Encourage your family to put their phones to bed with help from Thrive Global and Audible

Goodnight Moon, Margaret Wise Brown’s 1947 masterpiece, is an undisputed classic of children’s literature. Now, it has inspired Arianna Huffington to record her own version, updated for our age of technology addiction: Goodnight Smartphone.

The timely tale, narrated by Arianna, encourages listeners of all ages to say goodnight to their devices before they go to sleep:

Goodnight kittens. Goodnight emails unwritten. Goodnight clocks. Goodnight in-box.

Thrive Global’s Goodnight Smartphone will be available for free download on Audible, the world’s largest producer of downloadable audiobooks, in January.
