Checking Out the New VeggieTales Bible NLRV

In the VeggieTales Bible, Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, and all their VeggieTales friends invite children to join them and get to know the Bible. In this full-text New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) Bible, each feature is specially designed to help children understand and love God’s Word.



Features include:
  • Eight full-color, best-loved Bible stories as told in the VeggieTales videos, including Dave and the Giant Pickle; Rack, Shack, and Benny; and Esther, the Girl Who Became Queen.
  • Book introductions that give important information about each book of the Bible.
  • “Veggie Values” that teach lessons from the Bible, like God made you special, God loves you very much, don’t be afraid, be kind to others, forgive one another, and many more.
  • “Remember This”, highlighting key verses of Scripture to remember.
  • A dictionary to help kids better understand key Bible words and concepts.
  • The complete text of the New International Reader's Version (NIrV), written at a third-grade level and specifically designed to help early readers discover the Bible for themselves—the perfect steppingstone to the NIV.
Our Thoughts:
It's VeggieTales so what's not to love.  I love VeggieTales and was looking forward to sharing this Bible with our children's Sunday School class.  It was a hit!  The kids enjoyed the familiar characters, the vibrantly-colored pages and simple messages.  It's not the entire Bible. The VeggieTales Bible is a collection of 8 stories but it's perfect for new readers and the stories are familiar stories written in the NIrV translation which is quickly becoming one of my favorite Bible translations for kids.  NIRV translation coupled with the features of the VeggieTales Bible are sure to encourage kids to better understand complicated Bible concepts.

Overall, a great read.
