Every Superbook Academy course is based on one Superbook episode. Each animated video features modern-day friends Chris and Joy, along with their comical robot, Gizmo, who face some type of dilemma that any child can relate to. For example, they are confronted by a bully, they are tempted to cheat on a test, they disobey their parents, or they get lost on a hike. That’s when Superbook takes them back in time to meet a Bible hero who faced a similar type of problem. By seeing how that person faithfully deals with the difficulty, the children are equipped and empowered by God’s Word to overcome their own challenge.
The Emmy®-nominated Superbook animation videos are broadcast across America and around the world, bringing the Bible to life for the next generation.
Each video is shown in two sections during Large Group of Lesson 1. The opening dilemma, in which Chris, Joy and Gizmo face a modern-day challenge, lasts about 3 minutes. After a discussion, the full Bible story and resolution is shown, lasting about 19 minutes. A condensed Bible story video (lasting about 10 minutes) is available in each course, to show in Lessons 2 and 3 for any children who missed the full Bible story in Lesson 1.
