Getting young kids to go to bed can be a struggle sometimes, but two Carroll County moms are hoping to change that.

Carroll County mom Amanda Lee and friend Shante Willis wrote a book with an animated online twist that they hope will be both entertaining and helpful.

“Oakley and Ivan and the All-Nighter” is an interactive bedtime experience. Ivan is a little boy who makes a wish to stay up all night and in swoops a magical owl named Oakley who takes him on an adventure.

“But in the end, he learns that he wants to go back home because he needs rest,” Lee said.

“That’s basically what we want kids to know, right?” Willis said.

Lee and Willis, who are both attorneys who met in law school years ago, each started families and came up with the story as a way to get their kids to go to sleep when they were little.

“Most parents can relate to bedtime as a struggle, for both kids and parents alike, and so we wanted to do something that made it easier,” Lee said.

“We knew that the book had to have a song and a dance because our kids love singing and dancing,” Willis said. “So, we put it all together and our kids loved it, so we knew we had something special.”

Families can read the book together and go online to watch the videos. And although it just launched in March, the new authors are getting rave reviews from their target audience.

“It’s so amazing, it’s what we wanted when we put this out there,” Lee said.

“Kids need something to make bedtime a little bit more fun. We think, if kids look forward to bedtime, that’s a success,” Willis said.
