So, it's Perfect Picture Book Friday, and I was torn between two books. One is another body book and the other was this book, Goodnight iPad. I'll have to admit that as much as I do love technology (would be totally lost without it) we all get a little too addicted, at least in my family. But, I love what this book does. It presents reality in a parody and I actually laughed reading it to my kids. So, in the spirit of laughing at myself, and my own addiction to technology, I present you with Goodnight iPad.
Title: Goodnight iPad
Written and Illustrated by: Ann Droyd/ David Milgrim
Published by Blue Rider Press, 2011
Suitable for: Children and Adults
Theme/Topics: Humor, bed time, technology
Overview/Synopsis: It's time to unplug and say good night.
Activities: Ask kids what things they can say good-night too. Would it just be electronics or toys too? Parents, grand parents, siblings, Legos?
Why I Chose This Book: A sucker for anything funny, I picked it up mostly as a joke. But as I read through it, laughing of course, it does represent where we are now and actually helped me get my kids into bed one night.
