Using the accurate, readable, and clear New International Version (NIV) text makes the Bible accessible and easy-to-read for kids. The NIV is the result of over 50 years of work by the Committee on Bible Translation, who oversee the efforts of many contributing scholars. Representing the spectrum of evangelicalism, the translators, from a wide range of denominations in various countries and continually review new research to ensure the NIV remains at the forefront of accessibility, relevance, and authority. Every NIV Bible that is purchased helps Biblica translate and give Bibles to people in need around the world.
I own a few coloring Bibles, and I love them. Those are the NLT translation, so I was interested in checking out one in a different translation, in this case, the NIV Bible.
The Bible definitely catches your eye with its bright pink color with silver polka dots. It will likely delight many girls, of varying ages. There are numerous coloring pages. Some contain images, while others are just words. They are easy to read and would appeal to young girls. However, I am no longer a young girl, and I enjoyed them, too 😊 If a page does not contain an image to color, there are lines for journaling or note taking. The target age is 8 and up, and I’m sure many adults would enjoy using this, perhaps alongside the young children in their lives.
As is standard for a Bible, this one is somewhat heavy, and it comes in at over 1,400 pages. When I looked at it, I propped it on my desk, as it is a bit awkward for me to hold. I use colored pencils for my other journaling/coloring Bibles, and they’d work well in this one, as well. The pages are a decent thickness, but there could be some bleed through if using markers or gel pens.
This would make a lovely gift for girls of any age.
