By ZondervanYounger children can share in the love for God’s Word with The Adventure Bible for Young Readers! Designed specifically for children still learning to read, this Bible is perfect for those who are ready to explore the Bible on their own. It is filled with colorful illustrations and important facts and figures throughout to enhance a child’s personal Bible study. Based on the bestselling Adventure Bible, this Bible has the full text of the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV–“The NIV for Kids!”), which is easy for young children to read and understand. The Adventure Bible for Young Readers will instill a life-long habit of turning to God’s Word for guidance. Recommended for ages 6 to 10.

Features Include:

  • “Life in Bible Times” helps kids understand what it was like to live in Bible times. For visual appeeal, each box includes a color picture.
  • “People in Bible Times” helps readers to sort out Zechariah from Zacchaeus, Joseph from Joash.
  • “Words to Treasure” highlights popular verses for kids to memorize.
  • “Did You Know?” points out many of the interesting facts and figures found in the Bible.
  • “Let’s Live It!” suggests activities, such as playing games and drawing pictures to reinforce the Bible lessons.
  • A Dictionary/concordance helps with those tricky words.
  • Book Introductions give basic facts about each book of the Bible (who wrote it, where it took place, and why it was written).
  • Full-color pages throughout give more interesting information about the Bible and what it means to be a Christian.


This is a great Bible for early readers. It’s easy to understand and worded specifically for young readers. It’s a full color Bible and has all kinds of special features. It’s identical to the NIV Adventure Bible so you would have no problems transitioning from this Bible to the older version of the Bible.  It has all kinds of inserts for Bible study, memorization and you can use the Adventure Bible Devotional right along beside it in order to study with your kids and help train them how to get in the Word for themselves.

My favorite feature is the “Life in Bible Times” section where it explains what something was or how things were done in Bible times. It puts the Bible into perspective and makes it a bit more real for the kids.  It also has book introductions as well as fun images that kids like.

This is the hardcover version but it is also available in many other bindings.  Including Italian Duo-Tone in a several color choices.
