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.

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.

One of the most beloved books of all time, Goodnight Moon is a must for every bookshelf and a time-honored gift for baby showers and other special events.

I read this for the "Written By A Female Author" part of my 2020 reading challenge. It was my first time reading it, and I thought it was perfect. It's soft and gentle and rhymed and it would be easy to read at bedtime and I can see children loving it. No wonder it's a classic.

I never had much of a chance to read goodnight moon when i was younger, and if i did i couldn't remember it, but this book made my heart feel warm and brought me to feel as if i was a little girl again. I loved having the little book in my arms, and still very much enjoyed the simple read. It is like childhood wrapped in a book.

A total classic.

I've never met a kid who didn't like this book. I read this during Family Storytime and even the most rambunctious toddlers stopped their fidgeting long enough to listen all the way through. The board book version of this classic makes a great baby shower gift.
