Goodnight iPad by Ann Droyd

While it's not my turn to post, I did want to share something that I found last night while out shopping.  I was at The Afternoon - the one in Midtown in Omaha, and I saw a book called Goodnight iPad - a parody of Goodnight Moon.


The book reminded me of some of the posts about the Super Bowl and its relationship to the Culture Industry.

  1. I saw this book at a store a couple of weeks ago! It's obviously tongue and cheek humor, but one of my coworkers in particular actually bought an ipad to take on a road trip with her husband and their two-year-old (for the purpose of the two-year-old's entertainment). I don't have kids, but I have 3 younger siblings (the youngest of which is 6) so I can empathize with the need for distraction and pacification, but I'm not sure how I feel about this use. I know it can be educational in many ways, but I think it's the idea of "keeping the baby distracted" that I don't agree with. Anyway, this was tangent from your point, but it made me think of this scenario!
