This classic book is one of my favorites.

This is an adorable bed time story for toddlers. Bright colors and only a few words in each page leads to great discussions. Board books aren’t a good option for this book.

Not good condition

The book is severely discolored and looks like something was spilt on it.

Good book, bad copy

My baby loves the book but I received a copy with scribbles and the last page missing!


Love this classic little board book! Was in excellent condition with vibrant colors.

Engaging book

Ordered the paperback version. The illustrations are big, and my 8 month old loves seeing them. The writing is simple - short sentences and rhyme scheme. I read her this book before bed and naps, and I feel it helps calm her down.

Goodnight Bedtime Story

Thirty something years ago I bought this titled book to read to my little kids at bedtime. It was one of their favorite books. As they grew older my daughter would read it to her two brothers. I got this so my daughter will read to her kids.

Goodnight Moon delights little ones as it gets them ready for sleep.

Children will love looking for the little mouse on each page and the other items mentioned in the story. As the child says "goodnight" to each item and the pages darken, indicating night, they will also slow down, ready for sleep.

Not “Very Good” Condition

Looks like every single page of the board book got stuck together at some point and was ripped apart. Not a single page was spared. I can’t believe I spent money on this when for a few bucks more I could’ve gotten a new one...


Vey surprised in a good way. Opted for saving the book for when the kids are older. The smell of old library transported me to my elementary school years, a vintage gem. No marks, scratches or anything.

I ordered the "good" verison of this book and it was NOT in good condition the binding was coming ap

Book was one of my favorites to read to day care children.

Glad to Have It

Excellent beginner book for the kids I tutor in reading.

Pages torn

Perfect Gift

Goodnight Moon" fulfills two very powerful needs to small children - to keep their mothers close to their sides as long as possible and to make closure on their day by telling each object goodnight. It is a poetic and soothing book helping babies and parents to calm down and go to bed. This charming story of a young rabbit's bedtime ritual invokes the kind of cozy quiet that invites the peaceful security of pleasant dreams. This book is a "must have" for any parent of a young child. Add to it "Why Some Cats are Rascals, Book 1" and you have a perfect birthday package. You might also want to cosider Corduroy , The Giving Tree, and Love You Forever

Great for teaching French!

My family loves this book! We read Bonsoir Lune to our toodler, preschooler and middle schoolers (who are taking French). It is a fantastic companion to the English version, which we read before/after the French version. I only wish I could find it in hard cover (boardbook)!

Magia y Calma

Es un libro muy simple que trasmite una magia y una calma especial. A mi hija le gusta mucho y a mi me encanta!. A veces luego de leerlo terminamos deseando "buenas noches" a cosas que se nos ocurren, muchas veces graciosas, con las cuales terminamos a las risas. Claro, en estos casos la calma no se cumple tanto..., pero nos divertimos mucho.

Read this Book to Create Happy Memories and Pleasant Sleep

This is a book that I read every night to my children. For years, I could not quite put my finger on its appeal. Finally, it clicked one day. There is a cadence to the story that is like a mediation mantra, quietly and gently calming you and your child down. In addition, the book's text and illustrations are matched in away that it is natural to point out the words and pictures to your child, and for them to do the same as they grow older. This means that you are also starting to teach reading in natural, relaxed way. In addition, we all tend to see the glass as half empty rather than as half full. Goodnight Moon encourages a sense of gratitude for whatever is around us. That is a profound and wonderful lesson for everyone to have. Finally, children are fascinated by how another child's room might look. So you also help them to understand the differences among families. How many other books do you know that accomplish so much? Best of all, you and your children (and grandchildren, perhaps) will have wonderful memories to share. That's fantastic! Enjoy!

Es un libro que le encantara a todos los bebes.

Es el favorito de mi hijo de 7 meses. Cuando le leo este libro, se sonrie y presta atencion a los objetos que le voy senalando y ecucha muy atento. En mi opinion, este libro lo deberian tener todos los ninos de edad pre-escolar.
