Goodnight Moon is a bedtime story for very young children. The wording is extremely simple and repetitive. It is meant to be read aloud, and when it is it is a calming rhythm. This is important when trying to get a child to quiet down and sleep.
However, Goodnight Moon is also a great book to use to help children to learn objects. It continually repeats object names over and over and provides brilliantly colored illustrations of the objects. Even for object naming the audience is fairly inexperienced or young as there is only a limited number of objects that are said over and over again.
The book is a nice calming read, with cute pictures, and any young child can relate to wanting to say goodnight to everything to avoid going to bed. While it is not my favorite children's picture book it is hard to write a good book to engage the very earliest of readers and this book does so extremely well.
