Celebrate International Literacy Day with These Best Bibles for Kids!

“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.” – Kofi Annan

These powerful words from former United Nations Security-General Kofi Annan still ring true today, as many countries celebrate International Literacy Day amid the jaw-dropping reality that nearly 773 million people still do not possess basic literacy skills. 773 million kids and adults. The need is great, yet we have a great God to meet that need because he loves literacy. He created it (Romans 11:36).

If the world needs to continue to cultivate these essential skills for daily life, especially among our kids, how much more so for eternal life through reading and comprehending God’s Holy Word? Here are some amazing Bibles to help your kids grow not only as readers but also as disciples!
