This gentle bedtime story, which has lulled generations of children to sleep, is the perfect first book to share at bedtime. In a great green room a little bunny is tucked up snugly and safely in bed and is getting ready to say goodnight to all the familiar things in his room, one by one. Margaret Wise Brown's comforting, rhythmical text accompanied by the warmth of Clement Hurd's classic mid-century illustrations make GOODNIGHT MOON a timeless picture book, which is known and loved around the world.
The original family copy was lost before the child who is receiving this was born, so it will be a new adventure for her.

Good night Moon
As fasr as I know my nephew and his wife like the book for their son. I gave it for his first birthday so he can't tell me much. Shipping and condition of book was just fine. Quick and in perfect shape. What more can I say?

Missed It As A Kid
I bought the book after heaing on The Bob Edwards Show that it had been put to music and that most people had had the book as a kid. Somehow, I missed out and had never heard of it. Then come to find out that my kids are reading it to their kids!! It is a good bed time story and actually does seem ageless. The illistrations are cute and following the mouse is one of the things that kids I now read it to like to do. The book was a library book and I like to buy books previously from libraries (and part of the purchase price went to a library). It is in excellent condition. I would recommend this book to young parents or other "kids" who missed out long ago.

Beloved book by several generations
This precious story by Margaret Wise Brown is a classic spanning generations of children for a reason-it is so sweet! The moon is a special icon to children, and night time is a good time to read to them. Naturally, a story about a touchstone is beloved. As a child, I never owned it, but borrowed it from the library bookmobile many times. As a grandmother, I still love it, and read it to my grandchildren often. They love it just as much as I, and it generates a lot of fascinating discussion with them. I highly recommend it for parents, grandparents and children.

Let The Pencil take you on an adventure
The Pencil, by Allan Ahlberg and Bruce Ingman is a simple, yet imaginative book. The Pencil will give children an example for where their imagination can take them. It is refreshing to see a storyline that gives children insight into art and creativity to occupy their time. This book is a prime example that simplicity in writing can be best. The Pencil is a book to be enjoyed by parents, teachers, and children alike.
