Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
The Spanish translation of Good Night Moon is true to the original. All of our fond illustrations of the moon, kittens, mittens, and the little old lady whispering ?hush' are here, just in Spanish. The translation manages to overcome the difficult obstacle of maintaining the mood of the original. The accompanying disc features a reader with a soothing voice compelling the listener to settle into bed. Her voice is loving enough to take over when the inevitable request to read it again is made. Easily a favorite that will settle in on the book shelf next to the English version, that is when it is not in the hands of a young reader/listener. Tuck your child in and ask if they want to say good night to the moon or la luna. Either way they will drift off into dreamland before you know it with visions of the cow jumping over the moon.

Christian Science Monitor
A little rabbit bids goodnight to each familiar thing in his moonlit room. Rhythmic, gently lulling words combined with warm and equally lulling pictures make this beloved classic "an ideal bedtime book.
Publishers Weekly
Loyal to the original, this translation has retained the poetic and soothing tone that makes it a favorite read-aloud. It's as popular among Spanish readers as its original always has been among English readers. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
A superb job of translating Margaret Wise Brown 's "Goodnight Moon" into Spanish. Teresa Mlawa is able to keep the rhythm and the atmosphere. She even manages some rhyming! This American classic will surely also be loved by the Spanish-speaking audience! 2002, Harper Festival, $7.95. Ages 3 mo. to 5. Reviewer: A.

PreS-K-- One of the best-loved books for very young children, Goodnight Moon is now available in Spanish. The Spanish text does not rhyme, but it is simple and lovely.

We love the original version of Goodnight Moon, and when we found the Spanish version we were over the top with happiness. Several copies have gone out to our Latin America colleagues with 'new family additions.'

This classic tale is wonderful to have in Spanish. We are planning for our new baby in the family to be bilingual.
