The Big Red Holy Bible is actually not so big, but it is red. Big Red is an International Children’s Bible (ICB) and art from Eikon Bible Art. It’s not what I would call 3-D art, but it is interesting and has drawn my 6 year old to ask for the stories on the pages, which is what it’s all about, right?
This is my first experience with the ICB. The introduction to the translation states that it was translated specifically for children and that its reading level is grade 3, which is unique for a full text Bible.
I wish that there had been more information about the art, as it is in the title and therefore, one of the main reasons that Hannah and I were interested in it. I wasn’t sure if it was actually going to be pop up books or images that would use 3-D glasses, but the art is interesting and ultimately 2-D.
As far as extra features, there is a dictionary, topical index, list of God’s promises, key memory verses, and a handful of maps.
If you have a younger reader, who doesn’t quite understand what they are reading, the Big Red might help them get a firmer grasp on reading scripture.
