The ESV Seek and Find Bible

Written for children ages 5 to 9, I was pleased as I flipped through this latest children’s Bible from Crossway Publishers. I like that it has five hundred vibrant and eye-catching illustrations and engaging short stories typical of bibles compiled for children alongside the text of the entire word of God (Children are never to young to be immersed and often are far more understanding and receptive than given credit for!). I appreciated the “character profiles” which each highlight a bible character and through numerical notations, coordinate it to the passage in which he or she is introduced. One particular addition that stood out to me was the “Seek and Find” Bible studies suggested. I thought it was wonderful way to encourage children to dive right in as they ask themselves the three key questions provided alongside a key Bible verse and related Bible readings to the particular story or passage being studied.

I have found the EVS (English Standard Version) to be easily read and comprehensive for the greater part. In addition, your young reader will find the simple dictionary located towards the back to be helpful in understanding terms and words. Several maps are also included.

This edition has a colorful hardback cover with an identical protective slipcover. The font in slightly enlarged to aid in readability. The pages, although thin, are not flimsy or easily torn. The colors are a fun and slightly eclectic blend of blue, orange, and green.
