“Sparkling fish grace the exterior while inside whimsical underwater illustrations surround important Bible themes to help kids dive deep into God’s Word,” the back of the gift book states.
~ What ~
Targeted toward children six to ten years old who want their special “sea-themed” Bible that is different from anyone else, this hardbound has a dark blue cover with colorful, sparkly fish on the front. Using the New International Reader’s Version of the Holy Bible, it is 1,152 pages long.
Eight glossy “sea” pages are inserted systematically throughout the book that cover an ownership page, the books of the Bible, what is prayer, the Lord’s prayer, ten commandments, love passages, famous children of the Bible, and the ABCs of Christianity. The backgrounds of these pages have fish, seahorses, dolphins, whales, turtles, and eels to name a few.
~ Why ~
With the Bible being the most important book in history, this selection is a nice option for the young child who wants to read it daily, take it to church, or show to others. I like that its version has bold chapter numbers and topics.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not like that the print is small, and the paper is thin so that words can be seen through the pages. Others may not care for the Bible version with its translation or that the sea-theme does not directly correlate to Scripture although there are some stories included about it.
~ Who ~
Zondervan copyrights the Bible.
~ Wish ~
A fan of the King James Version, I wish other translations besides this one were offered.
~ Want ~
If a young child is into the ocean and its creatures, this may be a good choice of Bible for them to carry around, hoping they get in the habit of reading God’s Word daily.
