Today’s children are growing up in a society that is full of technology and instant information. Many toddlers are playing games, reading books, and pecking away at a computer keyboard or tablet before they enter pre-school. What this means to parents and teachers is that if we want to capture their attention while teaching them about Jesus, you must embrace the technology that is available to us today.
If you are the parent of a small child or teach children in the church in any capacity, you certainly should check out The Little One’s Bible. Available for your iPad, kindle Fire, and Nook Color. The Little One’s Bible is the largest illustrated Bible app for kids. I recently had the opportunity to check out this application and I was very impressed. My first thought was, “What a great tool to use to teach Sunday School lessons to toddlers!”
When you open the application on your tablet you are presented with numerous stories from both the Old and New Testaments. You can then choose to share some of the greatest children’s stories in the Scriptures including the story of Noah, Jonah, and the prodigal son. When you choose a story, you are presented with great illustrations that are bright and bold to capture your child’s attention. Along with the illustration a narrative of the story, written for children, allows you to read the story to your young one as your flip through the pages. And flipping through the pages requires just a simple swipe of the screen.
