NKJV: Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible

Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible (Thomas Nelson 2016)
To keep on my track of reading and reviewing Bible versions and styles for a range of ages, I really loved the look, feel, and layout of the NJKV: Airship Genesis Kids Study Bible.

This is a perfect Bible for that young man, particularly ages 9 to 13.
The inserts provide valuable insights for the child and in an easy to understand syntax. References, maps, and thought provoking questions are also included.

Highly recommended for that preteen.
