Book review of the Big Dreams, Big Prayers NIV Bible for Kids (Zondervan) by papertapepins

An all-new Bible designed for kids 9-12 focusing on prayer

I was pleasantly surprised by this Bible. The hard cover is durable and has a nice, sturdy feel to it, with a modern color scheme and layout. I'd say this Bible's target age range is about 8 - 12, and it's unisex in its appeal, which is nice. Every book has a cover page answering questions such as who wrote the book, why was it written, what do we learn about God in this book, the key characters and more as well as listing key stories from the book. I really like that last feature of listing the key stories from the book. It's a great launching point to get kids reading. All throughout both the Old and New Testaments verses about prayer are highlighted in blue. The book titles, chapter numbers and section headings are a very nice blue-teal color.

Interspersed throughout the Bible are devotionals called "Big Dreams" and every so often there is a full color page on the 10 Commandments, what prayer is, how to use this Bible and others. This Bible is just so user friendly and wonderful for younger kids or new christians but not 'childish' in design.

I am always impressed with the quality and thought put into Zondervan Bibles and this one impressed me again. I would not hesitate to recommend this Bible or gift it to any tween I know.

I received this Bible from Zondervan and BookLook for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own.
