The Under the Sea Holy Bible, NIrV is a perfect gift for children ages 6 to 10. Themes of underwater fun and sparkling fish grace the interior of this wonderful children’s Bible. The outside is covered in foil and sparkle. The interior has color inserts featuring whimsical underwater scenes with themes of God’s care and love for each of us and all of creation.

My Thoughts:

This is a very eye catching cover.  It reminds me of The Disney cartoon movie Finding Nemo.  I do think the bright colors and cartoons would appeal to children as this is designed for ages 6 to 10. It comes in hardback which means it will also be very durable which is usually a plus for this age range.  
As you open the book the first page is a colorful presentation page and on the flip side a colorful bookshelf with the books of both the old and new testament.  Each book is written on the spine of the book and categorized by what each section teaches.  For instance, the first five books of the old testament are listed under law whereas the next 12 books are listed under history.  
There is a table of contents, an alphabetical order listing for the books of the bible, and a brief introduction about the New International Reader's Version.  
There are three colorful inserts.  
The first is designed to explain what prayer is and how to go about praying. On the back is the Lord's prayer and explains that Jesus taught us to pray by example. 
The second colorful insert is the ten commandments for kids.  It is written in easy to understand language that's appropriate for children. On the back is Love Passages for kids which is based on 1 Corinthians 13 with again easy to understand language. 
The third colorful insert talks about famous children in the bible and what books you can find their stories in.  On the back is listed the ABCs of Becoming A Christian.  
At the end of the bible you will find a dictionary to the New International Reader's Version. 
Lastly there's a list of great bible stories with what books each story is located. 

If you have a young child who enjoys the ocean and  sea life then this would be a perfect gift.  All throughout the bible it's self is easy to read and understand for a child. I think the biggest plus is that it's so easy to understand.  Many children can read, but can they comprehend what they are reading.   It appears to be written like a story which will pull a child's interest in.  The pages are thin, but then again all bible pages are thin.  The size would fit easily into a child's hand for reading or carrying around.  
I do think this would be a perfect gift for a child.  Yes, the younger (age 6) might need assistance in exactly how to use it at first, but it would still be a great gift.
