My Review:

I love this bible!! I received this bible at the same time I received the girl version; Faithgirlz NIV.  My son is not quite as old as my daughter and I probably would have a waited a few years before I got him this one but I am still loving it.  My son is 5 and is just beginning to read so he likes a bit more but I know he will love this more in a year or two.  He does use it all the time when looking up verses for Awana because it is the same version (NIV) that they use in the Awana clubs.  Not only is the version great but I love all the added tidbits. There are explanations of each book in the beginning that explain what that book is about.  There is also sections where they can relate themselves to the characters in the stories.  I really liked the sections that answer commonly asked questions too.  Another thing I really love is the look.  The cover is cool and stylish for a young man and the colors throughout the bible are super fun, which make it that much more fun to read!! Perfect for young guys, probably 6-11 yrs old.
