about this item

Simple, warm illustrations and a gentle rhyming text combine to tell the story of a sleepy bunny saying goodnight to all the things he can see and hear as he drifts off to sleep. A bright, full moon shines into a green room with a red floor, where all sorts of objects and creatures dwell, including two pictures, a fireplace, kittens, a toy house, and even an old lady knitting. Tucked into bed, the little rabbit slowly succumbs to sleep after saying goodnight to everything and everyone, from a bowl of mush to the twinkling stars. Alternating double-page, full-color paintings with single-page, B&W spot paintings, this classic bedtime tale has lulled countless children to sleep since it was first published in 1947. Sharp-eyed readers can search for the little mouse hiding within each of the color illustrations and note how, as this bedtime tale progresses, the illustrations grow subtly darker, setting the stage for sleep.
Before going to sleep, a little rabbit says goodnight to all his familiar possessions, as his big, green bedroom slowly darkens

This was my favorite book when I was little, and I just bought it for a friend who's due with her first little girl next week. This version is just as I remember it, except in a perfect baby/toddler-friendly version.

Both of my girls (3 and 1) love this book! As a matter of fact, I bought the boardbook version, because the paperback just wasn't holding up under the test of time! A must for every household!

Love this book and my grandson picks it as the book to read him whenever I visit. He wants to hear it over and over. That is why I bought it for my great nephew's baby shower.

I read this book to my children, who loved it. My first grandchild is due in two months, and I gave Goodnight Moon to my daughter-in-law at her baby shower. I look forward to reading it to the baby. It's a classic.
