Tyndale sent me the Hands on Bible to review. It is a complete bible with descriptions in the margins that help young readers understand more of the time frame and some customs in Bible times. Many of the side margins give ideas for sharing Jesus with friends and family, in ways that young people can do. It also has about 8 activities for young people and a friend to do. Best for 8-13 year olds.
There are Introductions to each Book with cool facts and info from that book. Hands on Experiences with ideas of things to do. Bible Bios with info about people in the bible, written as if it were straight from them. And Hands-On Bible activities (see the give away at bottom for more information).
This Bible is great when you are looking for extra ways to help explain points to kids, but I think it would be distracting for regular use. I particularly liked the information in the side bars!
Two possible ways you can get this free!!
