Does this book look kind of familiar? Well if you are acquainted with "Goodnight Moon" (one of the best sellers of all time), then this book will bring back fond memories. It is a wonderful salute to those happy moments spent reading that book over and over and over again. This is a delightful parody is written to stimulate brains, introduce kids to new words and concepts, and to give an insight into how a scientist conducts her life every single day. I love the fact that the scientist was a girl. Very good indeed. Kids get to witness a scientific lab with its many components and then say goodnight to the people and items that are found within. A fun exercise would be to copycat the goodnight ritual by saying goodnight to the things around your child's room before its lights out. Both kids and adults will appreciate that everyone (and thing) has an end to their day and it's wonderful to wrap everything up and say good night because tomorrow will be here before you know it with all its busyness and possibilities.
