A Perfect Little App. Just needs more content!
So helpful at bedtime, I’m really glad I found this. The free story is quiet, lovely and was requested by my 2 year old frequently for some time. Now that she’s 3 we have purchased the other stories (there are only three of them and a bargain at .99 each). Each story seamlessly transitions into a long bedroom scene at the end which is brilliant, the perfect tool for helping young kids drift off to sleep without realizing it. The scene is a child’s toy filled bedroom slowly being revealed in a sleepy segment that balances soft, sweet music with just enough camera movement to hold the attention of a tired kid with heavy eyes. My daughter tries to watch closely as different sections of the room are panned to or zoomed in on as she seeks out hidden characters or counts their appearances in the space. It lulls her to dream land on our roughest nights when some extra help is needed - almost every time! And since it’s the parents (not the kids) who get tired of watching the same content repeatedly, I really hope they are actually working on new stories; the app has said they are “coming soon” for a long time now. My daughter - and especially I - look forward to seeing more!

Thanks for the awesome review! I'm currently working on more content. Our next story, "Ella the Phant" is almost ready for scoring and narration. We're hoping to release it before the end of the year. It helps to know the app is useful and parents appreciate it. :-) As you can probably tell, each story takes months to produce, especially since I can only work on them when I'm not "at work." But reviews like yours give me an extra boost to stay up late and get it done!
Strongly Recommend for Language Development
As an Early Education School Psychologist, I conduct assessments of children 2-4 years of age in order to determine if they present with any type of disability that may negatively impact their learning. By 3-years of age, children are expected to comprehend and verbally express over 500 words and should be putting together 3 to 4 word sentences when speaking. However, many children that I assess only use approximately 50 words in their vocabulary, so I am constantly urging parents and caregivers to read out loud to their children. The Good Night Tales series is an absolutely wonderful way to increase children’s language exposure. In our busy world of video games and social media, listening to stories read aloud can teach kids comprehension skills, new vocabulary words and overall language skills, and the love for reading. I would strongly recommend this series to parents, educators, preschool teachers, early education centers, and anyone who enjoys listening to stories while viewing beautifully created and age appropriate high quality art.
Need more stories
So my 4 yr old loves these stories. We have purchased all of them. But my son has played them over and over. Is there any updates on new releases. I am willing to pay extra for more stories this probably the best bedtime app. We currently have. Just hoping you guys are making more? Has COVID slowed things down? Anyways thank you SO MUCH!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! This is a personal passion project, so I work on stories at night and on the weekend. COVID has definitely complicated things. We currently have an original story in production called, "Ella the Phant." It's almost completely illustrated, and as soon as the animation is complete, it will be scored and narrated. I'm hoping to get this done before the end of the year. We also have additional stories being written. As we get closer to a release of "Ella", I'll post samples on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
