Nice rhymes

Very pleasant to read and keeps captivate my child.


We love this book!

won't read it

My kids both know that I refuse to read this book. I have no idea why so many people like this book. It has no punctuation until the last page. It has no plot. Why does it alternate between black and white and colored?

Goodnight Moon

My baby used to love this book before bedtime. Now she's more into animals, but it's still a classic.

Kids love this book

This book is soothing, predictable, and repetitive. Bunnies say goodnight to many common items that are found in the baby bunny's nursery, such as a comb and brush, mittens, and a bowl full of mush. Many small children ask to hear it again and again.

Where's the mouse?

It never gets old - the kids love the story and love finding the mouse and labeling everything in the bedroom. It's a very soothing book, decades later.

Great Classic Book

I loved this book as a child and I now love reading it to my children. It has become one of my children's favorite books.


This classic bedtime story never gets old. I read this to my daughter almost weekly. I love the pacing and the rhythm. The simple text is easily understood by even very young children. My daughter looks for the bunny in every picture and knows the words well enough to add them in when I pause. I feel sleepy just thinking about this book!

Great for bedtime

Your young one will enjoy this story no matter how many times you read it.
