VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) has launched the "Superbook Kids Bible" iPhone app to support its Emmy-nominated children's television series, Superbook. Released in late March, the app has experienced phenomenal success, spending two weeks in the top ten on the iTunes Book Chart with the likes of Kindle, Barnes and Noble, and Marvel Comics.
"Our vision is to bring the Bible to the children of the world," said CBN's CEO Gordon Robertson. "Mobile devices are a tremendous way to reach people anywhere, anyplace, anytime. The Superbook Kids Bible app is a wonderful version of the Bible and a fun way for children to learn about God."
The app is a media-rich experience that helps bring the Bible to life with videos and images from the Superbook animation series as well as engaging interactive games. All content is embedded within scripture, so children can easily interact with it from within the context of the Bible. This app also includes profiles of people, places and artifacts from the Bible as well as providing Biblical answers to questions that are common to kids.
According to "Kids and Apps: A New Era of Play" study released by The NPD Group in May 2012, kids aged 2-14 use an app-capable device an average of 5 days out of each week. The Superbook Kids Bible app offers children a wonderful alternative to other apps in the marketplace, giving them the opportunity to journey through the Bible to experience the greatest stories ever told.

One of CBN's goals for Superbook is to create a high-quality series that can compete with the sophisticated animation to which children are now accustomed. A testament to this quality is that Superbook.TV (http://www.Superbook.TV) was recently nominated for a Webby Award in the Religion & Spirituality category. Facing competition from the Huffington Post and CNN, the site captures this vision by communicating Bible stories in a whole new way through compelling interactivity.
