The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton is very, very dear to my heart.   I probably read it aloud at least 300 times when my kids were small.

If I’m honest, I really don’t want anybody messing with it.  Which is why I was so relieved when the app version blew my socks off.

Why we like it:
At first I thought the interactive elements of this story app were too subtle, but it turns out that this is a great strength.  Your kids aren’t going to discover every single animation the first time through.

For example, if you turn on the hot water on the teeth brushing page, you get hot water.  But if you turn it on and leave it on, the entire page fogs up.  Then you can draw in the fog with your finger.  Brilliant!

See if you kids can figure out how to throw the clothes on the floor on the pajamas page.

We tested version 12, which is compatible with the iPad.  There’s an iPhone version too.  Developer Loud Crow Interactive. Read our disclosure policy.
