If I was a young girl, I would jump at the chance to get my hands on a copy of this Bible. I mean, what young girl doesn't like pink and glitter?? In looking online, it unfortunately doesn't appear to come in a design that would appeal to boys. I don't understand this considering the material inside didn't appear to be geared toward either gender. Hopefully they will create another cover that boys would like, because I really consider this a great Bible for kids. One thing that I think is really helpful for this Bible is that the majority of the study materials appear at the front instead of in the middle of the Bible. While I myself prefer when there are notes and materials sprinkled throughout, what I've noticed is that kids have a hard enough time simply finding the passages they are looking for and it can be pretty overwhelming. I really like how the notes really drill down to the basics and help the kids get a better understanding of God's Word before they "get to the good stuff." It also includes several reading plan options to get kids started on reading through the Bible (and/or studying specific topics). I especially love how the materials are laid out in the beginning. What the Bible is is introduced, along with how it came to be. Then it shares practical ways for kids to build Christian character and different ways they can study the Bible. I really like how it explains the Bible "in a nutshell" for kids, so that they can get a little background to better understand what they're reading. The Bible can be pretty intimidating for kids (and even adults), because of it's size and how difficult parts of it can be to understand, so anything that can simplify and explain it for them can be helpful. Throughout the Bible there are a few places that the reader can come across some maps and a few shorts diagrams and/or explanations of the section they are in. These materials are very easy to find because they are made out of a thicker and glossier paper. Other than that the Bible is organized very simply with a basic two-column design with the words of Jesus in red. I believe it's up to personal opinion if people prefer a lot of material throughout the Bible and/or in the front and back. Coming from someone who did a lot of "Sword Drills" as a kid though, the simpler middle--the better. Another piece I really like is that the concordance at the end is also a dictionary. It both explains the words and shares where to find them in the Bible. It also shares how to pronounce some of the more difficult words. I went through and read a lot of the descriptions and found them both basic enough for kids to understand, and deep enough for kids to study. The only thing I wasn't really a fan of was the section that separated "Biblical History" and "Secular History." I am not a fan when people separate the two considering the fact that "history is history." Overall I really like the layout of this Bible and find the study materials very helpful and informative for younger readers.

“Take a look inside to see how you can learn and grow in the light of God’s love for you!” the back jacket states of Tommy Nelson’s NKJV Early Readers Bible. ~ What ~ With eleven-hundred-and-eighty-four pages, this hardbound book with sparkles on its pink front and bound side targets children seven to ten years old. Using the New King James Version of the Holy Bible, it has more than one-hundred-and-eighty pages of full-color helps with an eight-page colorful illustrated Bible timeline. After ownership, salvation, decision, and baptism record pages, there are also lists to fill out of favorite Bible verses and church events and achievements at the beginning. The book includes information about the Bible, daily reading schedules, memorization tracks, and prayer guidance. Sporadically spread throughout are six “Good to Explore” sections that are detailed, illustrated, and often including maps or diagrams. An illustrated word list is also added to the ending. ~ Why ~ Since the Bible is the most important book in history, this is a lovely way for a young person to be in the Word. I like how the colorful drawings are detailed, easy to look at as they explain or enhance a topic. The eight-page timeline is interesting and engaging. The written word has no interruptions of columns, references, or explanations, so it is kept simple. ~ Why Not ~ Some may not like that the Scripture parts are on thin paper that bleeds through and the font is small, so it may be hard for some to read. I think that due to the book’s pink jacket color, boys may prefer something less feminine in design. ~ Wish ~ While I appreciate the added content to this children’s Bible, I wish the Word font was not smaller than the thicker inserted pages as they may take away from the importance of God’s Scripture. ~ Want ~ If you are looking for a Bible for a young one who likes to read or is interested in knowing more about the Word’s contents, this may be a good selection for one who likes a sparkly pink cover. Thanks to Book Look Bloggers for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
