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."]]>

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.
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.
