I am actually going to give this Bible to my son for Easter! He just turned 5 in January, so it will be his first real complete Bible. I know he is a little young, but we will read it together to start. He is pretty advanced for his age--already reading by himself in preschool. I know he will really like some of the special features of the Bible. His favorite will probably be the Grossology feature, which is perfect for young boys. It highlights some interesting and disgusting tidbits of information about the stories and history in the Bible. I really like the other features included as well. The highlighted verses and "Make It Real" additions are probably my favorite, but everything that I read seems relevant and interesting. I am looking forward to Easter and study The Word with my son using this great Bible!
I did receive a free copy of this Bible in exchange for my honest review.
