How is the lesson time divided between videos and teaching?

Superbook Academy strikes the perfect balance between attention-grabbing media and hands-on ministry. Exciting videos are shown during Large Group to engage and captivate the children, followed by lots of time for personal interaction in Small Group, where teachers develop warm relationships with students as they nurture their faith in Christ.

All videos are shown during Large Group, which lasts about 30 minutes. The longest video—the full Bible story video shown during Lesson 1—is about 20 minutes long. All other videos are much shorter, ranging from 2 to 10 minutes in length. These include the Bible Background and music videos shown in Lesson 2, and the Signposts and The Salvation Poem music videos shown in Lesson 3. Plus, the Condensed Bible Story video (about 10 minutes) may be shown in Lessons 2 and 3 if any children missed the full Bible story in Lesson 1.

No videos are shown during Small Group, which lasts about 30 minutes and can expand up to 60 minutes with Additional Activities.

What is in a Superbook Bible story video?

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.

What materials are included in each course?

Each Superbook Academy course includes:

  • Three complete lessons that can be used once a week for Sunday school, children’s church, Bible clubs, or midweek services; three days in a row, such as for homeschool or vacation Bible school (VBS); or even all on one day, for a retreat.
  • Every course features its own Bible story video, Bible Background video, Signpost video, and music videos.
  • Each of the three lessons include easy-to-follow Leader Guides for Large Group, Small Group, and Additional Activities.
  • Each Leader Guide features clear instructions, simple lists of materials, and teaching scripts with class questions and sample answers. New teachers may use the easy-to-follow scripts, while veteran teachers may choose to present the lessons in their own words.
  • Clear teacher instructions, Bible memory verses and ample activities, games and beautifully designed, printable materials.
  • Original professionally produced music videos featuring the Superbook dancers and/or animation from the Bible story, providing children an opportunity to learn to worship the Lord.
  • A Discipleship Challenge that asks children to put biblical principles into practice for all three lessons, helping them become not only hearers but doers of God’s Word.
  • Multi-screen compatible enables you and your students to watch Superbook videos from any connected device—tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and smartphones.
  • Teacher Dashboard that allows teachers to plan, prepare and present lessons from any Internet-connected device on any screen, with no special software to install.
  • Student interaction, with videos promoting class participation through fun quizzes and countdowns, plus Small Group lessons featuring lots of questions and discussions to keep kids engaged.

A Superbook Academy subscription is required for DVD purchase. Please allow 5–7 business days for DVDs to be delivered.

Can I order just one course?

You can’t order just one course because your subscription to Superbook Academy gives you full access to all of its online courses. You can subscribe to Superbook Academy for just one month by clicking here Monthly Subscription

Will I need to find or purchase lots of extra materials for games and lessons?

Superbook Academy is designed to be used by churches of all sizes around the world—so the materials needed for games and lessons are quite simple. You can probably find most of them in your kitchen pantry or your church’s broom closet! Plus, the Leader Guides feature beautifully designed crafts, posters, and other supplemental materials that are quick to print and will help make the lesson more meaningful for your students.

What is the basic premise of each Superbook episode?

Superbook features two friends named Chris and Joy, along with their comical robot, Gizmo. In each episode, they face some type of dilemma to which any child can relate. 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 challenges.

I already own the regular Superbook DVDs. Can I just purchase the Superbook Academy materials and not the videos?

It’s great that you already own some Superbook DVDs! However, the Bible story videos are just the beginning of what is included in Superbook Academy. For each three-lesson course, you will also want to show your students all the other exciting videos that are exclusively available with your subscription to Superbook Academy, including:

  • The Bible Background video, showing the archaeological, historical and cultural context of each course
  • The Signposts video, revealing how each Bible story points to Christ and how He fulfills biblical prophecy
  • The Condensed Bible Story video, which can be shown in Lessons 2 and 3 for children who missed the full Bible story video in Lesson 1
  • The Salvation Poem music video, presenting God’s plan through Jesus in a way children can easily understand
  • Original music videos, and more.

Plus, your subscription to Superbook Academy includes instant online access to a growing number of courses, with each lesson featuring Leader Guides for Large Group, Small Group, and Additional Activities. For all of these reasons, the Academy materials are not available separately

Does Superbook Academy work in a homeschool setting?

Superbook Academy is an excellent resource for homeschooling. The curriculum’s Leader Guides feature easy-to-follow interactive scripts that can be used with groups of children or an individual child. Most games are designed for four or more children but can be adapted for fewer participants. The curriculum is designed for Grades 1-6, but older students may also appreciate the content in the Bible Background videos, Signposts videos, and Bible lessons.

Does Church Edition work in a homeschool setting?

Depending on the size of your homeschool family or co-op and how often you gather, Superbook: Church Edition may be a good solution for your group.

What are Digital Downloads?

When you order Superbook: Church Edition modules, you will be given access to download all the
module materials directly from the Superbook: Church Edition website.

What is the difference between the Superbook Academy and the regular Superbook DVDs?

Superbook Academy church curriculum is specially designed for churches and children’s ministries to dig deeper into the exciting Bible stories that are presented in Superbook episodes. Each Superbook Academy course is based on one Superbook episode and also features other videos that are exclusive to Superbook Academy—such as the Bible Background video, Signposts video, The Salvation Poem (Gospel presentation) video, music videos, and more. Every course includes three full lessons—each lasting from 60 to 90 minutes—with Leader Guides featuring easy-to-follow scripts for Large Group, Small Group, and Additional Activities.

What is the difference between the Church Edition and the regular Superbook DVDs?

Superbook: Church Edition is designed for churches and includes teaching material and corresponding videos designed for a classroom/teaching setting. Although each Superbook episode is the same in the Church Edition, the Church Edition also includes videos that are exclusive to the curriculum, and all videos are edited to go with the print materials.

I already own the regular Superbook DVDs. Can I just purchase the Church Edition materials and not the videos?

Superbook: Church Edition includes three weeks of video content that helps teach each Bible story and weekly lesson. Although the curriculum uses the Superbook episodes from the regular DVDs, it also includes videos that are exclusive to the curriculum. For this reason, we’re unable to sell the other curriculum materials from the Church Edition separately.

Superbook®: Church Edition is a multiyear elementary Bible study program for grades 1–6, designed in a modular fashion, that enables churches to adapt the program to their individual needs, i.e., Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, midweek, or special events.

There are 13 modules per year; each module contains three lessons around one central Bible story. Children enjoy an in-depth study through Large and Small Group sessions along with follow-up with parents.Through this process, children go deeper into the Bible, become empowered as they memorize Scripture, and apply what they learn in their everyday lives.

The design of this curriculum helps churches forge a partnership with families as they work in cooperation with each other to provide the spiritual, biblical, and faith guidance children need.

The following depicts the Scope and Sequence for Year 1 of the curriculum. Modules can be chosen and purchased individually or, with discounted price, by the year.

What is Superbook?

In 1981, The Christian Broadcasting Network created a children’s animated Bible series as part of an outreach to the nation of Japan. Little was it realized what impact the series would have in Japan and throughout the world.

Research performed during and after the outreach showed that this series was an unprecedented success. Superbook, also known as Animated Parent and Child Theater, is an anime television series produced by Tatsunoko Productions in Japan in conjunction with The Christian Broadcasting Network in the United States. During its launch in Japan, it is estimated that over 4 million people watched each weekly episode of Superbook on television, resulting in the Bible becoming the best-selling book in that country.

From Japan, the Superbook series went on air throughout the world from Asia to North America. By 1989, in the midst of economic and political turmoil, Superbook began broadcasting in the Soviet Union to astounding results and aired during prime time on the Soviet National Channel. CBN received over 6 million letters from children, introducing a whole new generation to the Bible. Even today, the Superbook Kids Club is one of the highest rated live-action children’s programs in Ukraine.

Since first airing in Japan, the series has now been broadcast in over 100 countries, translated into over 40 languages, and viewed by over 500 million people.

CBN is producing a reimagined, computer-generated version of Superbook. The goal is to produce a new series that will honor the life-changing legacy of the original, and reintroduce it to the new, media-
savvy generation.

This new series is created by an Emmy® Award-winning team whose credits include Disney’s The Lion King, Mulan,and Beauty and the Beast. It has the potential to reach even more lives than the original series with powerful lessons that present spiritual truths and maintains biblical accuracy.
