I bought this set when my baby was 3 months old. We started reading him Goodnight Moon every night as part of his settling routine - we thought it was just a nice, short, repetitive little bedtime book that could be read in about 4 minutes. Well, it's turned out to be so much more than that. Our son is now almost 2 and he still has Goodnight Moon as the last story of the night, every night. He loves hearing the little bunny saying Goodnight to everything in his room, a routine we also perform as part of our bedtime wind down. He still laughs at "Goodnight Nobody" and we still enjoy reading it. Thats a tough call for a book we've read about 1500 times. He has a second copy for his bookcase because he loves this story so much that he pulls it out to read most days (and we are more than a little afraid of the precious bedtime book being lost!) It is such an integral part of his sleep routine that it is the first thing we pack to take on holidays. This book has given us a lot of pleasure, and has played a big part in a wonderful sleep routine.
He began a love affair with Big Red Barn at about 14 months and it remains a strong favourite - often on his bedtime reading choices. The wonderful poetry is a joy to read aloud and we all know it by heart. He loves the animal noises (espescially the rooster), counting the eggs under the hen and whispering so as not to wake the animals who are sound asleep in the bed red barn. I love reading him this book. My favourite.
The Runaway Bunny was a hit for a short while when he was about 12 months old - probably because I did a funny voice for the little bunny. It fell out of favour as the text was too long for a younger baby. For the last few weeks though, this has re-emerged as THE book. The one he hunts for in his bookcase.

Originally written in the 1940's, these classic children's books will still delight your baby or toddler. The youngest baby is lulled to sleep by the gentle rhymes, and will enjoy the bright colors and charming illustrations as he or she gets older."Goodnight Moon" depicts a young bunny rabbit awake in his bed as he tells all the objects and animals he can see "Goodnight". He lists everything he can see, including his mittens, some kittens, and of course the moon. Toddlers will begin to appreciate the make-believe world of "The Runaway Bunny", in which a mother bunny tells her child she will be there to keep him safe no matter where he runs to. The bright colors of "Big Red Barn" are intriguing to little ones, and will help teach the names of many animals,too. The board books are ideal for the youngest readers, as they can easily help turn the pages. It is difficult for a child younger than 2 years old to turn the paper pages of most books.These are three excellent books to add to your child's library and start the happy tradition of reading!

These are the books your children will take to bed with them every night. Goodnight Moon has been my daughter's favorite bedtime book for 2 years, the one she HAS to have read to her before she can fall asleep. It must be the lyrical prose, and the illustrations that FEEL like a bedtime snuggle...this is the book I buy as a gift for every new parent.
Runaway Bunny is just beautiful, the watercolor paintings of a mother and child are fanciful and loving, and seem to come straight from a child's imagination.The theme is especially helpful for clingy children, reassuring them there will always be enough love to sustain them.
The Big Red Barn is simply the most enchanting book of farm animals I have ever seen, with lively colors and a story that intrigues my daughter so much, this is the first book she was content to sit down with and "read" all alone.

Although these books were first written about 40 years ago they are still fresh and new for each child to discover. The author allows the reader a peek into the world of our children; sweet and endearing. These books now available in board book format for the youngest listeners are the perfect bedtime books to soothe a youngster off to sleep. "Runaway Bunny" assures each child of the parent's unconditional love. "Goodnight Moon" not only offers a sweet way to say goodnight to familiar objects, but may even help establish a bedtime ritual that will help your child get ready for sleep, and "Big Red Barn" offers a perfect introduction to animals; their sounds and families. All in all this collection makes a great addition to a well established children's library, or a great foundation.

When I first bought this set and began to read them to my two year old, I just didn't get it! The rhymes weren't quite right, the pictures were kind of old fashioned and the stories weren't really proper stories. In fact I didn't really enjoy reading them the first couple of times. But I soon realised what a mistake I'd made.
Why should poetry for children rhyme and scan perfectly? The pictures have delightful details which become more and more obvious with each reading. The stories are wonderful, loving and gentle. Just what bedtime needs.
Now after over a year of reading these three books many, many times, I find myself being disappointed when my daughter choses another book at bedtime.
