Children that are fans of the popular Christian series Veggie Tales will be delighted with the Veggie Tales Bible by Zonderkidz in the New International Reader’s Version. I think delving into the Word of God with well known kid-friendly and appealing Christian characters in the religious world such as Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber is a fabulous idea!
Throughout this Bible, children will not only delve into the actual Word of God but also enjoy character eight full color comic strips of their favorite vegetables through Veggie Tales Stories. Each book of the Bible has a book introduction that breaks down what each specifically covers. There are over 200 Veggie Values that list a specific verse or attribute to apply to ones character. Remember this sections that help one to memorize scripture. And last but not least a dictionary to look up words that might not be understood. Each of these features are broken down and explained in a “Features to Know About section in the front of the Bible.
The Bible has blue text throughout. It’s not hard on the eyes. In the back of the Bible, there’s a generous section full of lined pages for notes. I like that kids can use this area however they chose! Since it’s blank, it’s very open ended. Perhaps ones will jot down favorite verses, how God spoke to them through scripture, and so forth.
I feel this Bible would be best suited for children age eight years old and up. In fact, the Bible is written at a third grade appropriate level. It’s a nice Bible to have till one hits the preteen years, in my opinion. Everything is simplified and likely easily understood. It’s good for a both boys and girls.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the BookLook blogger review program in exchange for an honest review.
