Attuned to the concerns and emotions of childhood, Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals, while The Runaway Bunny’s pretend tale of leaving home evokes reassuring responses from loving parents.

goodnight moon book


  1. Praying before going to bed and give thanks for something that happened that day

  2. My kids love to be snuggled and we always say “Mommy and Daddy love you very much. We hope you sleep well, and we will see you in the morning”


  4. My husband and I tuck our girl in every night with kisses, hugs and I love you’s, even at ten she does not want to miss our nightly ritual.

  5. We love bedtime stories in our house. Its a special time to unwind togather, bond and communicate through reading. Sometimes we read for hours hehehehe

  6. Our favorite bedtime ritual is singing silent
    Night. No matter what time of year it is 🙂

  7. Any quiet alone time we can get we enjoy. We actually canceled cable so we would stop getting sucked into so much tv and just have family time!

  8. After brushing our teeth, going potty and getting a drink, we take turns praying together.

  9. We all pile into one of the boys beds and pray together every night before we head to bed. Sweetest time of the day 🙂

  10. We always read before bed, We start early, reading to our baby and pointing at words. As they grow, the reading changes. We take turns reading. Now that my daughter can read, I lay next to her and read my book while she reads her book. Reading rules!

  11. We love hugs and kisses. My daughter just started to read and she reads 1 book before bed.

  12. My granddaughter always says..” I think I need to lay down now..” And within just a few minutes she is out !!! But sometimes she wil get Good Night Moon and we will read it together !!!!

  13. Once we are ready for bed, my little one picks out a couple of books to read – one for mommy to read, one for daddy to read and now that she is starting to read, she sometimes picks one for her to read to us. We like to give each other butterfly kisses before we turn the lights off. She says that makes her sleep better.

  14. At bedtime my son likes to say goodnight to the family including the dogs. He HAS to had his stuffed bunny and his lovey. We then talk about the day and say our prayers.

  15. My son is 6, and we have read two books every night at bedtime for as long as I can remember. (I read to my girls too until I could no longer fit on the bed or in the rocker with them!!) He always picks out at least one of the books, but sometimes I choose so I can introduce him to a new story or one we haven’t read in a while. He loves this ritual and NEVER wants to go to bed without reading. I will miss this special time when he is older and can read to himself.

  16. We read books every night. My youngest daughter is just learning to read so she wants to get voice heard too! And then, after lots of hugs and kisses, I lay down with each daughter for a few one on one minutes before sleep.

  17. My kids love reading books at bedtime! We’d love to see this! It was their favorite book when they were little. They loved to find the mouse in each picture!

  18. We do our daily devotion and say our prayers. It’s my favorite time of the day.

  19. I have 9 grandkids and they have all heard & many still hear this Grandma read them books before bed! It’s has served me well in the past & continues to serve me well today! I am an avid reader & it’s a very special bonding experience for us all! I would love to take my local grandkids to this show!

  20. After baths and teeth brushed, we pick 2 stories, read, prayers and lights out!! Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny are 2 favorites!!

  21. We get in our jammies, sit in her bed and read a book…or two or three…then give hugs and kisses and say our prayers!

    • btw, I am signed up for the newsletter, and follow you on all social media, and just posted on your FB page!

  22. Bath, jammies, brush teeth, love up for a bit & then say goodnight. Usually some discussion over whether she can sleep with me or on the couch.

  23. Every night after bath we have ‘calm time.’ I set the timer for 12 minutes (random number, I know, but that’s the number of minutes my daughter picked), and we do a calm activity, like read a book, coloring, watching the iPad. When the timer goes off it’s bedtime and she goes right to bed!

  24. We take a bath, then read 2 books (either GOODNIGHT MOON, THE RUNAWAY BUNNY (which is why this would be per-fect!!), The Big Red Barn, or Goodnight Gorilla are in our top 4), then rock and sing 3 songs, one of them always being Wheels on the Bus, his fave, then we say “close those sleepy eyes, you’re my best boy, I love you more than all the stars in the sky and all the sand on the beach”, then bedtime.

  25. We love reading books to our sweet baby that is still on the way! We also love reading and praying with our 9 yr old

  26. We love reading books at bedtime and then talking about them after we are done reading, sometimes making up our own versions of the stories.
