I love Children’s Bibles. The often have fun and colorful features, and I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of enjoying things like that! I recently received Precious Moments Precious Prayers Bible. Precious Moments are an adorable set of illustrated characters that have been charming children (and adults) for decades.
I was excited to receive this Bible for several reasons. First of all, Precious Moments characters are just adorable, and secondly, it is a NKJV. I’m not a big fan of the children’s Bible versions, and since my oldest is almost 9, she’s ready for a more advanced version.
This Bible has a bunch of full color inserts (sets of 4 pages) that include a poem, several illustrations, a familiar Bible passage, and a prayer. The illustrations are obviously very sweet, and the page inserts are cute.
Each book of the Bible gets it’s own short introduction discussing the book’s author, timeline, key verse, and theme. It gives some good background information. There are also a couple of maps in the back as well as some resource lists.
The downside to this Bible is that, while cute, the page inserts are the only features of the Bible. I would love to see some key words, or small illustrations, or little tidbits strewn throughout the pages. I would also like to see the words of Jesus in red.
Overall, I thought this was a very cute Bible, and I know my daughter will love it, but I wish the features were more spread out throughout the Bible instead of all within the feature pages.
