I thought this was a great book to teach students about how far technology has came and what the world used to be like before electronics took over. As a lesson, I would read the original book Goodnight Moon, then I would read this book. I would have the students compare and contrast both of the books. With a third grade class, you could use this book to teach about parodies and what a parody is. There are many lessons you could use with this book, maybe even have your kids go one week without using any electronics in the classroom.

I like this book because it puts a spin on a classic bedtime story and makes it more modern.

31 months - A gift from Auntie Bug. Certainly more for the adult audience but well done and O quite enjoys it. She loves the Angry Bird reference (yes, we let her play it on occasion). And she especially loves that in the end they are reading Goodnight Moon by flashlight. It will be interesting to see how relevant this book remains (or doesn't) over time. We are trying to keep her mostly unplugged limiting screen time to 1/2 hour a day to encourage maximum play and reading time. ( )

Hilarious and surprisingly sweet. The ending made me smile! ( )

Goodnight iPad is a book based on the story Goodnight Moon. It shows how everyone is now on their technology devices before going to bed. I liked this book for two main reasons. The first reason I liked it was because it is based on real life, and what the world is becoming. Each generation is becoming more and more involved in technology and it showed in this book what each device typically does. For example, it said "There were three little Nooks with ten thousand books." People use Nooks to read books. I think it is good that books evolve as the world evolves because it allows the reader to connect with it more. The second reason I liked this book was because of the humor. There was an old lady who was fed up with all the distractions and noises so she took all of their devices and threw them out the window. That shows how many grandparents today feel about technology. Another thing I found humorous was a play on words with the author's name "Ann Droyd"-that definitely related to the story. One last thing that was interesting and funny was that at the end of the story, after the lady threw out their devices, before bedtime, they started reading Goodnight Moon, which this story is a parody for.

In a bright buzzing room, in the glow of the moon-and iPhones and Androids and Blackberries too-it is time to say goodnight...

Modern life is abuzz. There are huge LCD WiFi HD TVs and Facebook requests and thumbs tapping texts and new viral clips of cats doing flips. Wouldn't it be nice to say goodnight to all that? Like the rest of us who cannot resist just a few more scrolls and clicks, you may find yourself ready for bed while still clinging to your electronics long after dark. This book, which is made of paper, is a reminder for the child in all of us to power down at the end of the day. This hilarious parody not only pokes loving fun at the bygone quiet of the original classic, but also at our modern plugged-in lives. It will make you laugh, and it will also help you put yourself and your machines to sleep. Don't worry, though. Your gadgets will be waiting for you, fully charged, in the morning.
