Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"This melodic companion to Goodnight Moon, narrated by the endearing rabbit child, introduces those elements of his life that he holds most dear," wrote PW. Ages 1-4. (Feb.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Following Good Night Moon and The Runaway Bunny, this story has also become a classic in children's literature. Designed after their other two hits, this popular author-illustrator team captures little bunny and his family exploring everyday living. The simplicity of the text along with the familiarity of little bunny and his family make this an easy book to add to your existing collection. Children will be delighted to see little bunny again and explore his world. 2001, HarperCollins, $ 15.95. Ages 1 to 4. Reviewer:Sharon Tolle

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.
