Goodnight Moon

What a classic! All of my children have greatly enjoyed having Goodnight Moon read to them and then reading this book when they were able. Written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd, the words have a lulling rhythm and the pictures are captivating. Trenton has claimed this book as his favorite. He can't quite say the words, but he makes the sound with inflection of "Good night, Moon" saying "good, hu, moo". So sweet.

For pre-school or kindergarten age children, Hubbard's Cupboard has a lesson plan for the story. I haven't read it in detail, but what I did read looks good. Might be fun to do with Bethany.

Good night room. Good night air. Good night noises everywhere.
