Clement Hurd (1908–1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Léger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California.

A young child is going to bed and wants to tell all the objects in his room goodnight in a fun and rhythmic way. This is a classic book that I remember reading as a child. This book is written in a way for young children to follow along.

This is a story about a mommy bunny putting her baby to sleep. It's practically wordless. It's a counting book.

I always enjoyed reading this book with my mom and dad at bedtime when I was young. A little bunny rabbit tells all the things in his room goodnight before he goes to sleep. He says goodnight kittens, goodnight mittens. Goodnight clocks and goodnight socks.

The reader is given a tour of a little bunny's room as he lays in bed. One by one, we say goodnight to everything, even the bowl of mush and the old woman that says hush... The book would be great for young children, easy to read with many rhyming phrases.

Another good finger point and read book. Rhyming sentences and pictures to help describe what is going on. Perfect for early readers.
