Parents need to know that Goodnight Moon , by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd , has been a favorite of kids and parents for generations since it was originally published in Pediatricians recommend that a child have a bedtime routine, something familiar and soothing that indicates the end of the play day and time for rest, and Goodnight Moon takes the doctor's advice. The pace, rhythm, and repetition as the little bunny says goodnight to all the things in his house and beyond work to gently lull kids off to dreamland.

As a fire crackles in the fireplace and the moon rises in a wintry night sky outside the windows of his bedroom, a young rabbit settles down for the night. An old lady rabbit rocks quietly in a nearby chair knitting, mittens dry in front of the fire, two kittens tumble on the carpet, and a mouse peeks out.
The Goodnight Book [eBook]
The room grows gradually dimmer as the rabbit says goodnight to each object in his room and outside the window, then falls asleep at last. The rhythm is slow and calming, the rhymes are soft, the ritual of bidding good night to the familiar objects in the room is appealing. For more than 65 years this has been the ultimate going-to-bed book, the first book parents share with their children, the book kids ask for again and again, and the one parents don't mind reading again and again. The pictures are full of interesting details -- the paintings hanging on the wall in bunny's room are of scenes from another Brown-Hurd collaboration, The Runaway Bunny.
The book is smaller than many picture books, just the right size for young hands to hold.
The colors are simple and vivid, gradually getting dimmer in the room as the night sky gets brighter outside the window. Families can talk about nighttime rituals. Parents and children can incorporate goodnight wishes to favorite objects.

But that post was a reminder of the gentle risk Brown takes there. After the moons, we go through the whole room and our love of repetition is satisfied and we can track the little mouse and see the lights dimming in the illustrations. The page turns are beautifully paced and quite slow.
At first, I looked for another page — why end here? The story has moved so close to the bunny as to become an experiential mirror of his drift and fall. How much deeper and more elegant that is than the neat symmetry we might expect.
