With spring in full bloom, what better way to get young readers excited about the season than with a new Bible that helps them cultivate the fruit of the Spirit?

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT BIBLE (Zonderkidz; $24.99 each; February 2013)
teaches children that while some fruit grows on trees, the fruits of the Spirit, that grow within their hearts, are the most important of all.

The Bible, which is available in four Italian Duo-Tone designs (grape, watermelon, strawberry and brown), explains the significance of the fruits of the Spirit -such as love, joy, peace and kindness - and illuminates them in a way kids can understand and apply to their lives.

Twelve full-color pages demonstrate each kind of fruit and shares how, with God's help, readers can acquire each one.

Kids will also love that it comes in a handy compact size and includes the complete bestselling New International Version (NIV), which is easy to read and understand.
