Item description for Goodnight Moon (Learning Language Arts Through Literature) by Margaret Wise Brown & Clement Hurd...
Overview Before going to sleep, a little rabbit says goodnight to all his familiar possessions, as his big, green bedroom slowly darkens, in an anniversary version of the enduring classic. Reissue.
In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room--to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one--he says goodnight.
In this classic of modern children's literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.

<3 May 20, 2010
Book was in almost perfect condition. It was shipped super fast, and I am extremely pleased with it. My daughter was so excited to get a new book and it will make a wonderful keepsake to pass down to her kids someday. Always a wonderful bedtime story and easy for younger children to further their growing interests in reading.
Review by worldoflil.com May 19, 2010
A companion to the 'Going to Bed Book' - this is another must have if you have, like me, a child who never wants to go to sleep. I don't think I'm alone there. While the former is great at prepping kids to do the things they need to do before bed, this is great to read to them (or with them as they try to find items throughout the book) as they drift off to sleep. I'm sure if you're reading this you have kids - or are looking for a gift for someone with kids - this is a must have!
didn't really catch his attention Apr 16, 2010
cute book...great pics...but it didn't catch my 5 month olds attention...maybe later :)...still recommend....son loves Sandra Boynton's "Going to bed book"....probably cause I've been reading that one to him since he was 1 week old :).
Goodnight Moon Mar 23, 2010
I've been giving Goodnight Moon as a gift to newborns and young children for about 25 years now and never met a child or parent who didn't love it. It's an all time classic children's book and has won a many awards in the children's book categories. It's an all time favorite and simply an imaginative, wonderful, and compelling read for a child. Diseptively simple: saying Good Night to familiar objects page after page. In no time at all, the child chimes in with her/his goodnight. A pure classic.
A Real Classic Mar 12, 2010
As a bedtime story, this children's book is universally loved for it's sheer simplicity. A perfect read to your baby book and they'll soon be reading for themselves. Colorful illustrations and easy to read words have made this a classic for years. A timeless book with broad appeal.
