There’s something so special about a new Bible. The crispness of the pages, the smell of new, and the way the cover hasn’t given way yet to wear and tear…it just beckons for someone to pick it up and make it their own. There’s a lot of great kid’s Bibles out there. Let me tell you what I love about this newest Bible, The Early Readers Bible, from Tommy Nelson.
- The front cover! You can see the colorful playfulness happening on the photo above, but what you can’t see is the cool hologram happening. It’s pretty rad looking. Bonus: it’s a hardcover which definitely helps resist the wear and tear that comes from little hands!
- The New King James translation. I usually shy away from NKJV only because it can be hard for little ones to understand with all the thee’s and thou’s. As the cover says, “the Bible just for me” is just that, just for kids! It speaks a language that can be understood by even the youngest of children.
- The maps! This Bible contains over 182 pages of full-color study helps like maps, charts, and diagrams. The timeline of Biblical history at the back is fabulous. It’s interesting to read with all the pictures, too!
- The illustrated dictionary. For those words that are just too hard to understand, there’s a dictionary right at the back for kids to look up words. It also contains names of people and places as well as Scripture references.
- Red letter edition. I also love Bibles that highlight Jesus’ words in red. It’s so helpful for kids who are just starting out reading the Bible.
- The print. It’s not too small like some Bibles can be. It’s also not too big. It’s just right.
