I decided to get the Adventure Bible for Early Readers for Maria as she's just at the cusp of the age recommendation (6-10 years). I thought it would be something she'd enjoy with the bright coloured pages, little facts, memory verse suggestions, etc... but in an "easier to read" version than the KJV etc.. obviously. I think it's fine for kids older than 10 years as well to be honest, and probably better suited to slightly 'older' kids as I always use a story bible for them when they're younger as the content is far better suited to younger ages.
The cover is nice & strong, the pages are thicker than you'd find in an adult bible which is nice and they'll stand up to "not so delicate" page turning.
The NIrV is the "New Internation Revised Version", which is simplified, and slightly different than the NIV if you're used to that. For myself, I prefer the NEV or the NKJV, but I can understand buying easier to understand versions for children.
Overall a great version of the Bible for kids! :)
