Planet 316 Story Bible

Featured

Planet 316 Story Bible with Augmented Reality. Nashville, TN: WorthyKids/ Ideals Publishing. 2018.

SUMMARY:
Alongside more than 100 Bible stories accompanied by colorful illustrations, the Planet 316 Story Bible adds another exciting element-Augmented Reality. Downloading the free app allows the readers to move their devices over the pictures causing them to spring up in 3D. Audio and movement add context, depth and interaction to the characters encouraging a more meaningful and lively experience. The stories are written in child-friendly language, include the related Bible verses, and make the Bible very approachable for young readers.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
A team of talented writers, artists and developers, Planet 316 uses current technology to bring the Bible to life, engaging and immersing readers in Bible stories. With easy to use technology (even for adults-LOL), I was enthralled with the characters seeming to pop off the pages, complete with voices and noises. Meeting the current young generation at a place where they are obviously very comfortable, using that technology to learn is genius. Definitely a novel and captivating idea, I would absolutely recommend this Bible to readers ages 4-8; however, older readers reading on their own may also enjoy the awesome interaction opportunity. So cool!

Love Story

Nordeman, Nichole. Love Story: The Hand That Holds Us From The Garden to The Gates. Brentwood, TN: Worthy Publishing. 2012.

SUMMARY:
lovestoryThrough her own personal stories laced with humor, honesty, faith and tears, Christian recording artist Nichole Nordeman shares the written words and thoughts to her album, Music Inspired by the Story. Bringing Biblical characters to life in a modern world, Love Story is so much more than just a book…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
I love her music and now her book…Nichole Nordeman is a favorite. From laughs, to smiles, to tears, to compassion, I joined Nichole on a journey to re-meet the many characters of the Bible. Paralleling Bible stories with her own life and then taking it a step further to parallel with mine was brilliant! The major stories and people of the Bible were included from Old Testament to New Testament and then incorporated into modern day. Wonderful as a gift, this book would also work well as a devotional, Bible Study, or an informational guide to The Story album. Well researched, thought-provoking and insightful, Love Story is just perfect.
