"It's been a long day
and bedtime has come.
When little bears fight it,
tired grownups succumb."
When the sun sets in Bear Country, the birds and squirrels and ladybugs gather round the treehouse to watch the Bear Family's great bedtime battle. It begins when Papa Bear says, "It's eight o' clock, cubs. Time for bed." But Brother and Sister Bear will do anything to postpone their bedtime. After all, who wants to go to bed when you can play with dinosaurs, have a tea party, and get piggy back rides? Mama and Papa Bear soon learn that getting the little cubs to bed is going to be more challenging than they thought. . . especially with clever cubs like these.

Watching all the animals go to sleep is a lovely way to set the mood for bedtime. The interactive bedtime "Nighty Night" is brought to you from Oscar-Nominee Heidi Wittlinger (2002, best animated short) who put a lot of passion and effort in constructing little sets made of paper and combining them with 2D illustration and animation.
Languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Portuguese.
FEEDBACK FROM APP USERS: "This book finally proves to me that a kids book can be as great electronically as they are on paper. The artwork is stunning, the narration is pitch perfect well suited to its theme. (...) Buy this book, it´s truly art"
