Good Day, Good Night, from the author of Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon was a pivotal book from my childhood, one that I remember reading with my parents and one that I now cherish as a parent. Those illustrations from illustrator Clement Hurd? Classics! And now 70 years later, Margaret Wise Brown’s wise and sweet words are back in the companion book our childhoods are missing. Good Day, Good Night is the newest book from Margaret Wise Brown, the unpublished work that is now an instant family treasure. The beautiful illustrations from Loren Long really help to capture the essence of Margaret Wise Brown’s words. Reading this book with my daughter is like revisiting an old friend. Happy, safe, warm, familiar.
