Summary

Summary

In a great green room, tucked away in bed, is a little bunny. "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." And to all the familiar things in the softly lit room--to the picture of the three little bears sitting on chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one--the little bunny says goodnight.

In this classic of children's literature, beloved by generations of readers and listeners, the quiet poetry of the words and the gentle, lulling illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of the day.


Author Notes

Margaret Wise Brown was born on May 10, 1910 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York, to Robert Brown, a Vice President at American Manufacturing Company and Maud Brown, a housewife.

In 1935, Brown began working at the Bank Street Cooperative School for student teachers. Two years later, her writing career took off with the publication of "When the Wind Blows." Over the course of fourteen years, Brown wrote over one hundred picture books for children. Some of her best known titles include Goodnight Moon, Big Red Barn and Runaway Bunny.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 5-These excellent videos, suitable for deaf or hearing children, combine the quality viewers have come to expect from Weston Woods with the American Sign Language (ASL) savvy of production company ASL Inside. Each program presents a popular children's book and uses the familiar format of picture-book pages translated to video, with some animation added. Signers Missy Keast and Manny Hernandez, both known in the signing community for their storytelling skills, appear in the foreground, translating the text on each page into ASL. Optional English text on screen and English voiceover make these videos completely accessible to all viewers. Additional features include a vocabulary section, which is arranged alphabetically by English translation and shows featured signs in isolation, and a 10-question quiz that assesses comprehension and memory. Additional classroom activities, flashcards, and worksheets are available online for each title. The series will appeal to multiple audiences: deaf children can access the stories in their native language while building English vocabulary and reading skills, and hearing youngsters can practice their English vocabulary while learning basic ASL.-Kathleen Kelly Macmillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
