Customer Reviews

Nice app

He is Risen is a very nice app explaining the true meaning behind Easter and why we celebrate it. The illustration are beautiful and I liked that the pictures changed and if the pictures were flowing with the story. I liked that there were multiple options to read the book, learn and plenty of activities for follow up with children such as a word search, mazes and painting. I like that the activities have a variety of levels of difficulties appropriate for a wide range of children. My favorite activity is the painting because children can take a picture of what they painted, which is nice.

Overall I think this is a wonderful book for children showing the meaning of Easter. I like the vivid images that are almost a mini movie as you turn the pages. I think that the app if engaging and can support learning. I like that there are two different reading level (but I would like to see an easier on added). Also, it is not only a nice book but there are plenty of games to keep children interested which is an excellent addition to the story.

Nice re-telling of Jesus' story

This picture book has great illustrations and activities about Jesus' death and resurrection. It differentiates for its intended audience's reading levels: read aloud, read silently with pop-ups, or simply reading silently with no pop-ups or narration. There are optional settings for music, reading pace and sounds as well. Even though it is rated 4+, it may be somewhat lengthy for a pre-schooler. If that is the case, the adult can simply stop the story, remember on which page the story stopped, and choose that page when the app is opened again. This app is well worth the cost--it is a great way to share the resurrection story with young children and young readers.

Nicely done, some liberties taken

This story is well thought out and interesting. The activities are entertaining and have different levels of difficulty. The text is highlighted as it is read which helps emerging readers. What I don't care for is some of the liberties taken with the story. It has Daniel saying that Jesus looked happy right before he died. At one point it has a character saying "never fight with other men". While the Bible talks about turning the other cheek, it also allows for man to kill in wars. I would like to see an indication that I went the wrong way on the mazes.
