Review quote

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. * The New York Times *show more
