scripture references that allow the child to read and research for themselves the correct answer.
This Bible uses the NIrV translation which is targeted at a third-grade reading level. I like this because it allows younger children that have yet to acquire advanced reading skills to understand what they are reading. This particular translation is also great for those who use English as their second language.
If you are looking for a Bible for one of your children you certainly can't go wrong with this particular edition.
I received a copy of this Bible to facilitate my review. (Posted on 7/12/2016)

The cover of the book even has a big question mark on it and calls the Bible a quest! It makes jumping in to read it even more exciting!
This bible retails for $29.99 and from Zondervan. The translation is NIrV which I believe is one that is much easier for children to understand. (Posted on 6/5/2016)

The questions are spread throughout the Bible along with the answers and scripture references you can look up to go along with the answers. The dictionary will be very useful for your child and so will the topical index. Especially if they want to search for a specific topic. It tells them where to find that specific topic by page numbers. And for kids, using page numbers makes a bit more sense to them.
This is not loaded down with a tone of "extras" that you might find in an adult or teen Bible which keeps it from being overwhelming for kids.
Overall I think its a good Bible for kids 6-10. (Posted on 5/3/2016)

The NIrV Kids' Quest Study bible is filled with over 500 questions and answers for kids. And with this being an NIrV, it's written at a third-grade reading level, so it's easy to read and understand. I was first introduced to NIrV a few years back and quickly fell in love with this style when it comes to teaching kids and helping them understand the Bible easier.
At the beginning of each book, you get a brief introduction.
• Who wrote the book?
• Why was it written?
• What happens in this book?
• What do we learn about God in this book?
• Who is important in this book?
• When did this happen?
We love going over these and once again, it's written in a way so that the kids can understand.
Also, the addition of the dictionary as well as the subject guide is fantastic for helping kids find exactly what they are looking for.
Throughout this Bible, you'll find kids' questions. These are questions that have been asks by kids and they do include an answer.
Some questions you might find in the book are:
"Why Can't I have all the things I want?"
"Why do people sin when they know it's wrong?"
"How did Noah build a boat that was so big?"
"Can angels appear as people?"
Without a doubt, I believe out of all four of my kids, I have been asked these questions. Kids are curious and this Bible is great when it comes to giving them the explanation they may need.
This Bible also has Quest Challenges to help your child apply the Bible's teachings to their own life by pointing to scripture.
Each Quest Challenges has the following:
• I wonder...
• Real Life Challenge
• Quest Clue
All in all, I highly recommend this Bible. My third-grader loves it.

It is in great readable kid-friendly form. I like that the print is in blue and orange ink. This Bible has tons to offer children! Ages 6-10.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. (Posted on 4/15/2016)

First of all, the NIrV is patterned after the NIV, but much easier to read. Each book begins with “Who wrote this book?”, “Why was this book written?”, “What happens in this book?”, “What do we learn about God in this book?” “Who is important in this book?”, and, “When did this happen?”…all questions to familiarize and prepare you to understand what you are about to read. I also like that there are “Kid’s Questions” and “Quest Challenges”. For example, the last “Kid’s Question” at the end of Revelation is, “Why can’t we put new books into the Bible?” Also, included after Revelation is a dictionary and a topical index…help when studying God’s Word.
I do like this Bible and would recommend it for young to older teens.
