Quality

Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighty Night sets a tranquil tone, perfect for sleep or calming a child. Many good quality design elements come together to make this happen. Calming colors are incorporated into the graphics and text, the Twinkle Twinkle lullaby is played softly in the background and the soothing voice of the narrator are just a few examples. Music can be muted.

Page arrows and a home button are the only navigation features available in the book. The option to resume the story where you left off is another nice navigational feature that has been included in the app. The ability to choose a specific page from a page index would be a great addition.

The narrated option for enjoying the story is ideal for those times when you choose not to read the story yourself. The ability to repeat the narration, by touching a button or the text on the page, and the highlighting of text during narration are two important features missing from this ebook; especially one in this price range.

It is amazing how quickly young users pick up on how to use an app; users of all ages will find Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighty Night easy to use.

Education

The reader finds themselves peeking in on Mom, Dad, brother Billy and sister Sarita all fast asleep, but then notice a light on in the playroom where all of their playroom friends have not fallen off to sleep. Your child will have the pleasure of handing out dream stars to each of the friends, the last star being saved for your little one.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighty Night includes two options for enjoying the story; read to me and read myself. The narrated option is enjoyable with the narrator’s voice adding nicely to the overall soothing feeling and the app allows time for the light interactivity as the user chooses when to advance to the next page.

An option to record your own narration of the story would be a bonus in many ways. Beginning readers love to hear themselves read and parents like to have the ability to customize the story just as much as kids like hearing their parent’s voice.

Providing text highlighting is a benefit to beginning readers. Offering this feature as an option in the narrated version of the story is ideal.

Entertainment

This delightful story is perfect for quiet times like nap or bed. Light interactivity found throughout the book keeps the reader engaged. The lullaby and adorable characters draw the user into the story, too, as does saving the last dream star for the reader.

An endless rendition of the Twinkle Twinkle Little Star lullaby is the special feature at the end of the story. Be sure to change your screen settings, in your device settings, so your screen does not “go to sleep” before the child does.

Value

Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighty Night is a delight regardless of which device it is being used on. This is a universal app parents of young children may want to keep at hand.

Adding common ebook features such as a page index, text highlighting and record your own voice would provide families the best value.

Child Friendliness

Our favorite ebooks are those that are not only enjoyable, but also child-safe. Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighty Night does not disappoint. Parents will not need to worry about their child accessing links for additional apps, social media or in-app purchases.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighty Night is an ideal book for bedtime. This sweet, soothing read sets the right tone for sleep.
