Great parody on the classic "Goodnight Moon." I have used this to help my son (age 6) that too much of a good thing, including technology, is not healthy. This book would be great in a Media Literacy course and could be used as a jumping off point for students to write their own parodies using classic Children's Literature. ( )

Another classic novel that has a new take. It's great for the technology generation and really witty.

This hilarious, endearing picture-book parody is a must-read for all next-gen kids. ( )

A cute parody about how technology obsessed we are as a society. Perfect for children that have forgotten/never known what it's like to not have as much technology. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399158561, Hardcover)

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.
