    Book Reviewed on www.whisperingstories.com Goodnight Ipad is a parody for the digital generation of the children’s picture book, ‘Goodnight Moon’.

In this humorous book the author takes us through a list of items to say goodnight to, just like in the original book, but this time they are all electronic devices, oh and Granny is throwing them out of the window one by one after getting fed up of their constant buzzing and beeping. The book is a few years old now so some of the technology has moved on since, such as we have MP3s and Blackberry’s mentioned, but the sentiment is still there and I found it amusing how Granny after listening to the items all day has thought, enough is enough and decided to take action. We live in a world where electronic devices play a big part, even as I type this review on my computer I have my phone next to me, one child is watching Netflix whilst another is playing on his Playstation, and most likely his phone at the same time. It is a lovely reminder that maybe we need to step away from gadgets and devices ever now and again. The illustrations are as funny as the plot and the text. For those of you who have read Goodnight Moon to your children night after night, this would make a great alternative and give your children a giggle. There is no swearing, etc within the pages so it can be read to little ones. Overall, a fun story that just might make you laugh-out-loud and step away from your devices for a while.

    Cute. Yeah, we do rely on new gadgets way too much. Yeah, we need to put them down from time to time.

    Basic plot: Granny rabbit sees (and HEARS) all of the electronic devices around the house and pitches them out the window in an effort to get her distracted family to bed. I thought this was pretty funny. I grinned through the whole thing and felt almost like I was watching a scene from my own household.

I can't tell you how many times I've been tempted to chuck my hubby's phone through a window because he was texting at the dinner table. I loved the frustrated/overwhelmed expression on the granny rabbit's face throughout. Some of the little details in the drawings were also really funny. Good story, good art, good message.

    A short, sweet book highlighting our dependence on technology and the usefulness of knowing when to put it down. I say this as I write on a MacBook with an iPhone in my pocket and a Kindle sitting beside me :P

    I never thought that I would see the day where there would actually be a parody book done on Margaret Wise Brown’s classic children’s book “Goodnight Moon.” Here, Ann Droyd gives us a parody book of the classic children’s book called “Goodnight iPad” which is “Goodnight Moon” for the current generation and wow, this book is absolutely hilarious!

Set up like the plot in “Goodnight Moon,” the characters in this book is a family of rabbits who are constantly seen playing with all kinds of electronics in the current generation such as some of the rabbit kids are playing with an iPad, some are watching a huge LCD Wi-Fi HDTV and some of the rabbit kids have a BlackBerry that plays Eminem songs. When it gets too noisy in the little rabbit house, the old rabbit woman has enough and… Read this book to find out what happens next! Never would I have read a parody book on a famous children’s classic that would be written so cleverly, that even the new generation will easily enjoy the simple storytelling of “Goodnight Moon!” Ann Droyd has certainly done an excellent job at parodying the famous children’s classic by having the characters in this book use electronics that are popular with the current generation such as iPads, BlackBerry phones, Facebook, Netflix and Androids and creating a hilarious story about how having too much technology in the house can get irritating really fast. I was practically laughing out loud when I kept hearing the names of the current electronics (iPad, BlackBerry, Android) being used in the context of a children’s bedtime story since it made the story sound so hilarious and creative at the same time. Ann Droyd’s illustrations are just so hilarious and cute at the same time as the images are filled with yellow cartoony looking rabbits that are constantly being shown playing with whatever new electronic device they got such as images of the young rabbits looking at a LCD Wi-Fi HDTV. Overall, “Goodnight iPad” is easily one of the best parodies of “Goodnight Moon” ever created and will definitely be a hit with children who grew up iPads, Androids, Facebook and all of that good technology in the current times! I would recommend this book to children ages six and up since smaller children might not understand about the different types of electronics being used in this story.

    Can I give this six stars? I'm partial to satire and parody, and this is terrific! "Goodnight iPad" follows the cadence, rhyme, and illustrated scene sequencing of the original "Goodnight Moon", by Margaret Wise Brown, closely. However, it makes serious fun of our growing addictions to bright, noisy, digital media, and the inherent adult frustration with digital media at bedtime. This book will hit a home run with parents of school-aged kids today. My kids, aged 5 and 11, thought it was hilariou Can I give this six stars?

I was laughing at some points because the whole thing was pretty funny especially with the pictures. Especially when (view spoiler)[ the grandma started taking away all the technology and throwing it out the window and her family was looking so horrified and trying to make a leap for their stuff. Haha. It's funny too because it says our technology will still be waiting for us in the morning. And it will, but after grandma tossed it out the window, it wouldn't be fully functioning. Haha. (hide spoiler)] It made me laugh even more because I can imagine people actually doing that and reacting that way. :D I also thought it was a good book because it is relevant to today. It shows us how we are so into our cell phones, TV, and other technology, how technology has come to be a major part of our lives, when sometimes we just need to unplug everything and spend more time with each other and less time with our technology. And it showed us how sometimes we lose sleep because we are so mesmerized by our technology. I recommend this book to everyone. It's pretty funny.

    It's time to go to sleep...but there are so many technological distractions. I saw this when I was in a book store with my Mum. We read it then and there.

The copy we read was a donated book and we were leaving - but I bought this book as soon as I could. I'm glad I did. It's wonderful. It had been years and years since I'd read 'Goodnight Moon' and all of my (or rather, most likely my brother's) picture books are packed up in storage back in New Zealand. I wish they weren't because I am finding picture books more and more fascinating. Since I didn't have my own copy of 'Goodnight Moon', I did what was natural and read an in-store copy. It's amazing how this paraody has taken the same style of illustrations and details and modernized them. Mice now robots, kittens now expected to do things and everything electronic. I noticed that while 'Goodnight Moon' had black and white illustrations when there wasn't two-page spreads, 'Goodnight iPad' had vibrant colour all the way through. I find this parody version quite preferable to the oringal. I suppose because I can relate more to staying up into the night playing Angry Birds and listening to audio books on my tablet than I can to mush. Ew. 'Goodnight iPad' is a great read and a must-own book. I found it strange that I had to go to the Humour section in the store to find it. It should be available in the Children's picture book section. After all, these days five year old kids have Blackberrys and cats have iPads. *I love how they have tons of expensive gadgets but everyone has to either share a bed or sleep on the floor. (From my blog: Quill Café) In accordance with the FTC, I would like to disclose that I purchased this book. The opinions expressed are mine and no monetary compensation was offered to me by the author or publisher.

    A small book which opened my eyes to the extent to which we use technologies nowadays. Well, I do not have most of the gadgets mentioned in the book because of student life. But I can't imagine what kind of turn life will take when I take the job. Even now, just with a laptop and internet connection I have to consciously try very hard to make myself to turn off anything and go to sleep. Don't know what will happen when I will get my BB.

    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 no It is so much fun to go back and read children’s books.
