Goodnight moon is a classic overall book. I enjoyed it as a child and learned so much from it. I will be using this and sharing it with children someday. ( )

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (1991)

It is hard to see how any improvement could be made to this classic, simple, bed-time story-poem.
One of those favorites committed to memory while reading to my own five babies.

Sob. A classic. ( )

I can believe that the repetition in this book is soothing and helps children drift off. It is mindless and easy for parents to memorize so that they don't have to pay much attention as they read it. ( )

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.
