The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV has a (full color) printed hard cover which you see in the cover image.

The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV is the New International Reader's Version (NIrV) version of the Bible (© 1995, 1996, 1998, 2014). The NIrV is a simplified version of the NIV, written at approximately a 3rd grade reading level. The NIrV is composed of smaller, easy-to-understand words in shorter sentences than the traditional NIV.

The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV has all black text (including the words of Christ), and is laid out in two columns. The text is a little larger than standard size (but I wouldn't consider it "large print"), making this easier to read for young ones. There are no footnotes. There is a full-color presentation page insert with a place on the back of the page for the child to record the occasion in their own way.

There is a brief (1/2 page) introduction for each book of the Bible. Each introduction covers a few basic ideas about the book as well as an outline of the book's contents.

As you might expect, you will see the typical Beginner's Bible style art throughout The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV. There are 9 full-color inserts depicting the following stories:
- Creation
- Noah and the Animals
- God's Promise to Abraham
- Moses Parts the Red Sea
- Joshua and the Battle of Jericho
- Samuel Hears God Calling
- Elijah is Taken Up to Heaven
- David the Shepherd Boy
- Jonah and the Big Fish
- Baby Jesus Is Born
- Jesus as a Boy in the Temple
- Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand
- Jesus and the Children
- Jesus Enters Jerusalem
- Jesus Dies on the Cross
- Jesus Has Risen
- Peter Heals the Lame Beggar
- Jesus Is Coming Back

At the back of The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV, you will find a 12 page "Dictionary" and a checklist of "150 Famous Bible Stories".

I'd say The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV is probably best for young kids - starting as early as age 5 or 6 (if they are reading) and up to age 8 or so. The only reason I might not suggest it for older children is the styling may look a bit young.

All in all, I think The Beginner's Bible Holy Bible, NIrV is a nice choice for a Bible for a young reader in your life.

I bet some of you are wondering why I am review this Bible again, however it is new and improved pictures. the pictures included are very colorful and catches your attention very quickly. As you can see in the features listed above this is a great first Bible for your child. The NIrV is written perfectly for children to understand. I also think your child will love the pages of colorful pictures as well as the fun introductions to each book of the Bible. There is also a very cool Dictionary of key words located in this Bible so my 9 year old daughter likes to go look through those! (Posted on 11/26/2016)

I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for an honest review.
I asked my youngest daughter if she would be interested in having her own real Bible, and she enthusiastically said yes. And here we are. Before I could even flip through it, she had taken it to her room, and apparently wrote in the presentation page. She wrote....I received this book for: (her words now) "reading and learning about Jeuses".
The words are very easy for her to read and understand. The type is large, and the pictures are colorful and whimsical. Overall, these three things make for a Bible she can call her own and that she can enjoy. (Posted on 10/20/2016)
