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

The Planet 316 Story Bible and app are an interactive and fun Bible/ app set.  This amazing combo literally lifts the characters of the Bible off the page and into the hearts and minds of our children.  With colorful illustrations and a story-like feel, this Bible will engage your child for hours.  The Bible is hardcover, durable and small enough for smaller hands.  It begins in Genesis with the story of creation and follows the regular Bible all the way through to Revelations.

While this is a great Bible for younger children, this is a story Bible and would not be good for Bible referencing.  It is great to get preschool and younger elementary school children excited about the Bible.  Your child may need help working the app, so you may want to recruit an older sibling to help.  I know that I did not have to do much coaxing to get my older kids to help their younger siblings.  The set is really pretty fun.

How Does The Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App Work?

This question is probably better answered via video.  You can watch our video below to see how this set works.

How Did We Use The Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App?

When I first saw this Bible set, I immediately thought of my fifteen year old daughter.  Now normally this would not interest a young woman in Middle School, but in her case, it is pretty perfect.  She has some set-backs and special needs in her life that have made it so that she is currently reading at a Kindergarten/ 1st Grade Level.

She has been desperately asking for a Bible like her brothers, but since she can’t read, it only interests her for a few minutes.  This Bible is fun, and she can even read some of the words, which has made her very happy.  She loves getting done reading a page so that we can bring out my phone and pop the characters off the page to see what they will say.

She reminds us that we need to bring her Bible with to church and to her Wednesday night youth group – even if she can’t use the app.  When we sit down to have a Bible study she loves to bring out her Bible and look at the pictures of the stories we are studying.  Her favorite story is Ruth, since this is her namesake.

She even brought it with for her recent major surgery.  It was a comfort and she really liked showing all the nurses her really cool Bible.

Our Thoughts

Ruth (age 15)

“I like my Bible, it’s good.”

Seth (age 12)

“This is a really cool Bible.  I like how you can use the app to make the characters pop off the screen and talk.”

Chris (mom)

“This Bible/ app combo is a really unique way to get kids interested in the Bible.  I really enjoy watching the kids have fun while learning about the stories of the Bible.”
