Kids' Quest Study Bible from Zonderkidz | Children's Bible Review

New International Reader's Version (NIrV)
Children's Bible (ages 6-10)

How come people lived so long back then?
Why did God allow the flood?
Is Jesus real?

The NIrV Kids' Quest Study Bible is a great resource for kids eager to learn more.

  • Over 500 real questions form kids like you, along with real answers
  • Quest challenges help you apply the Bible's teachings to your own life by pointing to Scripture
  • Book introductions help explain what each book of the Bible is about 
  • A dictionary and subject guide help you find what you're looking for
  • Colorful design with cartoons makes the Bible fun to look at and use
  • The complete New International Reader's Version translation--the NIV for kids! The NIrV is written at a third-grade reading level, so it is easy to understand.

My Thoughts

Kids and questions just seem to go hand in hand. Being curious and asking questions is a natural part of learning. It's a good thing and one that we all want to encourage in our kids. But what do you do with all of those questions?

One way to handle them is to just answer the question outright. Another way is to show our children how to find the answers for themselves. I personally like the second option. Teaching children how to research an answer gives them lifelong skills that will give them sound discernment especially if they are researching from a trusted resource.

I believe that trusted source for answers is the Bible. The new Kids' Quest Study Bible is great for those curious minded kiddos. Throughout the book there are real questions from kids with follow-up commentary and Scripture references that allow the child to read and research for themselves the correct answer.

This Bible uses the NIrV translation which is targeted at a third-grade reading level. I like this because it allows younger children that have yet to acquire advanced reading skills to understand what they are reading. This particular translation is also great for those who use English as their second language.

If you are looking for a Bible for one of your children you certainly can't go wrong with this particular edition.
