Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K Familiar objects in the classic story are arranged in alphabetical order and accompanied by upper- and lowercase letters in the original style and palette. Ii In the great green room/Jj Jump over the moon. Letter X appears as the crossed arms of a pole dryer that holds pink mittens from clothespins and Zz Zzzz is accompanied by the line Goodnight noises everywhere. Endpapers show the entire alphabet being investigated by two mice. The book conveys the timeless appeal of the original, and the literacy skill building will appeal to adults.

About the Author

Few writers have been as attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood as Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). A graduate of Hollins College and the progressive Bank Street College of Education, she combined her literary aspirations with the study of child development. Her unique ability to see the world through a child's eyes is unequaled. Her many classic books continue to delight thousands of young listeners and readers year after year.

Muy pocos escritores de literatura infantil han logrado captar las emociones e inquietudes de la niñez como Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Sus numerosos y ya clásicos libros y grabaciones continúan deleitando a lectores y oyentes de todas las edades.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.

Clement Hurd (1908–1988) se graduó de Yale University. Estudió pintura en París en los años 1930 con Fernand Léger, entre otros. Allí fue donde desarrolló su estilo característico, compuesto de colores de fuerte contraste. Hurd estuvo casado con la escritora Edith Thacher Hurd, con quien también creó muchos libros que se convirtieron en favoritos de los niños.

More About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. Even though she died over 45 years ago, her books still sell very well. Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or poem. She thought this made children think harder when they are reading. She wrote all the time. There are many scraps of paper where she quickly wrote down a story idea or a poem. She said she dreamed stories and then had to write them down in the morning before she forgot them. She tried to write the way children wanted to hear a story, which often isn't the same way an adult would tell a story. She also taught illustrators to draw the way a child saw things. One time she gave two puppies to someone who was going to draw a book with that kind of dog. The illustrator painted many pictures one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, the papers he painted on were bare. The puppies had licked all the paint off the paper. Margaret died after surgery for a bursting appendix while in France. She had many friends who still miss her. They say she was a creative genius who made a room come to life with her excitement. Margaret saw herself as something else - a writer of songs and nonsense.

Format: Hardcover
This is a cute book that is at least worth picking up at the library for those little ones who are learning their alphabet. The image of this book is a bit deceiving, by the way. The colors are actually the same as those in Brown's classic "Goodnight Moon".

The alphabet examples are pulled from that book. There's 'Aa Air' and 'Bb Brush'. It continues on more-or-less like that until "Ii" where there's a break and instead of a single word we get a sentence: "Ii in the great green room". "Jj Jump over the moon" and a few other phrases are sprinkled about the rest of the text. They handle 'troublesome X' by asking children to find that shape.

At the end the book repeats the familiar words:

Goodnight stars
Goodnight air
Goodnight noises everywhere
ZZ Zzzz...

A cute book for young Goodnight Moon fanatics. It will provide an opportunity for adults to cover the alphabet with drawings that are familiar.

There are so many ABC books out there, that it's hard to suggest anyone buy this book if Goodnight Moon is not a favorite. Click on the Aardvark and find it at a library near you.

I started this series for my Grandson and am happy that I can find these books in my travels. Love the ABC on this as those are my Grandson's initials. Nicely done stories for little children and love the 'board' books as my grandson goes to his bookcase and pulls out books all day long! These are the best sturdy books in production and great for learning to read as well.
