Definitely a "Boy" Bible

Short, sweet, easy-to-read snippets by the Zonderkidz team pepper the Kids' Devotional Bible.  It uses the New International Reader's Version (NIrV) translation, probably the most readable text I've ever seen on any reading level past the abridged that don't really contain the whole bible.  I think the devotions are long enough to convey some real information, but short enough to hold a young boy's attention span through the whole thing.

I thought it looked like a pretty great book, but I had no idea I'd be so excited about it and cherish it as much as I do when I chose it.  I love it!  I'm so glad I got it for Woodjie.  He is enjoying it as well. He has a lot of trouble understanding what he reads, so this is very helpful.

In theory, one goes through the devotions based on the day of the week.  Every Tuesday passage, I can tell you, features a picture of art supplies.  (We happen to go to art class every Tuesday so that's easy to remember.) Each book of the Bible has a brief introduction and it does contain a short dictionary also.

I'd recommend this Bible for those considering a Bible for a child who has just learned to read reasonably fluently.  The cover and illustrations do lend themselves more toward the "boy" market, however.
