Scriptures 4 Kids

I came across this website recently:

The site is the creation of Angela Roberts, mother of 6. She wanted to create something to help kids not only learn to read but to do so in the context of the scriptures. 

It's got stories from the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants (Bible stories coming soon) written for kids. The stories are written at 4 different reading levels to allow kids of varying ages to take advantage of the site. There is also narrative with each story so that kids can have it read to them over the computer.

The biggest draw for me (no surprise here) is that there are games associated with the stories as well! They have focused on trying to use current technologies to offer fun games for kids to play online.

From the website:
"Scriptures 4 Kids has embraced this technology and gaming.  We have created, what we hope, will be fun and educational games that will not only be fun, but will help your children apply the scriptures to their daily lives. Each game teaches gospel principles from the scriptures.  At the end of each game thought provoking questions, relating to the principles taught in that game, are asked so that children will have help applying those principles to their life."

There are currently only 2 games open for kids to play, but the site explains that more games are scheduled to be released in the summer. I contacted Angela and she sent me several images from games that are forthcoming. Find them below.
