Help your child become a super sleeper using two free children’s apps from the AASM. Download the fun, interactive apps for your iPad, Kindle Fire or Android tablet.

“I See the Animals Sleeping” and “The Animals Sleep” bring children on a journey around the world. They’ll travel from the arctic tundra to the tropical rainforest. Along the way kids will learn about the diverse sleep habits and habitats of animals.



Children will realize that sleep is important for animals – and kids too! They’ll also see that a cozy bedroom is the perfect sleep environment for them.

Each app has audio settings that allow you to choose the reading format. Young children will enjoy listening to the narrated story. Early readers can read and explore at their own pace. The vibrant pictures are brought to life with animal and nature sounds.

The AASM recommends sharing the apps with children during the daytime for educational enjoyment and interaction. Special features make learning fun for kids. Each app includes pop-up facts, a coloring book, puzzle, quiz and matching game.

Download the apps today from the App Store, Google Play or Amazon.

The apps are based on two beautifully illustrated picture books from the AASM. Snuggle up and read these books with your child as part of a relaxing bedtime routine. You can buy I See the Animals Sleeping: A Bedtime Story and The Animals Sleep: A Bedtime Book of Biomes on Amazon.

A new study provides a timely reminder that a consistent bedtime is important for kids. Results show that children with irregular bedtimes are more likely to have behavioral problems.

Use the AASM apps and books to help your child learn that bedtime is the best time of the day!

    Would it be possible to have a hard copy for guest at our hotels in the pantanal wetlands of Brazil that might want to read them to fall a sleep?
    thanks
