Editorial Reviews

Goodnight Moon and Other Sleepytime Tales (DVD)

Everybody's favorite bedtime story, "Goodnight Moon" comes to life on DVD for the very first time. Along with other beloved animated tales and lullabies, children and stars come together in a delightful exploration of the nighttime world. Children offer wise and witty reflections on a host of sleepytime topics, from the comfort of "blankies" to Native American dreamcatchers, from monsters and nightmares to the mysteries of dreamland. Susan Sarandon narrates "Goodnight Moon," Tony Bennett sings the swing classic "Hit the Road to Dreamland," Lauryn Hill lends a new rhythm to the rhyme "Hush, Little Baby," the many voices of Billy Crystal bring "There's a Nightmare in My Closet" to animated life, Natalie Coletells the tale of Faith Ringgold's "Tar Beach," Aaron Neville sings "Brahms Lullaby" and Patti LaBelle performs "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."

This is one of my favorite videos belonging to my kids (ages 4 and 2). I was more than happy to sit and watch this video with them every time they've wanted to watch it dropping whatever it is I was doing at the time! The kids in the video are so sweet, funny and insightful and the animation is creative and wonderful! It's a real treat to see Goodnight Moon come to life and the other selections (i.e. Tar Beach, Nightmare In My Closet) are perfect choices and new favorites. The star cast of Susan Sarandon, Billy Crystal, Lauryn Hill, etc. is an added bonus. I can't recommend this video enough. A definite bedtime -- or anytime treat!

They should make more videos like this. Great narration and fantastic music make this a wonderful "wind-down" video for little ones. My daughter(2yrs.)loves seeing the familiar images from Goodnight Moon and the rest of the video is just as good. We never tire of this video and where did they find the beautiful children in the interviews? If you have a child, this is a great one to have. It also makes a great gift!

With so much worthless drivel marketed towards children it's refreshing to find high quality material to add to your video collection. Thank you to producer/director Amy Schatz for putting together this compilation. What a joy it is to hear diverse music, classic children's literature and endearing tales of bedtime from a child's point of view all in one video. The animation is as artful as it is diverse. One caution, if you have a sensitive or highly imaginative toddler, the"Nightmare In My Closet" story may not be your best bet RIGHT before bedtime. It's only about three minutes long and we fast forward through it sometimes. I am teacher so I try to choose my video and print material carefully. This video will expose your child to quality literature and, thanks to the celebrity voices, will be highly entertaining to parents too. "Goodnight Moon..." will be my standard gift from now on.

My girls love this DVD. I have put them to bed by reciting Goodnight Moon their entire lives and seeing it on the "big screen" was both exciting and comforting. The other stories are also wonderful and I am glad to have my children hear them. Susan Sarandon's voice is calming and melodic. It uses the original illustrations from the books (not animated) which are beautiful.

My only complaint is that it is a very New York movie with the children who are interviewed obviously New York centered. One child mentions Scarsdale which promted a lot of questions. I wish it had been more location neutral, actually I could have done without the children interviews at all, but the girls don't mind them. In fact, they laugh at the kids jokes and it has sparked very in depth conversations about topics (like death, poverty, and handicaps) that I probably would have avoided for a few more years.

I have found that this is a excellent DVD for the car. It is both calming and engaging. I don't mind listening to it. All in all it is really great.

I had seen this on HBO awhile back and showed it to my then 8 month old daughter. It put her right to sleep every time. It is a great group of classics all on one video with an amazing group of singers and actors lending their voices. I recommend this movie for everyone - you can't go wrong with this one!

For the first time ever there is a video that I want to actually watch with my children. Amy Schatz, the ARTIST that directed this work of art, must be recognized and awarded. I have never seen or heard anything so delicate and beautiful. From the animation to the stories that are retold in a new fashion, I RECOMMEND Goodnight Moon & Other Sleepytime Tales to everyone...young, old, male or female....This is a must buy!

My two year old girls LOVE this video. They call it the "dreams" video or the "sleepy" video. We watch very little tv in our house, but this is one that we do not mind our children watching. It is the sweetest, nicest video I have ever seen.

There is also a great collection of other books that are shown on the video - I like the multicultural selection of books.

I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is beautiful.
