Goodnight Moon: “In the great green room, there was a telephone, and a red balloon, and a picture of cow jumping over the moon….”
Doesn’t it seem unusual? Oh yes! But I tell you, once you show it your baby, you will then realize the beauty of this text. When there will be a twinkle in your baby’s eyes and a big smile.
So, what am I talking about? The “Goodnight Moon” book.

In this softly lit great green room, a little bunny, tucked in its bed, is slowly getting off to sleep. All the familiar things are depicted with gentleness and warmth. It takes you to a beautiful journey of whispering goodnight to the room, the moon, the stars, the toy house, the clocks, the socks, the picture of three bears, the mittens, and the kittens, one by one. The attraction lies in the old lady who whispers “hush” which mesmerizes young minds. The final goodnight to the noises everywhere will surely make your baby drift to sleep too!
