Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Originally published in 1949 (two years after its companion, Goodnight Moon), My World by Margaret Wise Brown, illus. by Clement Hurd, was reissued in 2001 (after being out of print for more than 30 years)-and here neatly adapts to a board book format. PW wrote, "The volume's words and pictures stretch the boundaries of its time-honored predecessor, affirming that there is, indeed, a warm and welcoming world beyond the great green room."
Children's Literature
The format with alternating color and black-and-white spreads and the characters in the book definitely mark this as a companion to Goodnight Moon. In this board book edition, kids experience a broader world�the family, items around and outside the home, and a series of events that would normally occur in a child's life. The book, with its family of rabbits, is quite reassuring and the poetic text is reflective of Margaret Wise Brown's other books. This one is much longer than Goodnight Moon, and does not have the soothing repetitive text, but is still a fun book to share with kids. 2003 (orig. 1949), HarperFestival/HarperCollins Publishers,

Back in print after a long absence, this companion to the classic Goodnight Moon finds everyone's favorite bunny venturing beyond the great green room into the larger world. Brown's playfully lyrical text is set to a familiar visual beat, with black-and-white drawings punctuating full-color vignettes of family life.

Kirkus Reviews
First published in 1949, this looks and reads just like its predecessor Goodnight, Moon, with a series of cozy domestic scenes featuring a bunny family matched to childlike rhymes, some of which-"My dog. / Daddy's dog. / Daddy's dog / Once caught a frog"-is engaging silly talk, more about sound than meaning. Here the young narrator articulates the concepts of "mine," "yours," and "ours," while cataloguing familiar sights and possessions, so this may help children (or adults, for that matter) who don't quite have those distinctions clear yet. One scene showing Father, Mother, and Child sharing the bathroom may explain why the original was allowed to pass out of print, but these days it shouldn't raise any eyebrows.
