This classic bedtime story, which has lulled generations of children to sleep, is the perfect first book to share with a child.Goodnight Moon has been cherished by generations of readers and young listeners. To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the first publication of this beloved classic, we are pleased to present a deluxe edition: the original picture book, Goodnight Moon, plus a 32-page retrospective look at the creation of this favorite bedtime book. The story of Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd’s collaboration on this classic picture book is filled with lively anecdotes and previously unpublished photographs of the author and artist, as well as pages from the original dummy and full-color studies of the artwork.
"In the great green room / There was a telephone / And a red balloon / And a picture of-- / The cow jumping over the moon." Maybe you and your favorite baby have heard this soothing, rhythmic beginning to Margaret Wise Brown and illustrator Clement Hurd's classic Goodnight Moon once or a thousand times. But has your child ever heard it while sporting Goodnight Moon bunny slippers? This compact, clear-plastic tote carries the sturdy board-book edition of Goodnight Moon and one pair of baby-sized slippers, ready to take along for bedtime, naptime, or storytime. These 4-inch-long slippers, equipped with rubber-dotted soles, are made of a thin, soft, blue-and-white-striped fabric with felt-like bands of orange cloth around the elasticized ankles. Best of all perhaps is the sweet bunny head on the top of each slipper, and the white bunny tails on the heels. (The slippers are sized for babies 6 months to one year old)
