[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Polk Street Press, a new independent publisher, is excited to announce the release of Goodnight Safari for the iPad. Children are at the center of the story as they help the giraffe eat her dinner, the monkey climb to bed, and the elephant kiss goodnight. Simple vocabulary and intuitive interactivity will engage young children while building their comfort with nighttime preparations. A perfect bedtime or story time accompaniment for children ages 2-4.
Children help the animals prepare for bedtime through interactive scenes.
Toddlers can tap the safari animals to help them get ready for bed, while older children will more fully explore each scene.
Engaging story captures and holds the attention of young children.
With read along and read alone settings, children can build early literacy skills or follow along to discover safari animal favorites - from striped zebras to golden lions.
Beautiful textured artwork by Luciana Navarro Powell invites curious fingers.
Vibrant illustrations bring the African savanna to life in the hands of your child. Discover lesser-known safari animals - leopard tortoises and monitor lizards - all gorgeously illustrated by Powell.
"By combining exotic safari animals with the familiar routine of bedtime, we have created a safe place for toddlers and pre-schoolers to explore," says Libby Putman, founder. "They love taking charge of feeding and bathing the baby animals, and parents will love the soothing narration as children wind down for bedtime." Goodnight Safari follows the critically-acclaimed 12 Days of Christmas - Polk Street Press Singalong iPad app released by Polk Street Press in December 2011.
