I bought this for my nephew who is 12. He was very unhappy to get a kids bible. So I took it back and he got nothing! However I decided to use this as our weekly bible study book for kids. So my daughter (11), nephew (12) and niece (10) all use this book to study and read from while the adults use the bible. It is GREAT! It gives the kids stories they can relate to and understand. It also gives a scripture reference for each story/topic. I highly recommend!
