Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon (1)

It might be apparent from the curved edges that our copy of this classic American bedtime story is a board book, so I don’t know whether there is a version where the artwork is larger and more details are visible. Nonetheless, it can be seen that “In the great green room”, on the bedside table, there is a copy of Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, pictures by Clement Hurd (Campbell, 2001, copyright 1947).
