Bible App Review

This post marks the beginning of a series of reviews I will be conducting on products, books, etc. that will help you harvest a memorable life for your family.

This week, I had the opportunity to review a new Bible App for kids called The Beginner's Bible App produced by Zondervan. This colorful, and free, App includes several Bible stories in an e-reader format. Accompanied by colorful, interactive graphical scenes, the text is highlighted as an audio version of the story plays. This is a great feature for early readers.

The App also includes coloring pages, a short video and a game. The coloring pages are based on a Bible story and the game features Eve and the apple tree. Both of these features help to develop fine motor skills and the game encourages hand-eye coordination.

Best of all, the Beginner's Bible App is based on sound Bible teaching and favorite Bible stories. You can also purchase additional story sets as they are developed for $1.99 each.

My three children were all very interested in the App and I was happy to let them play together before dinner. This entertaining and educational App, in my opinion, is a very good use of screen time!
