About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown, cherished for her unique ability to convey a child’s experience and perspective of the world, transformed the landscape of children’s literature with such beloved classics as Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Other perennial favorites by Ms. Brown include My World; Christmas in the Barn; The Dead Bird; North, South, East, West; and Good Day, Good Night.


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.

this is one of four that we give at baby showers. we've noticed that very few people give books at showers. this purchase was for my sister-in-law. as she began opening it, she started to cry when she realized what the gift was, because she used to read all these books to my daughter when she was small.

Goodnight Moon is a board book for young readers by Margaret Wise Brown. The charming illustrations are by Clement Hurd. It’s bed time for bunny, and he’s in the great green room wishing a good night to all those familiar items occupying the room, or seen from the window. As those items are first listed and then bid goodnight, there’s plenty of rhyming going on. This is a loved classic bedtime book, first published in 1947 and never out of print in over seventy years. Delightful!

Goodnight Moon has been one of my favorite books for as long as I can remember. Its simplicity is what makes it so fascinating. It's perfect for first time readers, and one of the best bedtime stories of all time. I got this book at my baby shower and I love reading it to my son. He loves looking at book and words and this book is perfect to cuddle up with right before bed. Everything these days has to be big and spectacular. I really like the simplicity of this book and the soft, warm colors that are perfect for a bedtime book.

It's hard to imagine anyone who's not familiar with Goodnight Moon. Simply a classic, because of it's simple and repeatable message. Baby gets to say goodnight to a myriad of things on the way to slumber. Get it for your home library.

It is perfect. Sweet, simple, easy to read, perfect length for bedtime. My children love finding the mouse on all the pages. It is a wonderful part of our nightly routine.

This was one of my daughter's favorites. Finding the mouse on each page is the best part.

We got this as a present a month after my daughter was born. It was actually a gift to my mom as part of her 50th birthday present so she could read it to her first granddaughter. We have been reading it to her since then. She is 9 months now, and gets very very excited even if I mention one line from the book. I've memorized it after reading it so many times. It has actually become a security blanket for her. When she sees it or hears the words, she always smiles and laughs. She will always pick it out of the line of about 10 books we have for her. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do.

Margaret Brown probably never expected this charming little book to have such a following over the years, but it's a classic bedtime story in all the best ways. Simple, yet powerful images and bold colors keep this book as one of my favorites (and my sons like it too!).

Every child should have this book and every parent should read it to them at bedtime.

This is a cute childrens story about a little rabbit saying good night to everyone he loves. Very catchy illustrations, and colorful pictures.
Jourdon on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Goodnight Moon is a classic board book introducing objects within a room and showing appreciation towards the objects by saying `goodnight¿ through the poetic word choice. The young audience is captivated by the variety of objects in the room and the colorful illustrations displayed. The first half of the story introduces the objects within the room and the second half of the story says `goodnight¿ to each individual object. The child grasps the importance of saying `goodnight¿ to things he or she cares about. Through repetition, the child can recognize the word pattern and correlate the words to the individual picture. The narrator, the bunny saying `goodnight¿ to the room ends the story by going to bed. This is the perfect book for parents to read to their children at the end of the day. A child will easily recognize the poetic pattern and follow along with the adult reader. This is a book recommended for adults reading and interacting with children 2-5 years of age.

I just don't like that the old bunny is described as "the little old lady who was whispering hush" -- kind of creepy to think of any old lady in your room, rather than a grandmother!
Justy on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book was a staple bedtime story for my son for several years. He loved looking at the pictures and seeing the lights go out as the little bunny got ready for sleep.
MadSqueaker on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
A truly beautiful, classic book. We've been reading this nightly since Squeaker was born, and she adores it. She takes it to bed with her, and I can hear her on the baby monitor, turning the pages and talking to the "mau mau" (the mouse in the pictures).Besides the sweet story, there are many thing to do and talk about with this book that make it a perfect bedtime companion.
AmyElizabeth on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
An essential addition to any child's library. This book is amazing. Not only a great story, but the illustrations bring out the true purpose: to quiet and darken the child's mind until he/she is sleeping peacefully. But it's also great for any adult reading it to a child. There are plenty of details to the illustrations that can keep you searching for any differences or quirks within the pages (did you notice the book on the nightstand?). A must-read.

My favorite book from childhood. I still smile when I read it.
mjgrogan on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
I came across this ¿classic¿ today and¿well¿where do I begin? The back cover advises that this ¿is the perfect first book to share with a child.¿ My family agreed so I had to read this inane ¿story¿ every night to my son until I was able to locate significantly better board books. That is, until I made it to the local bookshop and grabbed any and everything that wasn¿t Goodnight Moon. Ten years later, my son disdains books and, upon rediscovering this, I now know why. Now I understand why the cover doesn¿t specify that you should share this with your child. My son finally slept through the night once I switched to NOT-Goodnight Moon.Unlike one of the other reviews here, I won¿t force a ¿spoiler alert¿ by giving away the ending. Of course, I ask you, what freaking ending? The annoying infant/rabbit/thing finally shuts up? Whoops! Did I give it away? No, no, this book doesn¿t really ever end. The garish graphics and rhythmic incompetence ring in your head for months after finally tossing it into a box in the basement (use triple layers of packing tape).Let me just pinpoint one aspect that¿s bothered me for years. You cannot rhyme ¿moon¿ with ¿moon¿ and be granted ¿Classic¿ status. I¿m sorry ¿ no dice. No third-rate, illiterate rapper would get away with this, why does Brown? All I can guess is that, written shortly after the Second World War, the author (and illustrator) composed this under the duress of shell shock. Is that the explanation? Any other logic eludes me.Perhaps it is telling that the one object the baby bunny neglects to acknowledge is the copy of Goodnight Moon sitting on the night stand.
AnneDenney on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
A classic indeed, and so well read that our copy is falling apart. Might not lull the child to sleep, but is certainly worth being part of the good-night ritual.

Have always wanted to read this book ever since reading Goodnight Bush (a parody on George W. Bush). This is a book that one must read out loud. The words play off of each other with rhyme and lyrical text. Interesting aspect of the story is that everything is going to bed, except for the boy "mouse" in bed. When reading this book there seems to be a sense of warmth and reassurance through out the story, a feeling of comfort. There are details in the illustration through out the book that change (the clock) and re-appear which make for readers wanting to search and analyze each page. The illustrations are bright and vivid with a lot going on but with a sense of purpose, not obnoxious. The illustrations and story work well with each other and complementing each other. This book is written for children but adults seem to enjoy it just as much. Only problem being a bedtime book is that I have found myself wanting to re-read and keep flipping the pages back and forth once I am done reading the story. Ages 3 and up.
