Margaret Wise Brown writes about a bunny saying goodnight to various objects and creatures before drifting off to sleep. Brown did this because she believed that children would like to see realistic objects and understand things of the real world. This idea came from a dream and I believe that this book is very creative in the sense that it doesn't lose the fictional characters or setting but the objects are real and easy for young children to understand.

This is such a classic story that I never get tired of reading it. From the one line sentences to the great visuals and pictures, the author does a great job at putting little one’s to sleep and it will never cease to not be a classic. ( )

Classic childrens book about a bunny who says good night to various objects in their room before they go to sleep. It is repetative and soothing and I remember reading this book as a child. The photos are colorful and cartoony. ( )

Classic book about saying goodnight to different things (mom doesn't totally get why this is a classic), but Mx loved this book as a toddler and Ms liked it well enough.
