Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories before she died at the age of 42 after surgery for a burst appendix. She published under her own name as well as under several pen names including Timothy Hay, Golden MacDonald, Juniper Sage, and Kaintuck Brown. According to a Web site dedicated to her, before Margaret began writing books for children, fairytales and fables dominated the world of illustrated stories. But Margaret, or Brownie, as her friends called her, wrote with the then "new" idea that children would rather read about their own lives instead. Many of her books are considered classics of the genre.

Book with strange combination suggestions in Bug Collectors (September 2019)


A heartwarming tale of unconditional love and reassurance that playfully follows a mother's gentle persistence to be there for her child, no matter where imagination leads.

Margaret Wise Brown writes about a bunny saying goodnight to various objects and creatures before drifting off to sleep. Brown did this because she believed that children would like to see realistic objects and understand things of the real world. This idea came from a dream and I believe that this book is very creative in the sense that it doesn't lose the fictional characters or setting but the objects are real and easy for young children to understand.

This is such a classic story that I never get tired of reading it. From the one line sentences to the great visuals and pictures, the author does a great job at putting little one’s to sleep and it will never cease to not be a classic.

Classic childrens book about a bunny who says good night to various objects in their room before they go to sleep. It is repetative and soothing and I remember reading this book as a child. The photos are colorful and cartoony.
