So the kid's NIV Visual Study Bible is like a textbook for the older child who is a serious student of the word in a Christian school. You will find the Old and New Testament contents of the Bible, along with an infographic index and maps in the back. The colorful illustrations are wonderful, too. I especially like the questions asked on the front page of each book of the Bible. For example, Who Wrote This Book? Why Was This Book Written? What Do We Learn About God In This book? Who Are The Key People In This Book? Where Did This Happen? What Are Some Of The Stories In This Book? Love using the ribbon marker and this fresh approach to studying God's word. It's a beautiful bible and perfect for gift-giving, as well as at home and church libraries. The downside for me, the font is too small and the book is too heavy to hold. Overall, a great learning experience in exploring people, places, and history of Bible times.

4/5 stars.

Review: Chicken Soup for the Grandma's Soul

About The Book

Whether you're a veteran grandma or a Nana-to-be, this collection of stories will warm your heart and make you laugh about the universal experiences of being a grandmother.

Chicken Soup For The Grandma's Soul


  1. The Birth Of A Grandma
  2. Generations Of Love
  3. Blessings
  4. Adventures With Grandma
  5. Through The Eyes Of The Child
  6. Grandma's Lessons 
  7. Gifts from Grandma
  8. Legacies And Heirlooms 


One of my favorite cartoon quotes is, "Grandma, you play like you want to have kids of your own someday." This is a great gifting-book for new grandmas and experienced ones. The collection of heart-warming stories honors and celebrates the ageless love of grandmothers. You'll laugh aloud because many of the stories are so delightful to read and you'll be able to relate to them. I especially like The Wooden Spoon story. Being a grandmother of 5, I found the book charming and inspirational.

5/5 stars. Recommend Chicken Soup For The Grandma's Soul.

Happy Reading!

My Review

One of my favorite quotes in the book by Oscar Wilde is, "I have many flowers." he said, "but the children are the most beautiful flowers of all." Pastor John R. Ramsey shares a touching short story you will not forget. Then there's Christmas Day in the Morning by Pearl S. Buck that will sure to make you cry! Les Brown wrote an amazing story on "What Goes around Comes around" that I thoroughly enjoyed knowing about. You'll laugh aloud after reading Jack Canfield's short snippet on "Discouraged?" One of my all time favorites is reflecting on the writing of Art Linkletter, encouraging so many by sharing his personal story, "If I Could Do It, You Can Too!"

5/5 stars! Recommend!
