Goodnight Moon


Found in a box of old books at the opshop - "Goodnight Moon," written in 1947 by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd. I discovered it when L was little. I love it.  He loved it. The rhythm of the words is so simple. Nothing much happens. A little rabbit goes to sleep as night falls, and we say goodnight to all the things in the room including a bowl of mush and a quiet old lady who is whispering 'hush.'
"Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere." Zzzzzzzz....
