Goodnight iPad: A New Picture Book for the "Hopelessly Plugged In" (VIDEO)

Are you or your kids "hopelessly plugged in" to the digital world?

Goodnight iPad, a new picture book that parodies the go-to bedtime tale, Goodnight Moon, hits shelves later this month, and it's a goofy must-read for parents. In the book, which you can preview here (video), "a fed-up old woman" attempts to put her grand-bunnies to sleep amid "the bings, blongs, and beeps / Of e-mails and tweets." The book's bunnies are, like yours,' way too busy for sleep: they're mesmerized by a huge LCD Wi-Fi HDTV, playing Doom, or watching viral videos on Facebook.

With sweet and knowing lines like "Goodnight plugs / And power lights / That guide us to pee / In the darkness of night," you may not even miss the original's red balloons, kittens, and ancient-looking telephones.

@ Jolean we have evolved into electronics children are learning how to use computers in Preschool so there is really no difference. There are a multitude of educational games on the iPad & IPhone who teach children how to count & learn their ABC's etc....I read stories to my children every night & we alternate between an electronic story & a physical book. Board games are fun but a lot are not nearly as educational. We have to embrace change and move with the times.
