Goodnight iPad: a Parody for the Next Generation
By: Ann Droyd
Once upon a time, there was a house with EVERY gadget you could ever want! It had “3 little Nooks with 10,000 books”, a computer game that LAUNCHES a bird over the MOON, and even an LCD HD TV with WiFi capabilities!
With all the “BiNgS, BONGS, and bEEpS” grandma will NEVER get any sleep! So she decides that it’s time for all of it to go out the window!!!!!
Goodnight iPad is a FuN children’s book that parodies the original classic, Goodnight Moon. In Goodnight Moon, we say goodnight to the stars and the moon, but in this book we say goodnight to our iPads, facebook accounts, twitters, texts, Angry Birds, and even Eminem.
Parents and children alike will be able to have a good laugh and be able to relate to the concept of the struggle of saying goodnight to our electronics that we all love so much. This book is a refreshingly fun look at our society and our attachment to our technology. Goodnight iPad can also be a great book for little ones that aren’t ready to get off of their gaming system in time for bed.
I hope you have a fun time putting down the iPad and turning off the TV in exchange for this lovely book.
P.S. Don’t just take my word for it, listen to what others have to say!
“This book, which is made of paper, is a reminder for the child in all of us to power down at the end of the day. This hilarious parody not only pokes loving fun at the bygone quiet of the original classic, but also at our modern plugged-in lives. It will make you laugh, and it will also help you put yourself and your machines to sleep. Don’t worry, though. Your gadgets will be waiting for you, fully charged, in the morning.” – Penguin Publishing
