- This is a great book but one of the kids I read it to, did not like the fact there was no mommy kissing the child before bed. I guess this is a kids book, and a few of the kids missed that feature.
- If you have a child having difficulty going to bed, try reading this book to the child in an interactive way. For example when you read goodnight comb, goodnight brush, like the little rabbit have the child point it out in his room. When you read more difficult things like red balloon, have your child point to something red. Hopefully this will show your child that bedtime can be fun and motivate them to stay in their rooms.
- Collages are a great way to help kids express themselves by using colors and various objects. Bring to your child a bunch of magazines and scraps. After reading Goodnight Moon give your child a piece of paper and together the two of you can make a collage of how you interpret the book. For example he might like good night socks and paste on many pairs of socks cut out from a magazine. This can be a really fun project so try to think out of the box. For example if you have some spare newborn socks or red balloons, now is the time to bring them out. Hands on activities are a great way for kids to learn and express themselves.
