Reviews - What do customers think about Goodnight Moon Lap Edition?
Good might moon Jun 9, 2008
I first purchased this book 36 years ago for my son; recently bought this new copy for my future grandson--I'm hoping it will be his favorite as it was his father's. It is such a delightful story and a great nightime read before bed.
Not sure about all the hype Jun 3, 2008
I got this based on the positive reviews...the sheer number of them. It is OK but I don't like the fact that there are some black and white pages and some coloured. The pictures also are small and don't really grab me. My baby is still only 5 mths old so I will see if maybe this is just an adult thing. I prefer for going to bed time 'the going to bed book.'
My toddler daughter smiles listening to it May 21, 2008
It is a classic bedtime story book. It is short and simple, yet very young kids like it. Reading it to my toddler daughter is like reading a poem. I started on this book when my daughter was almost 1 year old. It was a bit late, she should have started on it earlier. She loves it. My daughter always sits on my lap when I read the book. She would turn her head around to smile at me everytime I read through a particular part of the story. My daughter is now 15 months, everytime when I pick up this book and starts to read to her, she would start to suck her thumb and know that it is time to sleep. At this moment, she likes this book the most among other story books.
Every Child Facility Should Have This Book............ May 20, 2008
I had a pleasure to read this to a preschooler, or two, finding this story intriguing. Young children may handle this book better, because of its short, and the pictures are eye catching!
great classic, a must for every kid May 20, 2008
I bought this book together with Runaway Bunny. My daugther fell in love with Good Night Moon only. She loves looking for little mouse and loves to look at the nice illustrations and listen to lovely rhymes. At the end, we say good night to things in her room as well. What I wish is maybe to have all ilustrations in color (some are in black and white). But overall, this is lovely book, strongly recommend it.
