Shadow -- I'm so glad you found this after reading Negotiable. :whistle: :hug: Talk about polar opposites. :snicker: Thank you so much for your comment -- I'm really glad you enjoyed this. :teeth:

GA - good to see you! And thanks for you kind words. :rose: I agree this probably wouldn't have worked for first-graders, but it can be fun to compare. Image

Hi, Marigold! :wave: -- thank you so much for stopping by and checking this out. You comment means so much to me. :flowers:

This is a classic, and a clever one at that. I always chuckle at 'goodnight shower'

Thank you, dear Lilly for bringing a Moonlight smile to my face. :hug:

I'm popping in on your birthday to read my favorite of your Moonlight Bedtime Stories. I can't tell you how many times I've read Goodnight Moon over the years. You have combined two of my favorite things... this wonderful book, with all its cozy and happy associations, and my very favorite television universe, the place I've spent nearly the past five years happily enjoying my own and others' creativity... and I wanted to thank you for this, among the many other gifts you've given me. :hearts: :reading: :heart: :rose:

And, of course, I had to save my favorite for last. :cloud9: Long after my son stopped wanting me to read Goodnight Moon to him, I kept reading it occasionally, just for myself. I loved searching through the pictures to find the mouse, and seeing what the bunny got up to as he was getting sleepy. (Okay, I'll admit it--I still own the book, and I still get it out from time to time!) This lovely picture-story combines my happy memories of reading a favorite book (one of the only ones that I never tired of!) to my little boy, with my happy memories of that amazing rush of love and joy that we all felt for our favorite show, especially in those early days. It is a little bit bittersweet, because of the way things turned out... but mostly, it's just happy and funny and sweet. And, on top of that, it really captures the cadence and feel of the original story, while giving us the Moonlight world to say goodnight to. Margaret Wise Brown would be proud!

So...
Goodnight cool chairs and LA night airs,
Goodnight "A" and goodnight "Hey"...
Goodnight handsome vamps, I'm turning off my lamps (and going to bed, because it's nearly 2am!) :laugh:

Thank you, dear Lilly, for this lovely trip through your bedtime stories. They are a treasure. :smooch:

I DO remember reading this one before, and I still enjoy it. The shower and the lady who came by to say "hey." :laugh: Maybe due to the amount of time that has passed, but I don't think of it as sad. It's a tribute to some of our favorite things about Moonlight. And it makes me smile.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents with us all these years, Lilly! :kiss: :flowers:


:thanks:
