4-Star Review of "Under the Sea Holy Bible" and Giveaway!
Review of Under the Sea Holy Bible and a Giveaway!
New International Reader's Version
The Under the Sea Holy Bible, NIrV is a perfect gift for children ages 6 to 10. Themes of underwater fun and sparkling fish grace the interior of this wonderful children’s Bible. The outside is covered in foil and sparkle. The interior has color inserts featuring whimsical underwater scenes with themes of God’s care and love for each of us and all of creation.
My Review: The cover of the Under the Sea Holy Bible, NIrV, reminds me of the movie, Finding Nemo. I took it to church to a Bible study and showed it to several children and they said the same thing. They really liked it too. This is a new translation for me and it was very easy to understand. It will be wonderful for 6-10 year old children. There are several beautiful insert pages which are all in color and featuring the theme of "Under the Sea": Books of the Bible, Prayer Is......, The Lord's Prayer, Ten Commandments for Kids, Love Passage for Kids, Famous Children of the Bible, and the ABCs of Becoming a Christian. These insert pages all use lovely thinking maps and illustrations with easy-to-understand words for children. In the back of the book, there is a dictionary, and listing of Great Bible Stories. The only thing I would change is that the font is very small, and some children have visual problems and this could create difficulty in reading it. The cover is hard and will make this a sturdy Bible to carry to church or camps. I know that my own daughters would have loved this and the children at church all gave it a "thumbs up".
I rate this Bible 4 stars and would love to buy it as a gift for young children and would highly recommend it to others.
I received a copy of this Bible from flybypromotions in exchange for my honest review.
