So simple, yet simply perfect.

Does anyone actually read this book silently to themselves? It demands to be spoken. ( )

This cook is a nice book for ending the day and winding down. It says goodnight to the objects that are inside the room in the story and to the outside. The rhyming aspect of the book is relaxing making this book a perfect nighttime read for a child. A relaxing and calming book for a class that students can read with the teacher. ( )

My oldest sons favorite bed-time book.
"In the great green room there was a telephone, and a red balloon and a picture of a cow jumping over the room..." ( )

I absolutely love this book for all it's simplicity. The illustrations allow for readers to stay engaged by focusing on different aspects of the room at different times and always trying to locate the ever moving mouse. It is a simple bedtime story describing and saying goodnight to everything in the room from a brush to a little old lady to a cow jumping over the moon in a picture frame. The rhyming structure is very easy to follow and would be great for emerging readers. ( )

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.
