 What features do you look for in a Bible for your child? What is most important to you?



  1. Jeff Dunham says

    I look for a Bible at an appropriate reading level for my children. I also look for things like colorful pictures and a “fun” overall look, but the reading level’s the first thing I check.

  2. I have been looking for a good study Bible for my son who is is turning 10 next month. I will check this one out!

  3. I look for a reliable translation and one that stays as true to the original story as possible, without going over the child’s head.

  4. I look for one that ultimately points to Christ. I don’t just want a storybook that gives cute versions of biblical stories without any reason behind them. I prefer something that shows God’s glory and points to the cross.

  5. I look for how the Bible stories relate to life.

  6. Reading level and the ability of my kid to understand what’s going on is important. If it’s a children’s Bible, it should accurately reflect what’s in the actual text of the Bible. I’ll admit that when my kid was younger, we opted for stories that would communicate the concepts well and that worked well. Now, we often read from the NLT translation and discuss concepts.
    Comments/study notes/application that can relate well to a child’s life are helpful. The layout of the text can help as well. If it’s really readable, but is just page after page of black on white text, it’s not going to go over well with my kid.

  7. I try to stay age-appropriate and make sure that it encourages the child on their own level.

  8. I like the idea of testing your Bible skills and thought provoking questions for application.

  9. I want a Bible for my son that has a look and feel that is comparable to other books in his collection.
    I look for Bibles that stay away from blond-hair-blue-eyed Jesus.
    As he grows older, I want him to have a Bible that is easy to navigate and uses language that’s relevant to his life.

  10. Brenda Smith says

    I look for engaging content; good illustrations; clear writing that is age-appropriate with being dumbed-down.

  11. I really like Kids Bibles that offer short stories with nice illustrations. Something easy-to-understand for kids!

  12. I could really use a Bible for my 11 year old son that we are adopting. He told me Sunday that he wanted a Bible.
    I look for a Bible that’s age-appropriate, fun and engaging, has relevant and appropriate commentary and questions. I like there to be some questions that get them thinking about how this applies to their lives so that they can see God’s word as relevant to them.
