Bring the Bible to Life with Planet 316 Story Bible { A Review + Giveaway}

I received this book from WorthyKids/Ideals for free in exchange for an honest review. Post contains affiliate links. All thoughts are 100% my own.

I love books.

Like seriously, there is nothing I love more than a great book... both for myself and for my children. But for many kids these days, getting them to open a book can be quite the task! For so many kids, even at a very young age, it's all about the technology! I am constantly stunned at just how much even the smallest child can pick up when it comes to technology.

While there certainly is a time, a place and a limit, why not use this attraction to screens for something good!? Like not only encouraging reading, but bringing the stories to life and helping kids learn about subjects that matter... like the Bible. Today, I'm excited to share a new book that helps to do just that! Introducing Planet 316 Story Bible with Augmented Reality:

An innovative Bible storybook with a free augmented reality app that brings the characters and stories to life

This innovative Bible storybook features more than 100 favorite stories from the Old and New Testaments. From the story of Creation and the Garden of Eden all the way through the life of Jesus and the acts of the Apostles, the stories are told in kid-friendly, yet biblically accurate, language and accompanied by bright and whimsical artwork. The book is paired with a free downloadable app that brings the stories to life through the use of augmented reality. By holding a smart phone or tablet over the page, the app allows characters, animals, and objects in the stories to spring up in 3-D, with audio that reveals additional character dialogue and sounds. Together, the book and its app are sure to engage children's imaginations and start them on their faith journey. Ages 4-7.

Now, I must say that my kids are big book fans too, but even still, given the choice, they'd go for a tablet every single time. I love that this book gives them the best of both. They can still get their reading time in, which as a mom is very important to me. But for them, it's the technology time that they WANT. It brings the Bible to life for them in a way that is fun and that speaks to their personal interests.

My kids are LOVING this book. Even without the app, they love the fun illustrations and stories--- short and sweet, perfect for bedtime. Add in the app an the fun multiplies. It's very easy for kids to use, and of course, its free so you don't have to buy anything special to make it work! It may be designed for kids from 4-7, but even my 10 year old enjoyed seeing the stories come to life!

If you're looking for a fun addition to the Easter basket or a great way to encourage kids to fall in love with the Bible, this is one that you will definitely want to check out. Planet 316 Story Bible is available to purchase now at your favorite Christian book retailers.
