Christian Children’s Media
Quality Is Key
Best Christian Children’s Media
Besides pointing you to the best Christian children’s books, Theotots also wants to help you find the top Christian children’s videos, YouTube channels, apps, etc.
Here are some to consider:
Bible Adventures (on YouTube), a companion to The Bible App for Kids
Listener Kids (on YouTube)
The Greatest Journey App from Samaritan’s Purse
Benjamin Cello (Catholic but not overtly so)
Buck Denver (I’ve just seen a bit.)
I haven’t seen Slugs and Bugs videos yet.
Beginner’s Bible cartoons
Psalty the Song Book
*VeggieTales (Phil Vischer decided to make it more gospel- centered a few years ago, but I haven’t personally seen the newer ones.)
On a somewhat related note, I will comment on The Chosen TV series.
From a missiological point of view, it’s golden- like The Vulgate for our time. From a Biblical point of view, I have some reservations. In terms of children’s ministry, I don’t think that it’s a fit because children are not the target demographic. That is to say that it’s not a contextualized gospel presentation for children. The dramatic elements are engaging for adults but too heavy for children who have different needs, like the need to simply smile and dance for Jesus, free of all the arguing, fear, etc. that is highlighted among the characters in The Chosen.
I’m a big fan, but that doesn’t mean that I let my kids watch it. I learned my lesson after letting my oldest see part of Revelation Media's Pilgrim’s Progress.
