Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown, has just celebrated its 60th year in publication. It is read by more children today than ever and is now considered a classic.
This book is about a little rabbit getting ready for bed, who says goodnight to everything in his room. A comb, a brush, mittens, and kittens are only a few of the things pictured that little bunny says goodnight to. My daughter loves this book, probably because she loves doing the same thing. She also enjoys finding the little mouse that is hiding on each and every page.
This book has bright, colorful illustrations by Clement Hurd (if you look hard, you can find one of his Runaway Bunny paintings on the wall of bunny's room). We have the board book version and it has held up through many many readings. I highly recommend this book for kids as young as toddlers.
