First published in 1947, Goodnight Moon is a poem describing a bunny's bedtime ritual of saying "goodnight" to various objects in the bunny's bedroom: the telephone, the bunny's dollhouse, the bears, etc. The illustrations are full of little details which would keep an older child intrigued. The details also change as the story progresses.

As a baby, Ryan had completely no interest in this book. He found it neither soothing nor interesting. We don't have a ritual of saying "goodnight" at our house so perhaps that made a difference. It was only after Ryan turned one that he let his father read through the whole book with him. Now Ryan does pick up the book and flip through the pages on his own. I think it will get more affection as Ryan grows older.
