This is one of my 3 year old's favorite books. She loves it! We have read it just about every night for the past year. It is truly a classic bedtime story. Would make a nice gift for any toddler or preschooler.

Author Info
Margaret Wise Brown
Margaret Wise Brown, best known for GOODNIGHT MOON, the enduring classic given to every new parent, wrote over 100 books for children and was a pioneer in the areas of children's literature and education. Though many of her books featured bunnies and other fluffy creatures, she belonged to the Buckram Beagles, a Long Island hunting club. Brown won the Caldecott Medal in 1947 for THE LITTLE ISLAND. She died tragically young, at the age of 42 of an embolism following a routine operation.
From the Publisher
First Line In the great green room there was a telephone and a red balloon and a picture of the cow jumping over the moon.
Editors Note A little rabbit bids goodnight to each familiar thing in his room, in this classic story told with gently lulling words and soothing illustrations. 1988 Choices (Association of Booksellers for Children). Full color.
Editors Note 2 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 in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one--he says goodnight.In this classic of modern 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.
Annotation Simple, warm illustrations and a gentle rhyming text combine to tell the story of a sleepy bunny saying goodnight to all the things he can see and hear as he drifts off to sleep. A bright, full moon shines into a green room with a red floor, where all sorts of objects and creatures dwell, including two pictures, a fireplace, kittens, a toy house, and even an old lady knitting. Tucked into bed, the little rabbit slowly succumbs to sleep after saying goodnight to everything and everyone, from a bowl of mush to the twinkling stars. Alternating double-page, full-color paintings with single-page, B&W spot paintings, this classic bedtime tale has lulled countless children to sleep since it was first published in 1947. Sharp-eyed readers can search for the little mouse hiding within each of the color illustrations and note how, as this bedtime tale progresses, the illustrations grow subtly darker, setting the stage for sleep.
