Perfect bedtime book Apr 15, 2008
A perfect bedtime book. However it does have a little prayer at the end and a couple of illustrations at the end that include angels, so if you don't want that I wouldn't recommend this book. But I was surprised by how much I enjoy reading it and by how much my toddler likes listening to it. Definitely one of our favorites.
sweet and loving book! May 30, 2007
this is a charming book that my daughter loves. simple and sweet.
Nice Old School Book Jun 29, 2006
A nice, simple good night book with no bells and whistles to get the kids active again at bedtime. Recommend Highly.
Better than Good Night Moon Feb 28, 2006
This was a favorite of my daughter's, and she's 42 now! While she loved all the Margaret Wise Brown books, as they came out, this always remained the favorite. It must be in the genes, because the two oldest grandchildren, now out of college, loved it the best, too. And now, the third grandchild, a 5-year-old, is reading it to herself at night! Oddly, while one can find "Good Night Moon" in any book store, "A Child's Goodnight Book" is never there. Until this site, I always had to order it from the publisher. We include it in the new-baby presents we give to all the youngsters we know, and always get rave reviews from the new parents. I think I've ordered at least two dozen copies from this site, since you all came along. Thanks.
Simple and okay Jul 2, 2005
This book is okay, but Margaret Wise Brown has done better, especially Goodnight Moon. I wouldn't put it on my list of must haves.
