Goodnight Moon

A childhood classic that's been around for 60+ years that's loved by children and their parents both. Popular enough to be a book read to each generation of children this is a must have for parents.

With the bright colors of the young rabbits room the poem starts with a bright upbeat. Each detail of the room is pointed out- a great look and find for your child to do- and as the poem progresses the bright hue slowly begins to darken as one can assume the young rabbit who is heading the poem is beginning to drift off to sleep.

The poem also begins to change it's pitch from it's quick vibrance to a slower, calmer feel. Quieter in voice and more comforting as the book comes to an end and hopefully your children are stifling yawns as they too feel sleep come upon them.

A great companion to this book is also The Runaway Bunny (my personal favorite). I feel that these two books are a must have for any family that's just beginning. It would serve as a good source of comfort for anyone who is looking for a bit of childhood nostalgia.
