So…by show of hands…who grew up with Goodnight Moon?
I guess a better question is who didn’t grow up with Goodnight Moon?
One of the best parts of becoming a parent is reading the same books to your kids that you remember from your childhood.
Well, I’ve got a Halloween surprise for you:
Someone (Michael Rex) has written a Halloween version of Goodnight Moon.
It’s called Goodnight Goon and it’s done exactly in the writing and illustration style of Goodnight Moon.
I think I have read this book every day this week with my kids.
It is hilarious and charming and not too scary.
This book would be a great one to add to your holiday book collection.
You can purchase it on Amazon or check it out from your local library.
What I love about this book is it gives parents and educators a great way to practice compare and contrast while still feeling festive.
Can you imagine- comparing the original book and Goodnight Goon for similarities and differences?
You would win Halloween. Hands down.
Hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!
