Planet 316 Story Bible REVIEW

Planet 316 Story Bible and Bible App
We love Planet 316! When given to opportunity to review another one of their products we, of course, said Yes!  The Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App by Planet 316 and Worthy Kids/Ideals was a no-brainer for us to choose.  Little Bug LOVES to have her daddy read her bible stories at bedtime EVERY night (except when he isn't home on time).  The fact that this one has a really fun interactive component had me intrigued.  I received the book and then downloaded the app for free.  You can download the app from the App Store or Google Play.  They do not currently have the app available for Kindle.

This special book has Augmented Reality that works with their FREE app to bring the Bible to life!  The app works on your smartphone or tablet.  The 3-D animation is fascinating for the kids to watch.  Even I got a kick out of it!  The book is high-quality hardback with heavy-duty glossy pages (304 pages).  There are more than 100 bible stories with wonderful illustrations that capture your child's interest.  Add in the interactive component with the app and your children are on their way to learning about the stories of the bible.  If your little one is like mine, who can just about recite any of the stories to you, don't worry about it being boring.  The interactive app that brings the pages to life captures their interest and further reinforces the stories in their minds.

You just open up the app, press start, and allow the camera to scan the page and voila!  You are ready to interact with the story.

The 3-D animation does not read the story to them but has audio that adds to the storybible and the experience.  You can HEAR the ocean and animals.  The characters talk and interact in addition to what is being read on the pages of the book. The 3-D component is fascinating. It is a little awkward with the iPad and I do think it's easier to use with the smaller iPhone.  The picture is, of course, better with the tablet, but hard to hold the book at correct angle and tablet at the same time (definitely takes more than two hands!).

Little Bug just giggled with delight the first time she saw it in action.  It was funny to see her try to figure out just how it was happening, but then she just had fun watching it in action.  She also still loves to read the book without the app.  The illustrations are fun and expressive.  I also like that when she starts to read this will be a good beginner book for her as the stories are short.  They don't read this book every night but it is definitely part of her bedtime routine several nights a week.  This will be a book that she will use for several years to come before she outgrows it.

The book includes bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments (from Genesis to Revelation).  Scripture references are included with each story.  There are no actual scriptures so no Bible version is given.  The book is listed for ages 4-7 but I would say all ages!  We have always read to even our young babies and certainly a 2-year-old would get a kick out of the interactive app.  My 14-year-old was even caught playing with it!!  LOL.  The book is currently discounted on their site for $14.99 (25% off).

I'm really glad we reviewed The Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App.  I highly recommend it if you have kids ages 4-7 or even younger or a little older!  You can connect with  Planet 316 and Worthy Kids/Ideals on FACEBOOK and TWITTER.  If you have the time, check out what we thought of their Daily Bible Jigsaw app.
