I’ve reviewed several Bibles this past year, but this is my favorite one so far! The Wonders of Creation Holy Bible in the NIV is stunning and perfect for kids to learn to interact with the Scripture in a fun and creative way!
Here’s a list of what is included in this Bible:
- Over 50 pages of black-and-white illustrations ready to be colored
- Key verses called out on each coloring page
- The full text of the NIV translation
- Pink ribbon marker
- Lay-flat binding made for the perfect coloring experience
This Bible is filled with pictures of butterflies, monkeys, trees, flowers, seahorses, kangaroos and even a walrus (which is the cutest!) Although the cover has quite a bit of pink on it, I still think this Bible would be perfect for both girls and boys. I mean, what little boy wouldn’t love coloring this awesome picture of a lion?!
I’ve been Bible journaling for about two years and my girls are always wanting to color in their own Bibles, but I’ve always had to come up with ideas for them on my own – this Bible is filled with opportunities for my girls to imagine and create alongside Scripture! If you’re not familiar with Bible Journaling, it’s a movement of people who love to create, color, design, draw and write in the margins of their Bibles. The idea is that the more creative we can be, the more we will want to get into Scripture. It’s been a game changer for me. It’s a way for me to meditate on the Word in a way that allows me to use my hands in a creative way. I’ve always been a kinesthetic learner and the more I can use my hands, the more likely I am to pay attention and understand what I’m reading. It’s the reason hat I read with a highlighter in hand. I have a daughter who learns the same way and I believe this Bible would give her the opportunity to study the Word in a way that fits with her unique, God-given, wiring.
The Wonders of Creation Bible is the perfect size for small hands (it’s a bit over 5×8) and is hardcover so it will stand up to heavy use (which is exactly what you hope for in a Bible – that it will be heavily used).
I cannot recommend this Bible highly enough!
