Goodnight, Moon is the chilling portrayal of a small child (represented, oddly enough, by a rabbit), listing the things in their bedroom and then saying goonight to them, one by one.
At best, this is obvious stalling behavior by a willful child, remaining undealt with by a "programmed parent." At...

I was stunned to see this appear on a list of banned books . . . I mean, seriously? What could be more innocent than this book? What within these brightly-colored pages could possibly be considered objectionable? A Google search revealed nothing. Even Wiki let me down this time.
Luckily, while I w...

Or is that that the narrator says goodn...

The baby bunny is oddly unengaged with a temperamental grandma bunny as he (or she) watches the room grow darker (even though the moon rises). Despite these inconsistencies and occasional strange reading cadences (goodnight nobody? what does that mean), I would recommend book to anyone interested...

I think this is a book you have to have read first when you were very young in order to LOVE it. At least for me, when I first read it as an adult, I just didn't get why it is such a classic and why so many people count it as their all-time favorite first book from their childhood. I can see that...
