Best apps for helping children build routines

Bo’s Bedtime Story, Dr. Panda’s Hospital, and more

Bo’s Bedtime Story stars a baby giraffe who makes “a great going-to-bed buddy.” Your child gets to help Bo with such tasks as putting away toys and getting into pajamas. ($1 for iPhone and Android; $2 for iPad)

The Going to Bed Book app is based on a classic Sandra Boynton picture book and is like a sillier, rhyming version of Bo’s Bedtime Story. Kids help a group of animals bathe, brush their teeth, and do pre-bedtime exercises. ($4 for iOS; $5 for Android)

Dr. Panda’s Hospital “makes doctor visits less scary.” Youngsters help a veterinarian by performing tasks such as measuring a puppy’s blood pressure and putting drops in a bear’s eye. ($2 for iOS and Android)
