Dry and boring are words of the past with this study Bible. With grabbing tidbits, an easy to read lay-out, and tons of other informational goodies, this is a Bible to grab onto and digest to the heart's content. Study Bibles aren't usually a book which perk kids' interest. Neither is the sight of a nearly 2000 word volume a reason to dance for joy. But this Bible surprises by not talking down to kids or soaring way above their heads. Each book of the Bible starts out with a one page run-down with basic information about the book: who wrote it, what are the key people, what stories, etc. There's also a photo of a modern day view of a place mentioned in the book or something which has to do with a verse in the book. The chapters are presented in a single column with a yellowish sidebar along each page. Here, short dabs of helpful information and explanations are presented with reference to the verse. These are much easier to understand than old fashioned footnotes, simple to read and presented in a very understandable way. Colorful and interesting diagrams are also peppered along the sides to visually support some information and provide an easy to understand summary (for example: a diagram to Amos' Visions). There are also small footnotes at the bottom of the text to add extra information and assistance on top of everything else, but these are not the main aide. A table of weights and measures, an index and maps round off the end. And, as a small extra bonus, there's a blue ribbon attached to use as a always ready and simple bookmark. This is a NIV (New International Version) translation—which, of course, is a matter of opinion to its correctness (as always)—but it is a version children can easily understand and read. The notes along the side help with any terminology stumbling blocks, making it very reader friendly. There is some space for personal notes along the side, but not too much, and the text itself is in a relatively small print — not necessarily 'highlighter' friendly. So more intense fans of scribbling down thoughts and notes will need an extra notebook on the side. But this study Bible isn't necessarily hitting that area hard. This one is about bringing the text to life and helping the reader understand the background behind the verses. And these are tidbits which kids will love and devour. Things passed by in just a word or two in the verses are explained. . .and that in a simple, clear way. (Why tents needed to be bigger, how was a funeral procession conducted, why armies destroyed Moab, etc) Often things, events and objects are assumed to be understood, but this Bible explains the cultural differences, reasons behind certain actions, or what something simply is. Summed up, this is a Bible which encourages children to not only learn the verses and meanings but opens up the past. It uses visual means to sum up information, show connections and simple bring the past to life. Even adults will enjoy diving in and are sure to grab up things they didn't know before. I received a complimentary copy through Booklook bloggers and found this Bible so interesting and well done that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts.

I'd grown up with King James Version and NIV Bibles. The only bits of pictures inside were those in the glossary at the end. I had always wanted more, like a map to show me where things were happening. Or maybe an illustration of something, like the Ark of the Covenant. Kids are often very visual, so finding a Bible that contains maps, images of artifacts and more is great. I have a kid's Bible study in my home every other week or so and had the opportunity to use this Bible. It was helpful in showing the maps of the area. There's a map tracing Jesus' ministry, a map of Paul's ministry, a map of the Israelites with Moses and on and on. Sections that have lists of events that happened are given special treatment with bar graphs, infographs or tables. The ten plagues of Egypt can be read in the verses, but there's a page with illustrations of those same plagues along with the related Bible verses. A bar chart displays the various ages of Old Testament ancestors and the years they lived. It's nice to have as it gives a quick snapshot of each and their age for comparison. One feature that I especially enjoyed throughout was the title page for each book that listed information specific to that particular book. It really is a great resource. Besides that, the Bible is hardcover bound and has an attractive cover. Overall, I think kids will be able to get a lot out of this Bible. I think even teens and young adults may appreciate the content within. Overall, the NIV Kids’ Visual Study Bible  is a nice study Bible to have, for kids and adults.

This is a perfect book or Bible with a beautiful writing and compelling to read and this book also had wrote Genesis, through many believe Moses is the author. Genesis tell us how God created the universe and human beings that will make kids want to learn more. It also cover the special promises God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This is giving us to learn about God created all things. He loves people, but he will punish sin. God promises to save people who trust him. All this people Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, Jacob and Rachel, Joseph who are the key of this Bible that will bring a story and took to many place like, in Mesopotamia, Canaan, which is also called the promised land. The rest of Genesis took place in Egypt together with the map inside this Bible also have Mount Sinai too. This will brings the Bible back more to life with in full color illustrated splendor. Featuring over 700 illustrations, colorful photos, engaging maps and important facts located near the relevant verse this study Bible is easy to understand and fun to read. I highly recommend to everyone must to read this books not just only kinds. “ I received this book free from BookLook Bloggers program for this review "

I was intrigued by the idea that it had more than the books of the Bible and would have images and notes to help my kids see where the Bible happened and gain context. What surprised me was the fact that my six-year-old (who’s reading at a fifth grade or higher level) was the one who latched onto this book. He is a reluctant writer, but the first day he started reading Revelations and making notes in the margin space provided. I know what you’re thinking (I did, too). Why would a child pick Revelations as his starting point? I don’t know, but my 16 year old had great insight. It may be the perfect time to read Revelations because the 6 year old has no context to tell him what he’s reading is impossible. Oh to have that child like wonder and faith! Back to the Kids’ Visual Study Bible. It has well designed charts interposed with images. One chart gives visualization to the number of men that David led his men to defeat. Then there’s one illustrating Solomon’s wealth. In the margins there are notes about key verses or explanations of easy to misunderstand words like Almugwood, east wind, milk of nations, Samaritans, and many more. The way the Bible is laid out makes it welcoming to young readers, but also contains the information to help a middle grade reader move to the next level in Bible study. I’ve been delighted to watch my youngest carry this Bible around and adopt it as his permanent, go-to Bible. If you have a child who is ready to dive into personal Bible study, this could be the Bible to help them understand what they’re reading.

The NIV Kid's Visual Study Bible would serve as a great beginner's study bible not just for kids but maybe even for an adult new believer. It is complete with interesting facts pertaining to the time a particular book was written, pictures, maps and various illustrations to make the text come alive. Its vibrant colors and presentations are sure to keep the reader engaged while learning about life's precepts and most importantly, getting to know more about God, the Creator of all things from what is revealed in His written word. Each book's synopsis is presented in a graphical format covering the author of the book, why it was written, lessons to be learned and themes to be expected. The pages are sectioned in a vertical column format bordered with a yellow sidebar where the commentaries on select key verses are located. It has additional insights to stimulate your child's curiosity in visually captivating infographics. Highly informative not just theologically but also with historical and cultural backgrounds focusing on key regions. The commentary written is geared to easily be understandable even for readers as young as elementary school-aged children. The book is approximately 2 inches thick including the cover, truly visual and colorful all throughout which gives it a youthful vibe. It comes with a convenient built-in ribbon bookmark in blue. It is in hardcover and is sewn for durability to withstand years to come. If you have children attending Vacation Bible School, it would make a great gift and an excellent resource to take. It is never too early to nurture your child's interest especially when it comes to spiritual things which can make a lifetime impact that carries on to eternity and is needed even more than ever before.

NIV Kids' Visual Study Bible, Hardcover ZONDERKIDZ / 2017 / HARDCOVER The NIV Kids' Visual Study Bible, for ages 8-12, brings the Bible to life in four-color illustrated splendor. This study Bible includes a spectacular full-color interior featuring over 700 illustrations, photos, infographics, and maps on every page that visually represent key Bible information. Each page also features key facts located near the relevant verse. Interesting facts; colorful, engaging maps; photographs; and illustrations make this a Bible they'll want to explore. This Bible uses the full NIV text, 2011 edition. Each page features a two-inch sidebar on the outside edge with study notes as well as over 700 full-color maps, pictures, and infographics. The text is in a four-inch column on the inside edge.  Pros:              The full color is eye-catching              The graphics are interesting and informative              The study notes are easy to understand and bring clarity to the text, examples: 1 -Numbers 23:19 The meaning of "God is not human, that he should lie": This verse shows God's character. He is completely truthful. He does not change his mind. Because God had blessed Israel, no human power such as Balaam's could take away or change this blessing. And 2.  Luke 17:31 Why people would be on the roof: People often relaxed on their rooftops, which were flat.  Cons:             The font is small – could be a problem for some This bible does not talk down to the age group it was designed for, I believe this Bible could easily benefit the tween or teen and even the adult beginner with Bible study. I concur with another reviewer, who suggested taking out the “Kids” in the title to appeal to a wider segment of readers. Comes in several different covers to appeal to a variety of interest. I received a copy of the Bible from Handlebar Publishing for my review.

KIDS NIV VISUAL STUDY BIBLE Explore The Story Of The Bible Peoples, Places, and History Published by Zondervan Looking for a way to get kids to study the Bible, this Bible might be the answer. Published for kids from about the age of 8 through their teens, this study Bible is a great way to introduce them to God’s Word. An easy to read and understand translation, the NIV is just right. The added study notes and notes about important verses are on each page are in a different colored background then the text, making them each to read and separate from the text. The introduction to each book includes; why the book was written, what to learn about God, where it happened, and the stories included in that book. There are over 700 charts, maps, photos and pictures to add interest to a Bible study. In the back of the Bible is an index for the graphics and maps plus a weight and measure chart to help with the Biblical measures. All this information is done in a beautiful, colorful and easy to read format. When you add the NIV translation to this it makes for an easy to understand study for kids. (Adults will enjoy it too, after all we are kids at heart.) I received this book free from Handlebar Review Program, http://handlebarpublishing.com/. I was not required to write a positive review.

NIV Kids' Visual Study Bible is a heavy, hardcover Bible, with colorful yellow sidebars on each page, with plenty of room to write notes on. I like the size of the font, too, it's just the perfect size for reading. I also like that the cover is hard and it'd be hard to peel the cover apart. I was kind of expecting it to be pop-up pictures, for some reason, maybe it was the way I read the description. I was disappointed that it wasn't. I did like the maps and photographs though, it helps to visualize things. A great Bible for tweens. I'd like it if it were KJV or NKJV as some churches are KJV only. I was provided a free copy of this Bible by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I am always on the look out for things I can give my kids or future grandkids and for me, the one book I want for any child is a great Bible that is friendly, fun and filled with things that will keep them interested and wanting to read God's Word. I am so happy to review the Kids' NIV Visual Bible. While the font may not be what I would call "kid friendly" more suited for kids a little older from 8-13, it does contain amazing photos that illustrate the points being made on each chapter or section of the Bible. There are full color maps that show that places beginning talked about as you read so you can take your teaching even further than you thought possible before when comparing the places in the world today as to the places historically being referred to in the Bible. Perhaps so of my favorite parts are the story of Noah and the Ark. There is a colorful picture that outlines how long Noah was really on the ark and how each of those time periods is broken down, from the 7 days Noah enters the ark a week before the flood; 40 days of the rain surging on the land; 150 days the water recedes and rests on Mount Ararat, and finally the 178 days for the water to continue to recede and the releasing of the birds until Noah finally leaves the ark. For me, as a teacher, kids respond well to visuals and this Kids' NIV visual Bible offers more than 700 images to take your child not only into learning more about the Bible but more importantly retaining what they have seen and heard. There is even an image showing how large the Ark was in comparison to a football field or a modern day house so kids can really understand the magnitude of what Noah accomplished without modern tools or electricity. There are some great questions to engage your child with as well, such as why was an olive leaf special? Why does the Bible include lists of names? Why did Abram lie about his wife? It even includes important information about why woman and men are made differently and what God's plans were for them. I absolutely love the simple illustrations that help me understand things better like the age of our early ancestors, how some lived to be almost 1000 years and who were they? What the differences were in the staff that Moses used and Aaron used; a great visual on the differences between biblical calendars and current modern day calendars that your child can use to tell what the months are in Old Testament chapters. I received the Kids' NIV Visual Bible compliments of ZonderKidz, a division of Zondervan Publishing and Handlebar Central. There are so many things that I know parents would love in getting this for a child they know. It would make a great children's study Bible as well using the New International Version to help children understand the meanings of what is being said and it helps them to stay engaged. There is a presentation page that makes this a perfect Bible to give any child as a gift, a table of contents to help them find their way to specific books of the Bible, an infographics index in the back to show the locations of all illustrations in case you're looking for a particular one for your child, and a maps section. There are simply too many great things to list, but rest assured, it will be one for your child to love and growth with. I would give this a 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and it even includes a ribbon marker to keep track of where your child is!

Zondervan has created one of the most useful Study Bibles aimed at a young audience. Loads of visuals (the cover says over 700) and notes are what give this Bible significant value. The text is set against the center column; notes occupy the inch-and-a-half of the outside edges of the page. Though I did not do a thorough search, I could not find a page without at least one note, most had two. Some notes are longer - occupying an entire page. These pages tend to give extended details on places or individuals. Additional helps include an index (not extensive, but better than that found in most children’s Bibles), a 12-page Bible atlas (indexed), and book introductions. The Bible would attract children of all ages, though the text would seem to be better suited to older elementary or middle school students. The title might discourage its use by the middle school child, but it the contents would make it a perfect fit. I suppose parents will need to evaluate how their own children will respond to the title if they are thinking of buying this for a middle school child. This book would make a perfect gift for a child entering fourth, fifth or sixth grade - they would then have the Bible and be accustomed to using it as they age. The book would also have a place in the church library where it could be used by a number of children for reading and personal study. ______________ This review is based on a free copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.

It just so happens that I received my copy of NIV KIDS VISUAL STUDY BIBLE as I was getting ready to study my Sabbath School lesson- so I used it. Of course Zondervan published this Bible for children between the ages of 8 to 12 but God’s word is God’s word. The assumption is that around 8 years of age young people should be able to read God’s word and not an overview as you see with many children’s Bible. The NIV KIDS VISUAL STUDY BIBLE is a graduation of sorts for many young people however the pictures make it fun and the explanations / commentaries were easy to understand. As I said, I was using the Bible to do my own Bible Study so I went to Judges 4-6, which is what we were studying. Within the Bible each page has two columns one white and one golden yellow. Scripture is written on the inner white column while commentary and pictures are on the outer yellow column. On page 360 there was a picture of a man leading two oxen attached to a cart and underneath was a comment regarding Judges 4:1-2: “How the Lord “sold” his people The Lord “sold them” by allowing a pagan tribe to defeat Israel and make them slaves to Jabin.” I knew that but I didn’t know that! This explanation brought clarity to a verse that I have often read but rarely meditated on. Another example of what I learned: A few weeks ago I was on Facebook and one of my FBFs called someone a Leviathan. Well I did look it up in my Bible however I was it again in the NIV KIDS VISUAL STUDY BIBLE. Isaiah 27:1 note: Liviathan This was a mthological sea monster. Here, it is a symbol of wicked nations such as Egypt. Why is this important? Because this study Bible is designed for children but it is actually informative enough that grown-ups could use it. Yes; there are tables, charts and maps. This is indeed a great Bible. —written by Marsha L F Randolph Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.

NIV Kids' Visual Study Bible, Hardcover, Full Color Interior Explore the Story of the Bible—People, Places, and History is a brand new study bible published by Zondervan.  Unlike other bibles published for kids- this bible actually includes full color graphics, diagram, illustrations and photos to accompany the bible text.  Each page includes side bars featuring simplified study notes on selected verses and bible concepts.  Most bibles for kids on the market may advertise that they are kids' bibles.  In reality they are nothing more than the standard basic bible text in small font with colorful color and maybe a few pages of colorful inserts. I feel like those themed bible are nothing more than standard pew bibles with a kids' cover.  This bible is completely different and true to the title it helps the young reader explore the bible.  I feel this bible is suitable for kids even up to teenaged years as the study features are flexible and adaptable to appeal to older children.  Younger readers will need guidance with this bible as it is the complete NIV text and the standard sized font is small.  I'd even say that anyone new to the bible will find this as a suitable bible. If it were not for the cover with the word "Kids" in bold, that all ages would find this to be a great bible.  Personally I feel they should remove the word "Kids'" from the title and rename this bible "The NIV Visual Bible" to reflect its versatility. rather than to exclude older adolescent readers or adults.  This is the best kids study bible I have seen in a long time.  It's format is similar to the NIV Quest bible which is marketed to adult readers with the study helps and notes delegated to the color blocked side bars distinct from the main text.  As a blogger for booklook I received a copy of this bible for the purpose of writing this review.

Explore the Story of The Bible People, Places, and History The Kid’s NIV Visual Study Bible is an exceptional study tool, with drawings, photographs, maps, and numerous facts that help put passages easier to understand and to put in context. This Bible is geared toward children ages 5-12, but in my opinion, it’s suitable and helpful for all ages. The hardback book is thick and sturdy, has an attached ribbon page keeper, and with 1,952 pages it contains the entire text of the NIV translation (New International Version) and is chockfull of additional study facts and info. The thickness of the book might make it inconvenient to carry to weekly services or study group, but is incredible for home study. Another great point of this book is the one column Bible text, which allows wide, colorful margins that display illustrations (over 700), interesting facts, and enough room leftover for your own handwritten study notes (or if you’re a Bible journaling enthusiast—your drawings.) This study Bible is colorful, engaging, interacting, and most importantly brings the Word of God alive off the page. It’s a wonderful addition to any home library, and will certainly change and bless lives. (There is a presentation page in the front of the book if you give it as a gift.) I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Handlebar.
