All around the house the lights go out, and even the animals in the barn are tired. But who puts them to bed? Who turns out the lights in their stalls? That is the task for small children aged 1-4 years. The bedtime book "Nighty Night!" for iPhone helps children get to know animals interactively while preparing to go to bed. Dog, Pig, Sheep, Duck, Cow, Fish and Chickens moo and bubble, hop and lay eggs, until a kid turns the light out and the animals go to sleep. "Nighty Night!" is the perfect app for a daily go-to-sleep ritual with sweet music and actor Alistair Findlay as a narrator.
