Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App Review

The most important part of our homeschool is Bible study.  As a Christian, it is a must that our children know and have a personal relationship with the Lord.  Although, all of my children have learned to read the KJV of the Bible my youngest son and my niece still enjoy bible stories with fun colorful pictures.   Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals provided us with just that and more with their Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App.  They have brought bible bed time stories to life with their augmented reality in our home.  We were thrilled to be able to review this and share it with you all.

What is Planet 316 Story and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App?

Planet 316 Story Bible is a children's story bible with over 100 bible stories from the old and new testaments.  It is written in a kid-friendly format, but still biblically accurate.  The thing that set it apart from other story bibles is its free downloadable app with augmented reality bringing the Bible characters into action.

What do you get?

We received the story bible and then downloaded the free app on our iPhones.

How we used it?

I knew the Planet 316 Story Bible would take bedtime stories to a new level of fun.  My son decided he wanted to start from the beginning and just read a story every night, so that is what we did.   In the daytime, we would read the corresponding scripture to the story we were going to read that night and then read the story from our story bible at night.  We were able to compare the stories for accuracy and have some great discussions.   After we finished the story we would bring out the phone so that we could bring the story to life.  When my husband read he would allow my son to use the app as he read.

My son's thoughts

I asked my son how is he liking the Planet 316 Story Bible.  He said, "I like it.  It is fun.  It's cool how you are able to scan the people with the phone and they come off the pages and make noises.  A funny part is when Delilah says, "Hello Samson" and he says, "Hello there Delilah"  That's one of my favorite parts!"

My thoughts

Our family enjoys reading the Planet 316 Story Bible.  It is recommended for children ages 4-7 however my son is 9 and he is really enjoying it. My older kids even listen in from time to time and say things like, "that's cool" and "wow, how did they do that?"   The illustrations are remarkable!  They were very colorful, cartoon-like, and lively.   I believe this would be perfect for a child that is reading as well as one who is not quite there yet.  It's great for storytime!  The app was super simple to use you just open the app and hold it over the page and TADA the characters on the page have now jumped off and are talking. It's really cool!

It could be a little difficult to hold the book open and hold your mobile device over it so I would suggest letting your little one hold the book as you hold your device or vice versa.  We didn't have an issue here but I can see how some may.
The app can be downloaded on your mobile device through your google play store or Apple App Store.

Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals did a phenomenal job with the development of this wonderful interactive Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App.
