The Bible App for Kids (App): introduces children to 41 of the “big” Bible stories, & helps them understand the overall story that the Bible is telling. Kid-friendly navigation helps them find and select whichever story they want, then reads it aloud to them in a friendly narrative style. Throughout each story, fun, interactive animations keep children engaged, and select stories even include games designed to help them learn, understand, and retain important Bible story concepts. Plus, paired with their companion website, Bible App for Kids offers free resources designed to complement the app, such as coloring pages, activity sheets, and video episodes.
