Mini Monday: Goes old school.

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, Clement Hurd
32 pages
Published July 3rd 2007 by HarperFestival
(first published 1947)

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 on chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one -- the little bunny says goodnight.

In this classic of children's literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.

Man what a classic. I remember reading this when I was young.

My son brought this home from the library from his school. It’s such a simple children’s bedtime story. Nothing complicated happens, pretty much one sentence pages.

We made it a little fun by having my children point out where the things were in the room that the bunny was saying goodnight to. They liked that.

If you have never read this, then holy cow where have you been? I highly recommend it. I am actually shocked that we don’t own a copy of this!
