Reviews - What do customers think about Goodnight Moon?
A quiet masterpiece Mar 28, 2007
The beautiful book is so simple, in both words and illustrations, that it is almost stark, but rather that making the book cold, the style simply strips away everything that is extraneous, leaving behind a warmth and tenderness that has now delighted several generations of children.
There are many good children's books and a number of great ones. This one, however, transcends into the realm of indispensible literature for the very young. This is one of a handful of books that one must--absolutely must--not only read but own and cherish.
Great even for babies. Mar 27, 2007
It is very simply written and even little babies like the bright pictures and the sound of your voice.
MUSICAL BOOK Mar 26, 2007
I do not live in States and my native language is not English therefore I had my hesitations buying the book to my kids. One of them 3 ,the other one is 6 years old and they loved the book! Everynight before going to bed I read the book outloud to them and they repeat what I say and they loved this poetic book..I suggest you buy it even if your kids do not know english :)
It's very good, but it isn't "the perfect" anything. Mar 19, 2007
I have a board book copy, and my son likes it because the pictures have tons of detail in them and he likes to show off spotting every last item. He really likes saying goodnight to nobody, and it's fun to hear him say goodnight to the things in Portuguese.
Is it perfect? No, but it doesn't have to be. I'm not sure why it receives so many accolades, but since the book is so old and spans three generations, I strongly suspect nostalgia and projection are more at work here than actual perfection in writing or illustration.
It's a very good book, and it launches my son and I on a laundry list of our own "goodnight this" and "goodnight that" when I turn out the light. My daughter and I will do this someday as well, and perhaps I'll have a different opinion of the book when they're older...
A must have! Mar 17, 2007
Every child on earth should own a copy of this book. It has been a favorite for all three of my sons. It's a classic that is probably the best known among the first books for children. It's a perfect gift for anyone you know having a baby.
