In this revised edition of The NIV Adventure Bible, kids 8-12 will discover the treasure of God's Word. Filled with great adventures and exciting features, The NIV Adventure Bible opens a fresh new encounter with Scripture for kids, especially at a time when they are trying to develop their own ideas and opinions independent of their parents. Designed to spark curiosity, look for these in-text features: ? 'Life in Bible Times' helps kids understand what it was like to live in Bible times. For visual stimulation, each box includes a color picture. ? 'People in Bible Times' helps readers to sort out Zechariah from Zephaniah, Jehoshaphat from Joash. ? 'Words to Treasure' highlights popular Bible 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 acting out a story or drawing a cartoon to reinforce the Bible lessons. ? Dictionary/concordance for those tricky words. In addition to these great features, check out the Book Introductions for basic facts about each book of the Bible (who wrote it, where it took place, and why it was written), and full-color pages throughout with more interesting information about the Bible and what it means to be a Christian. With all these great components, no wonder The NIV Adventure Bible is one of America's best-selling classics---2-million in print---now updated and improved for ages 8-12!

The Adventure Bible NIV and Adventure Bible for Early Readers NIrV are complete Bibles from Zonderkidz, with numerous educational features and illustrations for children. Both books offer the full text of the Bible (New International Version) along with teaching sidebars such as: “Words to Treasure”, “Did You Know?”, “Life in Bible Times”, “People in Bible Times”, and “Live It!”. A Subject Index, Dictionary/Concordance, and Maps offer added useful tools. The Adventure Bible NIV is suggested for 9-12 year olds. Indented thumb tabs and a “How to Use This Bible” introduction will help young readers get started on their exploration of God’s word. The Adventure Bible for Early Readers NIrV is the New International Reader’s Version with slight modifications in the reading level to accommodate the intended audience of 6-10 year olds. These handsome hardcover books are brightly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and graphics, and there are so many features to keep children engaged that either book is likely to be thoroughly perused and revisited. However, the pages are quite thin and will require careful handling by eager fingers. As with any full Bible, in the context of Scripture there is frank mention of drunkenness, nudity, and sex that parents may not expect to see in a children’s edition, particularly the NIrV.
