Zonderkidz Announces the Beginners Bible App for iPad

  (September 13, 2012)

Grand Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) September 13, 2012

Zonderkidz has announced that the eagerly awaited Beginners Bible App is now available in the Apple store. The app is based on The Beginners Bible, the bestselling storybook Bible of all time, having sold over 6 million copies since its release in 1989. Complete with stories, coloring pages, games, and audio, children six and under can enjoy their favorite Bible stories all by themselves.

We are excited to offer this app that creates a fun way for kids to learn about the Bible, said Annette Bourland, Senior Vice President Zondervan Group Book Publisher . The Beginners Bible is widely seen as the first Bible a child receives. In a digital world, it is a priority for Zonderkidz to offer a Bible geared for the youngest readers.

The Beginners Bible App was designed for young children to easily use themselves but will also be a valuable resource for parents wanting to participate as well. The illustrations have interactive elements that a child can manipulate using the touch screen.


The Beginners Bible App is available free of charge. The complimentary download includes six interactive Bible stories, coloring pages, puzzles, and a game. Additional story packs will be available for $1.99 and will include six new stories, coloring pages, puzzles, and a new game based on one of the stories. All story packs will be released over the next three to five months. At that time the complete storybook Bible will be available to consumers.

The app has already been met with rave reviews. Craig Groeschel, pastor of Lifechurch.tv said, I was blown away by The Beginners Bible App. This app provides a fun way for kids to interact with the Bible using technology that they can relate to. Lori Cunningham, founder of WellConnectedMom.com said, The Beginners Bible app makes favorite childhood stories come alive in a new way for kids.
