The Best Christian Podcasts for Kids

Podcasts are not necessarily the first thing I think of when I think of toddlers. But in our house we love them for naptime, car time, anytime. As soon as we turn a podcast on, our toddler starts to listen and relax. We’ve incorporated them into our bedtime routine, and the best part: because she enjoys listening to the podcast, when it’s bed time, she puts herself in bed, because she’s ready to listen.

I can’t say this will work for everyone, but it worked for us. And podcasts can be a great way to help entertain on a roadtrip, sneak some learning into playtime, and build faith throughout your day.

Here are our favorite faith-based podcasts and audio resources:

Jesus is Better

“Jesus is Better” is a podcast that walks children through the Bible, story-by-story. It talks about the choices people in these stories had to make, whether to follow God’s plan or their own plan. It also shows where Jesus is in the story. This podcast leaves kids and parents encouraged and built-up in their faith.

Kids Bible Stories

The Kids Bible Story Podcast artfully shares the Bible with young listeners. It relates each Bible story in a way that children can understand and apply to their own lives.

Saint Stories for Kids

This beautiful podcast teaches kids about the Saints of the Catholic church, and the example they have left for us to follow. Each episode shares general information about the saint as well as a story from their life and ministry.

Dan and Louie

This is a great audio resource for toddlers. Dan Betzer is a pastor who is also a vantriloquist. With his vantriloquist dummy, Louie, he created an audio Bible for kiddos. This isn’t a new resource (I listened to these growing up), but they’re great for little kids. Vale loves them and it’s great to know that she’s actually learning the Bible as she listens. Also, each story is only about 10 minutes long. So we can hear a whole story as we drive to the mall. You have to pay to get access to the stories (I think about $7/month for their streaming subscription, or $2.50 to download and own each story). However, there’s a free 7-day trial. So you can try it, and if your kid hates them, you’re not roped into anything.

Paws and Tales

From the imagination of Chuck Swindoll, Paws and Tales is about woodland critters that go to school, have faith in God, and are learning just like regular kids. This is another of Vale’s favorites.

Adventures in Odyssey

For those unfamiliar with this popular radio program, “Adventures in Odessey is geared towards bigger kids (8+). It is an audio drama that shows children where faith and the Gospel apply to everyday life!!

Miss Rory’s Story Emporium

This is a program we haven’t listened to as much, because we just found it. However its style is similar to Adventures in Oddessy. They start out in Miss Rory’s Book Shop, where there are stacks upon stacks of books. And then she tells a story. However, instead of her reading a story, they switch into an audio drama. This is another faith-based program geared towards kids, with the purpose of having families spend time with their kiddos, not around a screen.
