It's not a book for you, it's a book for toddlers. And it's told in a toddler's voice. I knew little children who talked like this, thought like this - it's perfectly normal. These reviewers say it better than I can:

A companion to Good Night, Moon, it's interesting to see the same scenes and objects from a new perspective. I think we even see the same painting on the wall. We also get an idea of what everyday life was like (for people) when the book was first written. Ms. Brown was influenced by the Bank Street methodology of teaching children: it was anti-fantasy and pro-real life as lived by children. ( )

Part of the pleasure in my exploration of children's literature is finding companion books that I never knew existed! My world follows the same baby bunny that is in Goodnight Moon except that we get to explore more of his world. We see his mom and dad going through the usual daytime activities(dad goes to work, mom cooks) and we learn what bunny likes to do with his day. The text sounds like it is actually being spoken by a child and is quite endearing. An activity with listeners could be asking them how they spend their day or what they observe their mommies and/or daddies doing during the day. What makes them feel comfort? What rituals do they cherish the most? Perhaps you could have the children write a "thank you " note to their mom and/or dad for the things that bring them comfort, usually the things that most adults take for granted. ( )

A little boy rabbit goes through his home and his world and thinks of everything he has. He then compares it to his parents and what they have. It has very simple sentences and does repetition which can help struggling readers.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060247983, Hardcover)

For a small bunny, the big world can be boiled down to "My slippers. / My pajamas. / Daddy's pajamas," and "Mother's chair. / My chair. / A low chair. / A high chair. / But certainly my chair." Back in print after more than 30 years, My World by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd is every bit as reassuring and appealing to young children as its more famous companion, Goodnight Moon. Using the same format, this tale features the rabbit family as they go through their day: brushing teeth, eating breakfast, going fishing, reading stories, and climbing into bed. Black-and-white illustrations alternate with full-color scenes depicting the ever-expanding (yet still comfortably contained) boundaries of a child's life. In one image, the young bunny, clad in blue coveralls, hammers happily on his wooden truck, while Daddy, in matching coveralls, works on his own (real) car just outside the garage. Very young fans of the classic Goodnight Moon will delight in recognizing the characters, illustration style, and gentle rhythmic words in this over-50-year-old picture book. For that matter, older fans will be pretty tickled, too! (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie Coulter
