Editorial Reviews

Review

Goodnight Moon gets millennial in this plugged-in parody … Milgrim mimes the original with perfect pitch, capturing us at our most technology-dependent.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“A truly hysterical parody of the children’s classic is a bedtime story for the entire digitally connected family.”—Family Circle

It is so much fun to go back and read children's books. The simplicity and beauty of the story and illustrations are a joy.

Goodnight Ipad is a parody of the much beloved Goodnight Moon book. Those of us who have had to battle teens over shutting down their electronics and just reading a book will find the humor not only in the words, but also in the illustration. And if you look close, even the daddy is a bit troubled by having to give it all up for the evening.

A sweet fun book that you will not mind reading over and over to your young ones.

Goodnight IPAD is a delightful, fun parody on the classic Goodnight Moon. I love the book itself. My low rating has to do with the quality of the binding. I am an elementary school music teacher and used this book as a read aloud. It fell apart almost immediately.

As a parent who read this book to 2 kids now grown with children of their own, it was a blast to see and enjoy this parody (with alot of truth in it). My son, now 29, laughed out loud and enjoyed both the text and the illustrations. His kids, aged 5 and 2 loved the illustrations, though they didn't quite get the joke. I was able to point out the differences by holding and reading their own copy of Good Night Moon as we read this new version. BUT-----the book fell apart!!!! After only a week of use, with only adults handling and turning pages, half of the pages separated from the binding. I contacted Amazon, told them my problem, and a new complementary copy was sent to me, with a free shipping label to send back the damaged book. Let's hope the new copy stays intact long enough for my grandchildren to read to their children!!!!

A very entertaining and clever book. My three year old loves it (and loves Goodnight Moon), yet is too young to really appreciate the humor. But he knows what Angry Birds, smart phones and tablets are, and he gets that we have to put those away to have a proper bedtime story (he thinks it's so funny that the little bunny on the last page is reading Goodnight Moon--"That's what we do at bedtime!")

Notice 2001: A Space Odyssey on the LCD Wi-Fi HD TV? The obelisk and the monkeys...A very clever message to any adult reader who notices. A good present for technophile parents.

Gave this to my granddaughters for Christmas. The youngest one felt the wrapper and said it was probably a boring old book. Once she opened it I had her read it to us all, and she was laughing all the way through. Very clever and nostalgic for all of us who spent hundreds of hours reading Goodnight Moon.

The story line and the graphics mimic the original to a tee. Love the current jargon and techno savvy commentary. Wonderfully executed. Had to purchase it for my grandson, but I feel his Mom & Dad, (software & electrical engineers) are going to love it too. "Goodnight Moon" was my son's favorite and he reads it so often to his own son. This will make a great Christmas gift for all on your list!

A take off on the ever popular Goodnight Moon, this is certainly a timely publication. Among the younger population, and older too, for that matter, the IPad is now a way of life. Some users must even take their gadgets to bed with them. And, it is always a good idea to publish a book that will encourage children to pick it up to read. Goodnight iPad should prove to be one of them. I bought this book and gave it to my daughter who is a teacher of elementary grades. I think they will enjoy it.

So cute and funny! We read this one all the time. My kids can totally relate to this book, and I think it is hilarious and clever.
We have bought it as a gift for other families with young kids.
