My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, the NIV THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU HOLY BIBLE is a colorful hard cover Bible (also available in eBook) for children The design is sure to appeal to either boys or girls.
My daughter didn't like that it didn't have a ribbon (or two) to mark her place, no concordance, and no maps (things she deems important). She also complained about the tiny print which she found hard to read. She did like the highlighted verses listings, the prayers to promises sections, and some of the mini devotionals.

Have you ever used a magnifying glass? It makes everything bigger and easier to see, right? Detectives and scientists magnify things to understand them better. Well that’s just what this Bible does—it’s a magnifying glass to help children understand the Word of God better.
The Bible is a gift from God, but many of the things written in the Bible are hard for kids to understand. In fact, sometimes they’re downright mysterious to kids. Using kid-friendly language and a detective theme, the two color NIV Investigator’s Holy Bible explains the Bible text for kids ages 6–10. Two central mystery-solving characters invite children to investigate the Bible using the following features:
Evidence—Bible book introductions answer what kind of book it is, who wrote it, what happens, and the “best part”
Breakthrough—answers questions kids might ask, such as “Who were the Philistines?” and “What is The Spirit of God?”
Scene—includes descriptions highlighting geographical information pertinent to a verse
Witness—explains the meaning and history behind Biblical names
Detective—quizzes students on what they have learned
Case Closed—explores how the events of a particular book of the Bible relate to children as individuals
My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, The NIV THE INVESTIGATOR'S HOLY BIBLE is a colorful hard cover Bible (this one is not currently available in eBook) for children. The design is sure to appeal to either boys or girls.
My daughter didn't like that it didn't have a ribbon (or two) to mark her place and no maps (things she deems important). She liked that it had a concordance, and the larger print . She did like the breakthrough sections featuring highlighted verses to memorize, answers to questions, and other trivia information, the scene sections, the witness sections, and detective sections. She liked it better than the one above but like the other cover better.
