A little bunny bids goodnight to all the objects in his room before falling asleep.

HARPERCOLL

In this classic of children's literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.

In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room—to the picture of the three little bears sitting on chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one—the little bunny says goodnight.

One of the most beloved books of all time, Goodnight Moon is a must for every bookshelf and a time-honored gift for baby showers and other special events.

Goodnight noises everywhere.

I'd never read this growing up but it was being discussed in a book I was reading Wild Things: The Joy of Reading Children's Literature as an Adult by Bruce Handy and I decided I had to read it so I could understand the appeal.

This was a super sweet, lovely little bedtime story. Super effective on all counts. I love that the illustrations changed to suit the story. Over 26 million copies have been sold, and another 600 000 to 800 000 are sold every year, so says Handy, which means there is a copy for 1 in 5 American children.

Harper Lee? Never heard of her. Mark Twain? Who's he?

A total classic.

I've never met a kid who didn't like this book. I read this during Family Storytime and even the most rambunctious toddlers stopped their fidgeting long enough to listen all the way through. The board book version of this classic makes a great baby shower gift.

My toddler loved it! He liked to look at the details in the pictures, and finding little mouse throughout the book :)

"Goodnight nobody" is the best line in the book.
