Goodnight iPad is another parody of the ever famous Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. This one, by David Milgrim under the pseudonym Ann Droyd, showcases a family that is so plugged in and dependent on their electronic devices that the mother of the house throws the devices out of the window. She does this in order to get her family to sleep.
It is filled with wonderful illustrations, so my daughter wanted me to read it to her for her naptime story. She was more interested in the baby bunny than the electronic devices that the story was about. But she is only 2, so I understand that she would identify with the character closest to her in age.
I thought it was a cute story with a great message: that it’s a good idea to unplug every once in a while. Our precious electronic devices will always be there when it is time to plug back in. This is a lesson I need to try and listen to, because I hate not being plugged in.
