If you watch our YouTube Family Vlogs, then you know how much we are loving the NIrV Kids’ Devotional Bible from Zondervan. This Devotional Bible quickly became a favorite in our house and we always start the day with a reading.
What does this Bible have to offer?
This Bible offers a complete year’s worth of devotions that are prefect for helping children develop a habit they’ll want to keep. Through the week they have wonderful devotions that they can relate to, which encourages them to continue reading. Over the weekend, you’ll find those clumped together in one reading, but it also includes fun weekend activities and interesting illustrations.
The Kids’ Devotional Bible includes the complete New International Reader’s Version which is considered the stepping stone to the NIV-making it easier for young readers to read and understand. My kiddos were having a hard-time understand a lot of things we were reading in the Bible until we switched to using NIrV and now they not only look forward to family Bible time, but I often find my fourth-grader reading his Bible throughout the day. This simple act makes my heart so happy! What parent doesn’t want to see their child not only enjoying but understanding the Bible.
Features included are:
• Short weekday devotions that help young readers apply Bible lessons for a full year.
• 52 weekend devotions that teach kids about God’s creation through fun activities like visiting the zoo or gazing at the stars.
• “Got It” feature that encourages kids to find answers to Bible trivia themselves
• Book introductions that give helpful information about each book of the Bible
• Dictionary to look up words they want to know more about
All in all we are really enjoying this Bible. We have been using it daily as part of our Bible study and I love that my little guy picks it up often to read it on his own.
You can find this Bible at your local book retailer or online at Zondervan.com.
