Boynton Moo Media teams up with award-winning Loud Crow Interactive, to bring to life her beloved, funny, wildly best-selling bedtime board book, The Going to Bed Book.

“I absolutely adore working with the ridiculously creative and innovative team at Loud Crow, and I am so proud of what we’ve done together with The Going to Bed Book. Our interactive book app version of my book manages to both retain the original board book experience, and add subtle and captivating dimension to it. It’s such wonderful fun. And oh! I am so smitten by Billy J. Kramer’s infinitely reassuring narration for this, and Michael Ford’s understated and lovely piano composition.” - Sandra Boynton

Far beyond any e-book experience, The Going to Bed Book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and thoroughly mesmerizing and delightful discovery.


* Imagine! An ark that rocks.

* Touch, pull, and turn animals and objects to make them move, or tilt your device to watch things slide and cascade

* Tap water that turns on and off, and steam that fogs the screen. Can you write your name in the steam? Of course!

* There are teeth to brush, and a group exercise session with ten pajama-clad animals (big and small) each with its own unique exercise.

* Help the little piggy turn off the lights, then rock yourself to sleep to the music box sound of beautiful twinkling stars.

* There's something wonderful to discover on every page.

* "The Big Guy Reads It" narration mode with word highlighting to help improve reading skills

* Or “I want to read it myself” and hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger

* Wonderful resonant and gentle narration by British Invasion legend, Billy J. Kramer

* Boynton’s original text and illustrations for her popular The Going to Bed Book (over 5 million in print!)

Boynton adds, “Of course The Going to Bed Book app is first and foremost for children, and I know they will be captivated and delighted. But it’s also perfect for agitated high-level executives. What a great evening-time alternative to reviewing the minutes of last week’s Near-Term Strategic Wombat Acquisitions meeting.”

Please fix the steamy sink crash

Great app. But ever since upgrading to iPhone X, if you trigger the steamy sink on the brushing teeth page, the app stalls and crashes. Now on XS Max and still having same problem for the past year now.

Love this. Get the bundle

My husband and I both use these. iPhone 6 Plus and 7 plus. Never have issues except 1-2 times if my phone had been on vibrate when I went into app there wouldn’t be sound. Turn vibrate off, exit app and go back and it’s perfect. My children love these. 2 and 3 and both with autism. When my son, 2, is having meltdowns sometimes the sound of this book is all that’ll bring him out of it. Works on his fine motor skills too.

Updated at last!

Thanks so much for this update! We commute to my daughter's daycare by subway, and not a morning goes by that she doesn't go through all of the Boynton books on my phone. They are by far her favorite apps, and I was worried that the next iOS update would not support them. Here's hoping the other books come soon!
