Minno Laugh and Grow Bible for Kids

Jesus with open arms - Minno Laugh And Grow Bible





Kennedy Unthank

TV Series Review

It’s the greatest story ever told—broken down into bite-sized chunks for kids.

Christian children’s streaming service Minno is bringing the book Laugh and Grow Bible for Kids to life in 4-to-5-minute animated episodes. Currently, the first four episodes recount not only the birth of Jesus but also how it fulfills God’s promises to Abraham. But with the animation pulling from 336 pages and 52 stories “intentionally designed to help families journey through the Bible in one year,” we suspect that there’s much more to come.

The Laugh and Grow Bible for Kids, created by VeggieTales’ Phil Vischer, aims to help children understand the gospel and other important truths, breaking down complex theological ideas into easy-to-understand lessons. This ideal is paralleled within Minno’s TV adaptation, in which we not only hear the Bible story itself, but we also learn about why the story and the surrounding context of it is important.

Minno Laugh and Grow Bible for Kids will entertain children with its simple-yet-fun animation and its engaging storytelling. But most importantly, it’ll lay the groundwork to help you teach them the gospel.

Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. He doesn’t think the ending of Lost was “that bad.”
