NIrV, The Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids, Hardcover, Full Color, Comfort Print: Over 750 Images by Zondervan

NIrV, The Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids, Hardcover, Full Color, Comfort Print: Over 750 Images

NIrV, The Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids is a brand-new kind of Bible that allows kids ages 4–8 to read the full Bible without chapter and verse numbers and footnotes—study aids that are helpful for adults but can be very distracting for kids. This Bible presents the story of God’s people in a single column format with an extremely readable font.

With nearly every turn of the page, children will encounter full-color illustrations and kid-friendly maps that illuminate the Bible story. For children who want to read on their own or with an adult nearby, this is the perfect first full-text Bible for kids who appreciate the power of story and of God’s Word.

Features of the NIrV, The Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids include: 

Bonus full-color double-sided poster
Over 750 full-color illustrations throughout
Full-color, child-friendly maps
Single-column text
Easy-to-read Comfort Print® font
The complete text of the New International Readers’ Version (NIrV) of the Bible, created at a third-grade reading level just for developing readers
Vibrant and engaging cover


Did you know that the New International Version of the Holy Bible is the most widely read English Bible? Wouldn't it be great to have a version just for kids? There is! The editors at Zondervan/Zonderkidz have developed The NIrV Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids. It targets young readers ages 4-8 and it's definitely a keeper! This special version has a beautiful hardback cover, captivating colorful illustrations, and an easy-to-read single-column text format. The absence of numbered verses and footnotes makes it feel like you're reading chapters in an illustrated storybook! Best of all, it's written with words that 3rd graders will understand but it's still true to God's Word!

Yes, it targets a third-grade reading level but I can see this as a valuable Christian resource for anyone who is learning to read or new Christians who are having a hard time understanding other Bibles. I especially loved that there is a colorful map and a Family Tree as added bonuses. My only negative thoughts are that the font is very small and the lack of verse numbers may make it hard to find specific verses if you're needing to answer a question or find a certain verse.

That being said, I do recommend The NIrV Illustrated Holy Bible for Kids! It's a great choice for families to read together and it's a wonderful way to encourage Bible reading to your children.

I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from Zondervan. There was no obligation for a positive review.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
