Another book that needs no introduction, Goodnight Moon was part of my oldest’s bedtime routine for about a year, beginning when he was around six months old. We hoped the hypnotic words, the coziness of the pictures, and the unchanging routine would help him (finally) go to sleep. And, as he got older, we enjoyed looking for the mouse hiding in each picture of the room.
