Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Two favorites from one of the world's best-loved creative teams--Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd--are collected in a sweet little board-book gift box. The Runaway Bunny and Goodnight Moon are the quintessential children's bedtime books, adored for generations by sleepy tots and their parents. In this gift edition, the two volumes are tucked snugly into a sturdy cardboard sleeve, illustrated on each side with the familiar book covers. No nursery bookshelf--or bedside table--is complete without a copy of each of these all-time classics. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover

Goodnight Moon

In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room -- to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one -- he says goodnight.

In this classic of modern children's literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.

The Runaway Bunny

Clement Hurd redrew some of his pictures for this new edition of the profoundly comforting story of a bunny's imaginary game of hide-and-seek and the lovingly steadfast mother who finds him every time.

This book really captures my twins' attention. I've been reading it to them since they were about 5 months old (they're now 10 months old), and they still listen and look at the pages with interest. Love the detail in the illustrations, too.

Goodnight Moon is just a classic, beautiful, lyrical, children't book. Definitely my grandchildren's favorite book. So I bought this as a baby gift. But this book is tiny, not the big colorful one that my grandchildren and I leaf through every time they visit. It is just 4" square, and on that thick cardboard stock. The "real" one is like 8" X 15". I was VERY disappointed. :-(

This was bought for my cousin's baby who is now 6 months old. This is a board book which means it can handle being tugged at which is something babies love to do to books! This is a really nice beginner book and I think it's perfect for even being the FIRST book shown to a baby.

I got the gift set which came with two books of the same size. These books are rather small and that's a good thing! It's the perfect size for a baby to hold on to and so far I haven't heard any reports of the baby ripping it apart.

I really recommend this to anyone with a baby. I think it's a great gift set to be given and it's a timeless and classic story.

I gave my grandson these two books a while ago. I believed he was around two years old. He loved "Good night moon". I used to read it to him before going to bed and I explained every detail in the pictures. After reading it he used to pass the pages back and forth and looked at the pictures. I explained to him about all the objects found in the bedroom and in that way he learnt new words. Sometimes he turned out the pages and he himself named almost all the objects. He loved round shapes and the first thing he recognized was the moon. Then we compared the differences between the two pictures of the bedroom. I have to confess that my first impression was that the book was very simple, but then I realized how much this book -text and pictures- attracted him. The. colours of the bedroom with deemed lights I believe entice to sleep.
Nice book for children until two years old to be read before going to bed, simple, cozy and very good for observation,

My little granddaughter and I spent much time reading this story. It is a dear classic, and very interesting for a young beginning devotee of books. Now, that my granddaughter is in school, and so much more sophisticated, the age of 6, I remember this story with great fondness, and I've bought it recently for another tiny little one. I hope he loves it as much as we did. If you've not met the script--it goes over a litany of things to tell goodnight, including the moon. It is not based in reality, but flies off, to a lovely, soothing imaginative realm, where a room is filled with creative objects: In the great green room
There was a telephone
And a red balloon
And a picture of the
cow jumping over the moon.....the rhyming litany goes on, to tell all the objects goodnight. The repetitiveness is appropriate as an earliest intro to bedtime stories.

Who hasn't read Goodnight Moon to their children? This collection gave me an opportunity to share this wonderful story with my new grand-daughter. It was a reminder of the many nights her dad and I would read this together, searching for the little mouse on each page. The Runaway Rabbit is a perfect example of the depth of a mother's love. Nice gift to honor new parents. The only downside was that I thought the books were a little too small (roughly 6" x 6"), but they are made from hard storyboard so they will definitely last.

Absolutely love these books. I started reading them to my baby when he was 2 months old, and a moth later now, he is starting to really look at the pictures. He already knows that when we read these books, it's bedtime.

I only wish "My World" came with these two books as a package.

Two wonderful children's books in a nice case. Pages are hard and durable for young children, and these stories are timeless. Every household should have them. My grandson who just turned 13 still quotes lines from this book when appropriate situations, such as a lunar eclipse, arise. "Goodnight, Moon…" Memories like those created from many readings of books like these live forever.
