Book


A parody of the children's classic and a hilarious gift for anyone that finds modern life funny and absurd.

In a bright buzzing room, in the glow of the moon-and iPhones and Androids and Blackberries too-it is time to say goodnight...
Modern life is abuzz. There are huge LCD WiFi HD TVs and Facebook requests and thumbs tapping texts and new viral clips of cats doing flips. Wouldn't it be nice to say goodnight to all that? Like the rest of us who cannot resist just a few more scrolls and clicks, you may find yourself ready for bed while still clinging to your electronics long after dark. 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.

    This is a wonderful book that helps remind adults and kids to be careful with their amount of plug in time. Cute story!

    Definitely not worth the money. I purchased this book to use with one of my students with Autism. I had hoped the book would help him see how his obsession with technology is limiting his interaction with others. The humor in this book will be beyond his level of understanding.

    During this twenty first century of children becoming sway vie on iPads an all types of small electrical gadgets and three D tv's like my granddaughter for one; at the age of two, this book is the best bed time story that we have adopted to get her to go to nighty night.

    My 6 year old just finished reading "Goodnight iPad" and he was inspired to write a review. This is a funny, timely parody of "Goodnight Moon" loaded with the stuff of our modern lives: cell phones, Mac book air, and iPads, all of which are thrown out the window at bedtime by frustrated adults. My whole family, adults and kids alike, laughed heartily as we read.
  • Awesome!!

    Cute read. Reminds us we need to slow down, detach, and focus on family. As I write this at 4:10 am on my iPad! Lol
