As Goodnight Moon is fast becoming a favorite staple bedtime book, it was nice to find an accompanying book. Goodnight Moon ABC is a fun little board book that brings to memory for AppleBlossom our normal reading of Goodnight Moon, but also something different and educational. Through each page some word for each letter of the alphabet is found and brought from the Goodnight Moon book. I think it is a fun, and as she grows will cause her to point out the letters when we also read Goodnight Moon. I think it was probably a fun project to do and I am curious how the Goodnight Moon 123: A Counting Book will be as well. My only qualm is that for somethings they really had to stretch a letter a bit like "O for Outside" and "P for Paintings" and the worst one in my opinion is "U for Under the covers". Yet then I guess that was all they had to work with. Overall I like it. *Thanks to Arianna of HarperCollins Children for providing a copy for review.*
