What if a child could read his or her own personal mail from God? The NIrV Love Letters from God Holy Bible will invite kids to do just that! The Love Letters from God Bible, with letters written by Glenys Nellist and illustrated by Sophie Allsopp, is a perfect way to introduce children to the Bible and God’s great love for them. This Bible includes 80 love letters inspired from God's words written especially for the reader, as well as the full text of the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV).
Each love letter also contains a very special Bible verse, entitled "God’s Wonderful Words to You" which are located on a illustrated tag under the letter. These are carefully chosen promises of God’s very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope, and are also highlighted in light blue in the text of the scripture. Beside each letter there is a "Write Back" prompts section with lines where the child is invited to write their own RSVP to God. In the back of the bible there is a brief dictionary and a list of Great Bible Stories with their main scripture referenced. There are also some blank pages to write notes and very nice colored maps as well to study located after those pages.

I had some dislikes that I thought could be made better. The pages (except for the ones with pictures), like most bibles, are a little delicate, so we encourage our children to turn the pages with care. The highlighted scripture verses were highlighted in light blue and were very hard to see that they had been highlighted at all. I was a little disappointed that these Love Letters From God were not lift-the-flap and more colorful like the ones in the Bible Stories series of books.
We usually work through the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible at our home Bible studies because we feel it to be the most correct translation, but I do love that the Love Letters from God Holy Bible is so easily readable for younger kids. My daughter Teela who is eight years old and in third grade was able to read it without difficulty. Teela especially loves reading this Bible to her younger sister, Zari, who is five because it is very easy to read and understand. I believe this has helped my younger children understand the words and what is happening better than a KJV Bible.
