The Barnes & Noble Review
From the author-illustrator team of Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd comes the companion to the bestselling picture book Goodnight Moon. First published in 1947, Goodnight Moon became a favorite with parents and children -- the quintessential bedtime story. Two years later, Brown and Hurd collaborated again on My World. Adopting the same simple style and graceful poetry, My World continues with a small bunny's view of the world.

After saying goodnight to all his familiar things, bunny gets his first glimpse into the world around him. Snug in his rocking chair, he observes his family and their things. From Mother's chair to Daddy's pajamas, he takes in all the magnificence of the familiar objects in his world. Bunny goes fishing, works on his toy car, and brushes his teeth, all with a sense of wide-eyed wonder. Brown uses simple text and easy rhymes, perfect for young readers. Writing with a true understanding of a child's mind, Brown focuses on everyday things with which all children will identify.

Hurd's illustrations are in both color and black-and-white and are sure to captivate the imagination of youngsters. Beautiful tones and flowing lines match the simplicity of the story. And whimsical touches, such as the family's nighttime attire of boldly hued robes, add to the fun.

A wonderful read and a perfect companion to Goodnight Moon, this spectacular picture book is sure to be another instant classic. (Amy Barkat)

My soon-to-be-9-month old daughter and I have fallen in love with Margaret Brown's books. This one is no exception. The bright colors and alternating black and white illustrations capture her attention. The pictures are so full of little details so that there always seems to be something new to discover each time we read it. The rhyming words and simple phrases are a joy to read.... even over and over again!

Highly Recommended, my son loved the colorful illustration and recognized the characters from Goodnight Moon.

This is a nice companion book to Good Night Moon, but the words and sentences do not flow quite as I expected. It gets better the more you read it out load (and with a typical toddler, you will get plenty of chances), but the first couple of time are a little rough.I would propably tell friends to skip it if they asked.

My son loves this almost as much as Goodnight Moon. It is one of his first picks from his bookshelf. Sometimes during the day I hear him reciting passages from the book and he is only 20 months old. A wondefrul book to read and cuddle with your child.

I cannot say enough good things about this book. The rhyme is brilliant. The story very cleverly tells the going's on in 'my world', which is the world of a young child. The book illustrates the similarity and differences between, Mommy, Daddy and Child. A beautiful story with amazing illustrations. This is a favorite of my two year old daughter and has become a tradition in our house! I keep extra copies on hand as gifts and they are always well received.
