Nighty Night! (best free Android apps for kids)
The first thing you should do when you get your new tablet, is load it full of books. So much learning happens when a book is read to a child, and all of the common core subjects can be covered in a simple story such as this one. As parents, we love stories that model behaviour we want our children to emulate. Stories about children or animals going to sleep are always a favourite (for parents) at night time, and this is no exception. Your child will also love the routine of putting the animals to sleep before s/he has the light switch off.

What's free: seven animals
What's not free: another six animals
Nighty Night is not so much a story as an interactive picture book, designed to help develop a sleep association for your child at bedtime. Each animal performs various actions upon tapping, and will automatically go to sleep when the light is switched off in that area. There are seven different animals to put to bed before the narrator notices that the reader is still awake and needs to turn off the light. You will not be disappointed with this addition to your virtual bookshelf.
"Nighty Night!" is the perfect App for a daily go-to-sleep ritual with sweet music and elegant narration.
This App has been downloaded over 2 Million times and is a great success worldwide!
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"
