The sound of the words, the ideas they convey and the pictures combine to lull and reassure
New York Times
Rhythmic, gently lulling words combined with warm and equally lulling pictures make this beloved classic an ideal bedtime book
Christian Science Monitor
The words are like an incantation, a spell - intoxicating for children and mercifully unannoying for parents, even on the hundredth reading. To hear the opening line of Margaret Wise Brown’s Goodnight Moon - “In the great green room” - is to embark on a Proustian reverie about a calm place with the lights turned low and a child snuggling sleepily in your arms. It seems as complete as a children’s book can be.
