Before going to sleep, a little rabbit says goodnight to his bedroom, and all of his familiar possessions, as his big, green bedroom slowly darkens, in a bigger version of the enduring classic. 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. 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.

I was not impressed. I don’t see why this book is so often recommended.

I read this for the "Written By A Female Author" part of my 2020 reading challenge. It was my first time reading it, and I thought it was perfect. It's soft and gentle and rhymed and it would be easy to read at bedtime and I can see children loving it. No wonder it's a classic.

I never had much of a chance to read goodnight moon when i was younger, and if i did i couldn't remember it, but this book made my heart feel warm and brought me to feel as if i was a little girl again. I loved having the little book in my arms, and still very much enjoyed the simple read. It is like childhood wrapped in a book.

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.

Transition from day time to bedtime with this hypnotic story.

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

My daughter loved this book. She realized herself in loving routine actions of Kitty.

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