In the big green room, a little rabbit is lying on the bed. “Goodnight, my room. Goodnight, moon.” He said good night to all the familiar things in the room: the picture of the three little bears sitting on the chair, the clock and socks, the kitten and gloves, and so on.

By repeating the objects in the book, repeating Goodnight, and the changes in time and space, this book makes people sleep quietly, but it can brake with static and brake with motion, which complement each other. With the passage of time, all objects related to time change have corresponding changes. The sentences and phrases are symmetrical, rhythmic, and catchy.

Starting from the perspective of children, it has won the love of countless readers.

Since its publication in 1947, Goodnight Moon has been a best seller in the international publishing world. More than 10 million copies of different translations have been published. It was even selected as “one of the most influential classic books of this century” by the New York Public Library.

About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown is a pioneer in the American picture book industry, a gifted picture book writer, and a winner of four Caddick Awards. Few writers are as attuned to children’s concerns and emotions as Margaret Wise Brown. Margaret graduated from Hollins college in Virginia in 1932, and then joined Bank Street College of education, which was carrying out advanced education reform experiments in the United States at that time. During this period, she combined her literary ambition with the research of children’s development and early childhood education. Margaret has extraordinary ability to see the world with a child’s eyes. In her short life, she has created hundreds of works, the most famous of which are Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Year after year, her many classic works have been loved by countless small readers and listeners.

Margaret Wise Brown likes small animals, and many stories take animals as the protagonists. She likes to write stories with rhythm. Sometimes, she will put a difficult word in the story or poem. She thinks that this will let children think about it when they read it. She has a lot of paper manuscripts on hand, which is convenient for her to write down a story inspiration or poem in time. She said that she would dream about those stories, and when she woke up in the morning, she had to write them down quickly in case she forgot. She has always tried to write from the perspective of children listening to stories, not from the perspective of adults telling stories. She also suggested and guided the illustrators she worked with to learn to draw from the perspective of children’s perspective. Once, she gave an illustrator two dogs. The illustrator wanted to draw a book with such dogs. The illustrator drew many sketches one day and then fell asleep. When he woke up, he found that the paper he had painted was empty. It turned out that the two dogs licked up the pictures on the paper. In 1952, on her way to France, she died during her recovery from appendicitis surgery. Many friends have been missing her. They say she is a creative genius.
