This book was one of our bedtime rituals. When I was weaning my son from frequent night-time breastfeedings, we would read this book at bedtime every evening. Sometimes I could hear him "reading" this book to himself in the dark if he was still have trouble settling down. Often, we read it in unison, and chuckled together. It's sweet and slow and comforting, and simply taking the time to cuddle and read it has a peaceful effect on both parent and child.

This is one of my daughter's favorite books. She will be four soon and still loves this book! She enjoys the rhymes and bright, bold colors--and the bunny.
I think what makes this book so special, among many things, is that it's short, full of contrasting, bright colors, and the fact that "Mommy" is reading it. I cuddle up with her and have the lights dimmed and she's dressed and ready for bed with her favorite blanket, relaxed and ready to look and listen.
The part after, "Goodnight comb, And goodnight brush," where it next says, "Goodnight nobody," I have placed a baby picture of my daughter and we say together, "Goodnight________,"(her name.) She enjoys seeing herself in the book and I think it's great for her to basically tell herself to go to sleep!
The last full-page spread (which by the way, every colored page is a full-page spread) is particularly pleasant; the lights are dimmed in the baby bunny's room, he's in in his pajamas in his bed under the covers and the only things that are dominant and glowing are the moon and night stars, the fire in the fireplace, and the toyhouse's lights. Looking at that, what else would a child want to do but follow the bunny's lead and go to sleep? Goodnight Moon! (Big yawn...)
Suggestion: If your child doesn't want to let you leave after reading the book, you can make up your own "Goodnight ROOM" story and help him/her say goodnight to objects in his/her room. This in addition to the book, should do the trick!

Don't listen to the one- and two-star people!
"Goodnight Moon" is the quintessential bedtime book. It is worded perfectly for a relaxed pace and soothing tone from the reader, as well as a nice poetic rhythm. The little bunny in the story says goodnight to objects in the room as he goes to bed; you can continue from this book to say goodnight to objects in your child's own room. As you read, watch the moon rise and the time change on the clocks, and remember to look around the room for the mouse!
I am perplexed by the reasons given by some reviewers as to why they don't like this book. As for boredom, any adult can become bored with a children's book of this level when it's read over and over and over (and over), as children of this age require of you. "Goodnight Moon" is not aimed at adults. That obvious fact being said, I have *never* been bored with this long-memorized book in four years of reading it (over and over and over), because it is so well written.
One current reviewer claims there is no lyricism or poetry to the words, which left me agape -- anyone who can speak English decently well could feel the rhythm and lyricism in the text, and read it accordingly. Was she reading a different book?
To the reviewer who noted the "tired catalogue of meaningless objects," remember that small children need repetition to learn -- "Read it, Papa, read it (over and over and over)!" -- and no objects are meaningless to them. They are curious about everything; it is we adults who often narrow our curiosity too much, teaching our children to do likewise. And of course, the worth of artwork is always a matter of opinion -- he is obviously a "modern art" person from his other reviews, so he knows this very well.

"Goodnight Moon" fulfills two very powerful needs to small children - to keep their mothers close to their sides as long as possible and to make closure on their day by telling each object goodnight. It is a poetic and soothing book helping babies and parents to calm down and go to bed. This charming story of a young rabbit's bedtime ritual invokes the kind of cozy quiet that invites the peaceful security of pleasant dreams. This book is a "must have" for any parent of a young child. Add to it books from the series Cats Are Rascals and you have a perfect Christmas package.

I received three GOODNIGHT MOON books as gifts when my baby was born, and now I know why! GOODNIGHT MOON is a soothing, rhythmic book. It is one of two books that lulls my baby to sleep every night.
The alternating color and black-and-white pictures are soothing and calming. The bright green colored pictures gradually become darker and darker as sleepy time approaches. The words are melodic and can even feel hypnotic if read in a certain way.

Of the hundreds of books that we read to our children when each of them were 5 and under, this was the best. Seeing the cover of the book takes me back to that feeling of having a child in jammies snuggled up next to me, hearing the story before bedtime. The illustrations are heart-warming. A rabbit is getting ready for bed. On each page, he says goodnight to something. A mouse is hidden on each page, and kids love to find it.
Buy this book if you have children who like bedtime stories. My children never tired of hearing this and I never tired of reading it to them.
