Apple on Thursday named “Nighty Night Circus” its featured App of the Week in the App Store. This means for the next 7 days, you will be able to download the popular bedtime story and lullaby app for kids for free—saving you a solid $3.

The sequel to Apple’s 2012 App of the Year, Nighty Night!, Nighty Night Circus allows children to play with a variety of circus animals and tuck them in as they go to sleep. The app features beautiful imagery, great narration and lullaby music.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

From the creators of family favorite Night Night! comes a delightful addition to any child’s bedtime routine. Backed by gorgeous imagery and soothing narration, this circus-themed app lets kids play with a lion, a seal, and other animals, then tuck each one in. It’s a fun, gentle way to encourage little ones to relax and go to sleep.

And here’s a video of the app in action:

Obviously this app is geared towards parents of young children, but even those who don’t have kids yet are encouraged to grab this while it’s free for future usage. The Nighty Night apps are very well done and come highly recommended.

You can find Nighty Night Circus for both iPhone and iPad in the App Store for free.
