"Goodnight Moon" is a favorite of many parents. My mother loved it and bought it for my children. It is basically the story of a young bunny saying goodnight to... well, anything he can think of. He says "goodnight" to everything he can hear or views with any importance.
It is a good book for new readers and a great bedtime story. It attempts to take the child, or children, through the process so they do not have to repeat it themselves. Extremely easy to understand, this book is good for all ages, and would be a great classroom read for pre-kindergarten through first or second grade.

This is a story of a rabbit and his goodnight ritual of saying goodnight to everything he can see. He ends by saying "Goodnight noises everywhere" then falls asleep. ( )

Goodnight Moon is a bedtime story written by Margaret Wise Brown. Brown is an American author of children's literature. The story is told as a poem about a little bunny who is getting ready for bed and performing his own bedtime rituals. This book is great to use with younger children specifically where nap time may be relevant. It teaches the significance of traditions in families such as bedtime rituals that are important to many children. ( )

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)
