A new book is taking a technological twist on a children’s classic bedtime story. Since 1947 Goodnight Moon has been the go-to story to lull children to sleep with its simple rhyme describing a bunny’s bedtime ritual.
Now a parody of the book is poking fun at society’s attachment to technology. Goodnight iPad: A Parody for the Next Generation, turns the names of digital gadgets into a poem that tells the story of an old woman having difficulty sleeping with the beeps of e-mails and tweets.
Written by Ann Droyd (haha) a pseudonym for author David Milgrim, this book holds meaningful lessons for adults who are plugged in 24/7. It’s a reminder to say “goodnight Bing and goodnight pings” because just like our beloved gadgets, we need recharging, too.
