My Verdict:

My husband is starting a church plant, and I was looking for a good Bible for our children’s ministry. This Bible fit the bill perfectly! It’s really pretty, with enough pictures and other visual elements to be appealing to kids, but not so many that it feels juvenile. It’s targeted to children ages 8-12, and my 8- and 10-year-olds were really impressed with it. I enjoyed looking through it too! Highly recommended.

If you’d like to check out the NIV Kids’ Visual Study Bible, the hardcover version is currently on sale for $22.43. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.
