A wonderful interactive bedtime experience…
Sandra Boynton’s classic children’s board book.
The very first digital Sandra Boynton book app is here, and it’s completely terrific! Available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Boynton Moo Media teams up with Loud Crow Interactive to bring to life her beloved, funny, wildly best-selling bedtime board book, The Going to Bed Book.
The Going to Bed Book for iPad app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, and as you swipe the pages, you can see the thick edges of each page. It’s a truly brilliant approach offering lively interactivity and thoroughly mesmerizing discovery. Imagine an ark that rocks, characters that respond to touch with sound and movement. Tap water that turns on and off, and steam that fogs the screen. Can you write your name in the steam? There are teeth to brush, and a group exercise session with ten pajama-clad animals (big and small) each with its own unique exercise. Help the little piggy turn off the lights, then rock to sleep to the sound of twinkling stars. There’s something wonderful to discover on every page.
Sandra Boynton said ” The Going to Bed Book app is first and foremost for children, and I know they will be captivated and delighted. But it’s also perfect for agitated high-level executives. What a great evening-time alternative to reviewing the minutes of last week’s Near-Term Strategic Wombat Acquisitions meeting.”
★ The first Sandra Boynton book app, going far beyond what an e-book experience can offer
★ Touch, pull, and turn animals and objects to make them move, or tilt your device to watch things slide and cascade
★ Wonderful resonant and gentle narration by British Invasion legend, Billy J. Kramer
★ Boynton’s original text and illustrations for her popular The Going to Bed Book (over 5 million in print!)
★ Realistic page turning interactions just like the original board book
★ “The Big Guy Reads It” with word highlighting to help improve reading skills
★ Or “I want to read it myself” and hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger
★ What’s next from Boynton Moo Media and Loud Crow Interactive? Hint: What do three singing pigs say?
You can choose to read the book yourself, the full text of the story is displayed in Boynton’s careful penmanship, or have a narrator read it to you. As the narrator speaks, each word is highlighted when he says it. Tap any word to hear it read aloud, whether you’ve turned the narrator off or not.
Its a joy to read with the kids and when its time for the cocoa, just shut the smart cover on the ipad and when you open it Sandra Boynton’s bed time world comes alive
We absolutely loved The Going to Bed Book for iPad before it was an app but the iPad version makes the book better than any pop-up book ever could be. It is interactive, meaningful and a sheer joy… even the kids loved it!
