Last year we reviewed Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals Daily Bible Jigsaw app and we loved it! You can read that review here: Daily Bible Jigsaw. This year we were asked to review the Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App. They are amazing!
I chose this review because I thought it was something that Jack and Laycie would love. We love reading Bible stories together and I’m always looking for new books that share God’s love with them. The cover of the Planet 316 Story Bible is adorable.
The cover features different Bible characters from the stories shared throughout this beautifully designed Bible for children. The back of the Bible shows you how to bring the Bible to life with images that explain how to use the app along with the Bible.
The Planet 316 Story Bible begins with a dedication page like most Bibles. It contains more than 100 beautifully designed Bible stories inside it’s semi-glossy pages. In the front, you will find a note to parents and another page sharing about the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App. There is a full Table of Contents so you can easily locate any Bible story favorite you and your child may have. Then begins the Old Testament with a brightly colored image sharing several stories from this section of the Bible.
Creation, Noah’s Ark, the story of Moses are all included in the Old Testament. The imagery is gorgeous and the characters are adorable. This Bible is designed for you children to truly enjoy.
The New Testament follows with the story of Jesus’ Birth, the miracles he performed, and his Resurrection. All the favorite stories you could wish to share with your little ones. In the back of the Bible, there is a People, Places, and Things in the Bible reference for you and your child that is helpful to find things you may be looking for within the stories. This is a great asset for when you can’t recall the name of the story but know what it contains.
The companion Planet 316 Story Bible App is available for Apple products and for Google as well. It opens to an instructions page that shows you how to use the app. It’s really quite simple to use. You turn on the app, scan the image from the Bible with your device and the pages just come to life. Each page pops up with a 3D image from the page that shows action and movement as you view it. This augmented reality makes reading the Bible fun and exciting for children.
We really LOVE our Planet 316 Story Bible and have already recommended it to many others. The stories are fun to read. Jack loves reading this Bible nightly now.
The Planet 316 Story Bible from Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals is available for $18.99 US. The Planet 316 Story Bible App is a free download that works along with the Planet 316 Story Bible. This would make a great addition to any children’s library.
