This countdown to sleepy-time explores the dreamy comforts and joys of slumber for little ones who dare to go.
All around the world, sleep-deprived parents face the nightly challenge of luring willful little ones toward dreamland. This unassuming tale gives parents an edge, with every sleep-inducing possibility an app can provide. The 15-page story—with its singsong-y rhyme scheme, model-of-calm narration and lullabylike musical score—invites sleepyheads to fly off to dreamland to discover what awaits them there. And who wouldn’t want to go where you are the king or queen of dreams, flying about on a blanket while cute little animals swing on stars and slide down rainbows, excited at your arrival? Is there a soul in the world who wouldn’t be eager to be rocked and kissed by moonbeams? Each page features age-appropriate interactive elements for tiny fingers to explore, along with repetitive, skill-building moments (counting sheep, counting down to sleep) for more alert babies and toddlers.
Parents and children alike will find this drowsy, dreamy tale an indispensable delight. The big question is who’ll doze off first. (iPad storybook app. 6 mos.-2)
