Goodnight Moon [With 4 Paperbacks] (Over the Moon #2)
In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room--to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one--he says goodnight.
In this classic of modern children's literature, beloved by...more

Man has created death.”

Or is that that the narrator says goodnight to "nobody," that as we go outside her room, we see only stars - no people, no cities. It's as if this little bunny is the last one on earth, and is being watched by some robotic nanny bunny.

Just as mothers and their babes in arms have the uncanny ability to synchronize their heartbeats by a single loving glance, the lyrical cadence and soothing, repetitive text makes reading Goodnight Moon a compulsive act of gentle rocking motion, lulling the reader into an involuntary ebb and flow. The words of the bedtime story fall from the lips as a lullaby; it is imp ...more

This wasn't a book I read as a child, but it was one of the first books we got for our kiddo's collection. At first, I failed to see the point. The illustrations are bright, but nothing special. The story is the standard "time for bed" thing you see in a lot of picture books.
When our ...more
How’d you guess?
Goodnight Moon – that boldly, brightly illustrated piece of whimsicality – now reposes in my board book collection. It would be hard to name another read aloud that rivals it in popularity [apart from Dr. Seuss’s books, of course]. And the funny thing is, the more I come to appreciate deft artistry in adult fiction, the m ...more

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
In the great green room
There was a telephone
And a red balloon
And a picture of the cow jumping over the moon
And there were three little bears sitting on chairs
And two little kittens
And a pair of mittens
And a little toy house
And a young mouse
And a comb and a brush and a bowl full of mush
And a quiet old lady who was whispering “hush”
This book is supposed to be one of the epic among children and I can totally see why.
The book just has some sweet things of the kids room and a rhyme to make them go to sleep. Even when I read it after a stretch nap of 2 hours, felt a kind of calmness inside.
Now will read another of it's parody [Book: Goodnight Goon]

Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or p ...more
