Review of NIV Kids’ Visual Study Bible

NIV Kids’ Visual Study Bible

The NIV Kids’ Visual Study Bible, for ages 8–12, brings the Bible to life in four-color illustrated splendor. This study Bible includes a spectacular full-color interior featuring over 700 illustrations, photos, infographics, and maps on every page that visually represent key Bible information. Each page also features important facts located near the relevant verse. Intriguing facts; colorful, engaging maps; photographs; and illustrations make this a Bible they’ll want to explore.


  • Over 700 four-color photographs, illustrations, infographics, and maps throughout
  • Full-color design
  • Book introductions, including important facts and an image to orient the reader
  • One-column format with side bar study notes for ease of reading
  • Presentation page
  • The complete text of the New International Version (NIV) translation of the Bible
  • Beautiful cover featuring gloss

I’d grown up with King James Version and NIV Bibles. The only bits of pictures inside were those in the glossary at the end. I had always wanted more, like a map to show me where things were happening. Or maybe an illustration of something, like the Ark of the Covenant. Kids are often very visual, so finding a Bible that contains maps, images of artifacts and more is great.

I have a kid’s Bible study in my home every other week or so and had the opportunity to use this Bible. It was helpful in showing the maps of the area. There’s a map tracing Jesus’ ministry, a map of Paul’s ministry, a map of the Israelites with Moses and on and on. Sections that have lists of events that happened are given special treatment with bar graphs, infographs or tables. The ten plagues of Egypt can be read in the verses, but there’s a page with illustrations of those same plagues along with the related Bible verses. A bar chart displays the various ages of Old Testament ancestors and the years they lived. It’s nice to have as it gives a quick snapshot of each and their age for comparison. One feature that I especially enjoyed throughout was the title page for each book that listed information specific to that particular book. It really is a great resource. Besides that, the Bible is hardcover bound and has an attractive cover. Overall, I think kids will be able to get a lot out of this Bible. I think even teens and young adults may appreciate the content within.

Overall, the NIV Kids’ Visual Study Bible  is a nice study Bible to have, for kids and adults.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255  : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Messianic prophecies regarding Jesus are summarized on one page and include the verses.

Ten Plagues of Egypt summarized with illustrations and verses noted.

Each book of the Bible has a title or summary page that notes specific interesting facts about that book.

Maps help kids visualize the areas

Pages within the Bible have side columns full of insight and information.
