Book or iPad?

Do kids prefer the interactives that an iPad offers or can a book still capture their imaginations?

I think there’s enough room for both.

Everyone knows the classic Goodnight Moon, but have you read Goodnight iPad?

Let me be clear: it’s a parody.

Book Description:

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.


Everywhere I go I see kids reading/playing/looking at gadgets and as adults know, it can be hard to tear ourselves away from them at the end of the day.  Now there’s a book for that!

Mrs. Tucker, I grew up sans technology so I still prefer the smell and feel of a good 'ol book! Times are changing though. My sisters kids LOVE the iPad!

I'm with you. If I'm reading a book, it's in my hands and not on a screen. Although, if Santa brought me an iPad, I'd be polite and use it!

I just see up close everyday that many families can't afford tech, and others can't/won't share. I see this as another disconnect (excuse the pun) between the haves and the have nots. If schools rely too much on tech to teach there will always be a break down, and does this promote a shorter attention span in kids? Special Ed teachers have complained for years about things like baby einstein and how it has such a negative effect, promoting adhd type behaviors.

I have a passion for books! I have a passion for reading! I have a passion for getting children to read! So, if it is a book or an iPad, I'm all over it!

We read books here. At home the kids use the iPad more to read. Thanks for joining us at the Let's Get Social Sunday link party. Have a great Memorial Day :) Diane @MamalDiane
