My World Jun 2, 2008
This is a great companion to Goodnight Moon. My 3-year old loves that the little bunny is in another book.
Just stick with Goodnight moon Jun 2, 2008
I was a bit disappointed with this one. It's from the author of Goodnight Moon, which I have to admit is far, far better. This book doesn't really have much of a flow to it and is really choppy. It doesn't even rhyme in some places. Anyway, my daughter really disliked this book and I recommend just sticking Goodnight Moon.
My World childrens' book Feb 21, 2008
I did not actually see the book - I had it sent to my daughter for my grandaughter, but she was very pleased with it and was planning to order it herself anyway, so it was a nice surprise as well.
A bit of a let down Jan 17, 2007
Be warned, this is not a repeat of Goonight Moon.
I guess it is hard to duplicate a masterpiece.
Still this book is an enjoyable bedtime story regarding the simple life of our favorite bunny family circa the 1930s-40s. The illustrations and writing to not compare to the orignal, but there is not much out there in children's literature which can. Still this is above average storytelling and my children enjoy it and that is all that really matters.
Disappointing Sequel Jan 9, 2007
This little book was touted as the sequel to the classic "Goodnight Moon" by the same author and illustrator. While this book is all right, it does not reach the quality of prose of the original. Nor are the illustrations as detailed and interesting. I especially missed hunting for the mouse on every page.
