Awesome calming book especially for babies and younger children. Good book to read during rest time to infants and toddlers if in a Daycare setting.

This is a classic children's book. Kids, and adults, will love it. It's a simple bedtime story with great rhythm, illustrations, and rhyme, so kids have an easy time following along. I'd recommend for children age 3-9.

I liked this book, and think it is a great bedtime story. The illustrations are unique and very sweet in nature. The plot is paced well, as the bunny says good night to all the different things in his room. The language is clear and simple. The plot is organized and creates a great children's story. ( )

Book description
Goodnight Moon is a story about a little rabbit who says "goodnight" to every item in his home. These items include a pair of mittens, a young mouse, a comb, and a bowl full of mush. Illustrations are very simple; many of them are black and white drawings. The book is very short, but perfect for a bedtime story.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0694003611, Board book)

Perhaps the perfect children's bedtime book, Goodnight Moon is a short poem of goodnight wishes from a young rabbit preparing for--or attempting to postpone--his own slumber. He says goodnight to every object in sight and within earshot, including the "quiet old lady whispering hush." Clement Hurd's illustrations are simple and effective, alternating between small ink drawings and wide, brightly colored views of the little rabbit's room.

Finding all of the items mentioned throughout the book within the pictures is a good bedtime activity--a reappearing little mouse is particularly pesky. By the end of the little rabbit's goodnight poem, the story has quieted to a whisper, and the drawings have darkened with nightfall. As you turn the last page, you can expect a sleepy smile and at least a yawn or two. (Picture book)

Goodnight to each of the objects in the great green room: goodnight chairs, goodnight comb, goodnight air. On board pages.
