A New Take on An Old Classic: 12 New Books Inspired by Goodnight Moon

By Devan McGuinness |

One of the first books I bought when my kids were old enough to be interested in reading before bed (or anytime during the day) was Goodnight Moon. I had this book when I was little and I consider it one of those ‘classic books’ every household should have. The simple rhymes and engaging illustrations, this book quickly became a hit with my kids.  The repetition helped them ‘read along’ and it’s a great read before bedtime.

Of course, when one book (or toy) becomes popular, redesigns and parodies will pop up all over the place.  I found some hilarious variations of the classic book – some new for kids and some strictly for the parents.
