April 29, 2011(Shelby Twp., MI) — BibleRhymes is closing National Poetry Month with a bang (and a book)!
Author, illustrator and animator Ken McCardell teamed up with Don Cassity [an illustrator for Rugrats® and Marvel Comics®] to produce an interactive online version of BibleRhymes’ Zacchaeus. This book comes with animation, narration, music and a dictionary, along with plenty of opportunities to point and click.
BibleRhymes’ Zacchaeus will be followed by 2011 stories of Noah and the Ark and Creation. All of these are first being released as online books, and then as hardcovers.
“Life is good at BibleRhymes,” says McCardell. “I spend all of my time working on books and games and each new story seems like it’s coming out better than the one before. But by producing books online we’re able to keep going back and adding different things to the older books to keep them fresh and new.”
Along with online books, BibleRhymes also offers hardcovers, and Sunday school resources, such as printable pictures to color. And it offers a variety of these for free on its website at www.BibleRhymes.com.
“Developing a fun way for children to learn Bible stories is important to the BibleRhymes team.” says McCardell. “We’re coming out with plenty more in 2011. Visit the user forum at BibleRhymes.com and you can already see pictures being worked on for other books being released later this year.”
