From the Inside Flap
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.

My complaint and three stars is for Good Night Moon. (It's a simple rhyme story that goes through the room and says good night to all the objects. Very cute story.) The story begins with the light on, and then in the last half of the book the light turns off. In this particular set, the light off pages are very, very dark. It's very difficult to see the images on these pages even in normal light, and would be impossible under low light. Also, any child/adult with vision problems might not be able to see any of the detail at all, even in normal light.
The picture was taken under a skylight and compares the book from this set (left) to the book I was replacing (right). Both are board books.
We previously had a board book for Good Night Moon that didn't have this issue, so I think perhaps we simply ended up with a badly printed one. (Especially as Runaway Bunny did not have this issue.) I still highly recommend both stories, but I will have to replace the one book.
Nice book for children until two years old to be read before going to bed, simple, cozy and very good for observation,
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.

Goodnight Moon ist aus meiner Sicht etwas langweilig, für kleine Kinder aber echt ok. Die Zeichnungen gefallen mir allerdings nicht.
Richtig schlimm finde ich das runaway bunny. Der kleine Hase möchte weglaufen und denkt sich dafür viele verschiedene Strategien aus. Jede klar denkende liebevolle Mutter würde das Kind fragen was denn los ist, wieso es denn wegwolle etc. Nicht aber hier. Die Botschaft des Buches ist, egal was du tust, du entkommst mir nicht! Zusammen mit den teilweise echt schrecklichen Zeichnungen ist das für mich echt ein Alptraumbuch.
Wirklich schön sind im Gegensatz dazu die Bücher von Dr. Seuss
