You all know that I am a fan of The Bible App for iOS devices, now I am super excited that YouVersion has released The Bible App for Kids! I have been waiting for an app like this and am happy to be sharing it here with all of you! My son and I tested it out recently and we both love it. It’s a great way to get the two of us together and talking about what is important to us.
The Bible App for Kids comes with 6 bible stories ranging from creation to resurrection with more to come soon. The story of creation and the first sin are preloaded with the app and the other four need to be downloaded.
Each “page” of the story is automatically narrated, then you can set the narrative aside and interact with the story by touching certain parts of the animated page.
Since this app is geared for younger eyes, there is lots to do on each page. Cute pictures are accompanied by fun sounds that bring the story to life.
To take engagement to another level, kids can find special items to collect and answer questions about the story. This helps parents to see how much of the story kids are taking in. I love that it is a great way to direct our conversation.
It is a known fact that kids learn by repetition and with the app, kids are rewarded with special badges the more they read each bible story. Once they collect enough items, they unlock another bible story that pertains to the items collected. Fun!
The best part
As if engaging your kids in bible stories in a fun new way wasn’t good enough, the best part about The Bible App for Kids is that it is freeeeee! Now go get it!
What I love most about The Bible App for Kids is seeing my son connect the dots and see that he is understanding some of the most important foundations of the Bible – obedience, giving and love.
