What is Superbook?

Superbook is more than a cartoon that tells Bible stories. 

The start of most Superbook episodes is with Chris, Joy, and Gizmo (the robot). Either Chris or Joy has a situation to deal with such as making the right choice, helping someone, forgiving someone, etc. Then Superbook takes them back in time to a part of the Bible that will help them with their situation back home. The kids and Gizmo interact with the people from the Bible and learn so much!

During the kids' adventure in time, they ask questions and a lot of times Gizmo uses his inner computer to answer the question OR someone from the Bible answers it. After the kids have learned their lesson, Superbook takes them back home at the same time they left, and the kids can now make a good decision and take action.

On Sundays, we watch a 10-minute condensed version of the 30-minute full episodes listed below. So, we encourage parents to let their children watch the full episode before Sunday.

Superbook has 5 seasons. Seasons 1-3 are free and can be watched on Amazon Prime or added to your Roku: CBN Family channel. Seasons 1-2 can be watched on Youtube.

Some episodes are graphically disturbing to small kids.

Come back later to watch Fr. Allen and Angelica talk about their experience with Superbook at home. For now, click here to read why The Waller's like Superbook as a tool to raise their daughter.
