Perhaps the perfect children's bedtime book, Goodnight Moon is a short poem of goodnight wishes from a young rabbit preparing for--or attempting to postpone--his own slumber. He says goodnight to every object in sight and within earshot, including the "quiet old lady whispering hush." Clement Hurd's illustrations are simple and effective, alternating between small ink drawings and wide, brightly colored views of the little rabbit's room.
Finding all of the items mentioned throughout the book within the pictures is a good bedtime activity--a reappearing little mouse is particularly pesky. By the end of the little rabbit's goodnight poem, the story has quieted to a whisper, and the drawings have darkened with nightfall. As you turn the last page, you can expect a sleepy smile and at least a yawn or two. (Picture book)

This is very short and much beyond the age of a five year old, but it is perfect as words are being learned for the first time at ages 2 and 3. It is being sent to my great nephew, (the one who got the Cloud b Twilight Constellation Night Light, Sea Turtle for Christmas).
I admit it is even better than "Barney Swallows a Whiny Kid and is Shot Dead," a book I wrote thirty years ago for a demonic little child that has yet to be published.
Pleasant dreams, David Lysander.
Uncle Milton Moon In My Room
After that, I went and tried to read it to my youngest daughter and guess what? She fell asleep halfway through! It's so boring that it put a 6 month old to sleep. What a ripoff!
Finally, I read it to my 3 year old daughter, and she was more impressed by my The Mountain Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee! In a moment of genius, I replaced the word "Goodnight" with "Three Wolf" in the story, and it was like a flock of angels came down and ripped an awesome power chord- rocking my daughter to sleep.
Pay close attention to this one as you read it to the wee ones. The book will actually grow on you the more you read it. It is one of the most smoothing of bedtime books I have ever read.
And it is not just the rhyming of the words in this work that make it special. Pay very, very close attention to the art work in this one. Everything takes place in only one room. The color scheme is at first glance quite simply with - we have a bunny and a room and the room. The author and the artist, Clement Hurd have skillfully blended their two skills to create something rather special. As the story moves along, so does the room via changes in lighting, texture and shading....really rather remarkable when you study closely.
As the story progresses we find other characters making an appearance; a small cat and a mouse who add some wonderful visual narratives along with the main thrust of the story...again, rather remarkable.
You have to smile at the small rabbits attempts to avoid sleep. I know I did that as a wee one and I suspect that this is a universal phenomenon that goes along with childhood. I also had to smile when the word "mush" is used. I suspect there is not one child in a hundred now days that can tell you what `mush' is.
This work most certainly, in my opinion, ranks right up there in the top ten for the very young child and I feel it is possibly one of the best first books you could present your child with.
I reviewed this from my private collection.
First, my daughter never liked this book or showed interest in it. She loves looking at books, and flipping pages- it's one of her favorite things.
Personally, the book is very awkward and strange. The the colors of the book are dark and muddy, not very appealing to the eye. The color pages get darker towards the end (I guess for simulating the fact that it getting darker in the room and it is time to sleep). Additionally, half of the pages are black and white.
Additionally, I find it strange to say good night to the things that are in the room: "Good night clocks and good night socks". But the most awkward thing is "Good night nobody. Good night mush". Seriously??? Oh, yes the page is blank and on the opposite side there is bowl of cereal... Very very strange.
I attached a couple of pictures.
I think it must be the most boring baby book ever.
awesome book and never gets tired or old and i very HIGHLY recommend getting at least 1 hard bound and the interactive digital for which my 6yr old, when she was a toddler LOVED reading along to with all the interactive games and stories which was very engaging for my toddler and i feel that it made reading the hard bound and digital versions much more enticing for her to read when she was able to read on her own :)
