The Beginner’s Bible: Holy Bible (NIRV) My 2nd grader loves to read and so I thought taking a review of this new NIRV Bible, designed at a 3rd grade reading level would be just the thing for her. The Bible is based upon the NIV but does not follow it word for word, rather, it takes some of the longer phrasing and words and brings conciseness and brevity to the page. This Bible is specifically designed for younger readers and those just jumping into Bible reading at any age. The updated changes of the newest NIV version are also incorporated into the text of the NIrV. Some of the wording in the text of the NIrV helps readers get a vision of the importance of the point an author is trying to make. In Genesis 3, as God gives the curse to Adam, Moses writes, “You will have to work hard and sweat a lot to produce the food you eat (Gen. 3:19).” The notion of tilling the ground and working the soil for food demands a great amount of sweat and this is indication of the hard work that farming will be for Adam. In a different chapter and book, John writes, “The Word became a human being. He made his home with us (John 1:14).” Generally we see “became flesh,” or “tabernacle among us,” but this translation points to the temporal concept that at a point in time Jesus became a human being, that he wasn’t human prior to the incarnation. Another key highlight of this Bible is a section at the beginning about getting to know Jesus. It is so important that we teach our little ones about the center of our faith, and the editors thought about this through. One of the parts of this version of the Bible that my 8 year old daughter really picked up on was the 150 Famous Bible Stories. She told me that it was great that she could read a story and check off a box after reading the specified text. I thing this thematic way of digging into the Bible is a good way at learning the story of the Bible also. Overall, I am glad to have reviewed this version of the Bible. It came with the added encouragement that my daughter would dive right into reading as well. Thanks to BookLook Bloggers for the copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I would say at least 3 before they leave home. We want our children rooted in the Word. To us it's unacceptable to just send them to church and expect others to teach them about the Bible. We as parents have a HUGE responsibility in this too and it is to supply them with these things to not only teach them with but also for those that are old enough to venture out on their own. The Beginners Bible products are a brilliant idea if you want to give your children something substantial to use to actual teach them the Bible. They even have a Bible that I am sure would make a perfect gift for those children that need a "first" Bible and they are between the ages of 6-10 years of age. This one is the New International Reader's Version and its simple to understand. The part my boys like the most are The Beginner's Bible Illustrations that are included. This Bible is a great idea for their first Bible. **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher.
I can not give a review, because I never received the NIrV Beginner's Holy Bible. I feel I lost out on the money I spent for this book. Have A Nice Day
