Kids' Devotional Bible, NIrV {Children's Bible and Devotional All in One}

Encouraging children to development a daily habit of reading the Bible is a wonderful way to start their journey to a relationship with God. I especially like incorporating a devotional in the mix, because it also offers a little practical encouragement to live out our daily lives. The thing with many devotionals is that you have to sometimes reference back and forth to the Bible, especially if the scripture is not already included. Wouldn't it be great for children to have a devotional and Bible all combined into one? Well the good news is there is such a thing and it's called the Kids' Devotional Bible, NIrV.



ABOUT THE BIBLE:
Complete with a year’s worth of devotions, the Kids’ Devotional Bible, NIrV will help children develop a habit they’ll want to keep. Engaging weekday devotions, fun weekend activities, interesting illustrations, and a dictionary make this a Bible they’ll want to read and apply to their lives. It includes the complete New International Reader’s Version (NIrV)—the stepping stone to the NIV—making it easier for young readers to read and understand.


The Kids' Devotional Bible is an amazing resource for children since it contains a devotional built right into an actual New International Reader's Version Bible. There's over 300 devotions included throughout and two different variations for weekdays and weekends. While both devotionals are short and right to the point–perfect for kids, they both offer different things. 


The weekday devotions include:
  • A thought for the day that's age-appropriate for children
  • A scripture verse that connects the thought of the day
  • A daily Bible reference to look up that also connects the thought of the day.
  • An "Ask Yourself" section that offers several related questions to ponder
  • Suggestions for additional passages that can be read throughout other books in the Bible that also relate to that devotion.
  • A note on what page the next devotional starts (since the devotions are incorporated right into the Bible, they won't be on every single page).
  • A small box that children can check off to notate whether they've already read that devotion.


The weekend devotions include:
  • A thought for the weekend that's age-appropriate for children
  • A scripture verse that connects the thought of the weekend
  • Two daily Bible references to look up and read that also connect the topic's discussion (covering both Saturday and Sunday).
  • A "Some Things to Think About" section that offers several related questions to ponder
  • A "Some Things to Do" section that offer fun activities that children can do
  • A note on what page the next devotional starts
  • A small box that children can check off to notate whether they've already read that devotion.


Other features include:
  • A presentation page for gifting
  • A table of contents
  • A introduction to each book of the Bible
  • A dictionary that goes over some of the more difficult words that kids may not already know.
  • A "Subject Guide" that highlights the different devotion topics included.
  • A "Got It" section that offers a bit of trivia by telling a Bible story, and asking the reader to "Connect the Dots" by doing further research in other passages.



I really like the included Subject Guide, because it allows the reader to reference particular areas of interest to them. For example, if a child wants to read a devotion on grandparents, they can search the alphabetical guide to find what page it will be on and flip to a devotion that discusses showing love and respect for older people. 

The Kids' Devotional Bible is such a great Bible, because it has everything a kid needs to partake in daily devotions without having to flip back and forth between books. The devotion topics are practical and relate to situations that many children experience. Plus, the NIrV translation is really easy to follow along to. This makes it the ultimate study Bible for kids.

This sounds like an awesome resource for my son! I like that it tells you what page the next devotional is on. The subject guide sounds useful, and all the other things they have to help explain the Bible. They really put a lot of thought into making this devotional useful for kids. Thanks for the review.

You're very welcome, Brenda! I really like what they did with this Bible devotional. I definitely recommend giving it a try for your son's Bible Studying. :-)
