Chosen as one of BookTrust and Supernanny Jo Frost's Best Bedtime Reads for Newborns.

This gentle bedtime story, which has lulled generations of children to sleep, is the perfect first book to share at bedtime.

In a great green room a little bunny is tucked up snugly and safely in bed and is getting ready to say goodnight to all the familiar things in his room, one by one.

Margaret Wise Brown's comforting, rhythmical text accompanied by the warmth of Clement Hurd's classic mid-century illustrations make Goodnight Moon a timeless picture book, which is known and loved around the world. Printed now with a beautifully vivid orange pantone ink to recapture the magic of the 1947 original, Goodnight Moon makes the perfect birthday or christening gift.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Rhythmic, gently lulling words combined with warm and equally lulling pictures make this beloved classic an ideal bedtime book * Christian Science Monitor *
The sound of the words, the ideas they convey and the pictures combine to lull and reassure * New York Times *
The words are like an incantation, a spell - intoxicating for children and mercifully unannoying for parents, even on the hundredth reading. To hear the opening line of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon - "In the great green room" - is to embark on a Proustian reverie about a calm place with the lights turned low and a child snuggling sleepily in your arms. It seems as complete as a children's book can be. * The New York Times *
In a great green room a little bunny is tucked up snugly and safely in bed and is getting ready to say goodnight to all the familiar things in his room, one by one. This gentle story, loved by generations of children, is the perfect book to read to your toddler at bedtime (and hopefully lull them to sleep too) * Mumsnet Best Books for 2 Year Olds (2nd April 2020) *
The best lullaby-type book is Goodnight Moon - my two and a half year old daughter can recite it off by heart and reads it to her teddy after we leave her to go to sleep. It is a wonderful discovery, clever, sweet and just the thing before bedtime -- Mumsnet
Friends who are on their third child rave about it, and it is the accepted classic first book to buy for a baby * Irish Independent *

“Goodnight Moon”

Old fashioned but soothing book for bedtime reading for children of one year and upwards. Lovely simple pictures and not too much text.
