Pete and Sneakers Bath and Bedtime Show is a superbly silly storybook app designed to encourage children to use their imagination while completing bath and bedtime routines. It was created by Erin Davis who has been writing since she could hold a pen. Inspired by the collective works of Dr. Seuss, James Marshall, Audrey Wood and Mo Willems, Erin strives to integrate imaginative, creative, clever and silly components into her Children’s books. Erin’s journalistic work has appeared in a number of publications including Better Living, Multiplicity, KC Parent, KC Baby, and Raising Arizona Kids, and more, she is also a contributing Entertainment writer for McClatchy-Tribune. Pete and Sneakers are two lively and loveable penguins who use their distinct personalities to show children that similar tasks can be completed different ways.

These penguin pals are sure to elicit an encore from your little ones! You can learn more about Pete and Sneakers by reading our developer interview, and you can download Pete and Sneakers [here].
