Kib & Cuckoo Baku: Kib Can't Sleep is an interactive iPad children's book produced by the Dutch company Publishing Stars. It comes with a choice of six different languages (English, Dutch, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese) and features interactive animation that makes reading aloud a treat for both parent and child.
Set to rhyme, Kib & Cuckoo Baku: Kib Can’t Sleep is the first volume in a series about Kib, a little star who falls asleep with the help of the owl Cuckoo Baku and the star Silver. The series deals with issues that the parents of children from two to seven face every day, such as a child who can’t sleep or doesn’t want to eat or is adjusting to a new brother or sister. The animation brings the characters in the story to life, and there’s a related game to play and pictures to color. Children find all these interactive features easy to operate.
