The very first digital Sandra Boynton book app is here, and it’s completely terrific! iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch rejoice!
Boynton Moo Media teams up with award-winning Loud Crow Interactive, to bring to life her beloved, funny, wildly best-selling bedtime board book, The Going to Bed Book.
“I absolutely adore working with the ridiculously creative and innovative team at Loud Crow,” says Sandra Boynton, “and I am so proud of what we’ve done together with The Going to Bed Book. Our interactive book app version of my book manages to both retain the original board book experience, and add subtle and captivating dimension to it. It’s such wonderful fun. And oh! I am so smitten by Billy J. Kramer’s infinitely reassuring narration for this, and Michael Ford’s understated and lovely piano composition.”
Far beyond any e-book experience, The Going to Bed Book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and thoroughly mesmerizing and delightful 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? Of course! 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 yourself to sleep to the music box sound of beautiful twinkling stars. There's something wonderful to discover on every page.
Boynton adds, “Of course 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

Lovely adaptation of my son's favorite book
My 1 1/2 year old has turned us into a Sandra Boynton household, and this has been one of his favorite books since he was 6 months old. He was thrilled when this book magically appeared on the precious "iPad-uh". The music and voiced narration are beautifully applied, and he has been having a great time exploring the nuances of the various "Easter eggs" throughout the story. My only complaint is that the narration does stop if a finger strays to tap one of the words on the page (which is easy to do when a 1-2 year old is aimlessly poking at the screen to explore what might happen. But we've worked around it, and he continues to figure out what ares of the pages to tap in order to get it to function the way he wants. Thanks for a great app to complement a great story.
I know its a small book but, come on! Really.?
It's flawed in so many ways, it a small book but it shouldn't be this small on a iPad, old tech crammed into a new tech world just has the feel of pleather in a luxury organic leather with fine glass polish world. The same company makes the Peter Rabbit series, AAA quality there, clearly this was built by the D - team. Its hard to touch the tiny text, tiny objects, tiny, tiny, tiny...
When you see red arrows to tell what you can do on the screen, that should tell you, red flag! Its not intuitive to use, even for a child...
Goodnight moon book is done by the same team and i regret buying both of these without reading the reviews first, this book needs to learn from the green eggs and ham series on how a book could be entertaining in this new tech eWorld.
Awesome bedtime book; NO Sound Problems!
I just installed this on my iPad Air running IOS 9.3.2, and I have perfect sound. This is a great quick bedtime story: perfect when you hear, "PLEASE? Just ONE more story?!?"
Suggestion: If you don't have sound, look at the switch to the right of the volume keys (on iPad). If you see orange, flip it. The default setting for that button is MUTE, but you can change it to lock rotation if you prefer (go to
Settings, Use Side Switch For). Some apps ignore it and use the volume settings, but some don't, so if you're not getting sound, that's the first thing you should check. Most people just assume it's a bug in the app. Sorry, it's not! Anyway, it's an easy fix, now that you know about it! I hope everyone who's already complained gets to see this. No child should miss out on this book, it's just too good.
Don't pass this up! Don't pass ANY of
Sandra Boynton's books up.
