If you have kids and love books, you've probably seen a bear carrying a candle on the spines of some of your favorite titles. That bear represents Candlewick Press and their sister company in the UK, Walker Books; together they publish wonderful books, stories and designs that highlight why digital media is a complement to, and not a replacement for, good old-fashioned paper. Candlewick is the home of Guess How Much I Love You, I Want My Hat Back, and Flora and Ulysses, which won the Newbery Medal in 2014. Their new imprint, Candlewick Entertainment, is home to our very first physical product, a lift-the-flaps board book version of Peekaboo Barn. We're honored it's the first book Candlewick has published based on an app, and even more honored to be work with another fiercely independent, employee-owned, author- and illustrator-driven, kid-centric company.
Night & Day Studios is proud to join the ranks of distinguished authors with the immortal word of "Moo!" The Peekaboo board book, a flip open adventure that allows toddlers and grown-ups to match animals with their sounds is available August 5th, 2014. Written by Nat Sims and illustrated by Nathan Tabor, the Peekaboo Barn book lets children play with the popular barnyard friends in a new, exciting way. Available for order now, the book comes with a free download of the Peekaboo Barn app, which Apple has listed in the Top 25 Education apps for more than five years.

There are so many exciting things going on right now, we decided to re-launch our blog to share with our friends. Besides joining with new partners like BabyLit™, Highlights for Children, and Sesame Workshop, we are branching into new territories with our original apps. This blog will provide news on upcoming products, like our Peekaboo Barn board book, the upcoming Farm Day app, and more exciting adventures coming soon.
We will also review and discuss some of our favorite things for kids: books, movies, toys, and apps that we like and recommend. There will be insights into the creative and developmental process that a Night & Day Studios app goes through, a weekly playlist of music we’re listening to in the office, and developing stories we find notable for families with kids.
