Book Review: Precious Prayers Bible

Precious Moments: Precious Prayers Bible is a New King James (NKJV) version of the Bible, and it enhances reading the Bible for younger ages.

Throughout this Bible, there forty-eight pages of full-color Precious Moments artwork, as well as scripture passages and children's prayers accompanying the illustrations.

According to the back cover copy, this Bible "features prayer pages with themes of thanks, prayers of praise, prayers for school, mealtime, bedtime, friends, family, faith, and so much more! This beautiful plush padded Bible will be a treasured keepsake in any child's library."
Each book of the Bible features a mini-introduction focusing on the following: Author, Time, Key Verse, and Theme. While the Precious Prayers Bible primarily consists of the Old and New Testaments in a 9.5 font size, there are additional sections to assist with reading and studying the Bible. These sections include the following: About the Bible, How to Start Reading the Bible, Getting to Know God, About the New King James Version, Ministry of Jesus, Miracles of Jesus, and maps of Abraham's Journey, Desert Wanderings, Jesus' Last Week in Jerusalem, and Palestine in Jesus' Life.

The Precious Prayers Bible is designed to encourage children to read their Bibles more often and have a deeper understanding of what is being read. This wonderful resource is geared towards young readers, particularly elementary school ages in second to fifth grades, yet any age group would benefit from reading this Bible.

Note: I received this book from Book Look Bloggers, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
