Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

This classic children’s book looks wonderful in its new edition and has lost none of its effectiveness as a book to lull children to sleep. As he snuggles down in bed, a little rabbit quietly and methodically says goodnight to all the familiar objects in his room, to his comb and his brush, to the quiet old lady whispering ‘hush’, and finally to the stars and the air, ‘goodnight noises everywhere’. The poetry of the words demands to be read in a hushed singsong, and the equally quiet and gentle illustrations make this a perfect bedtime book. This edition also features some very helpful tips on helping children to fall asleep from an expert sleep consultant. ~ Andrea Reece
