Goodnight Moon Bloggy Giveaway

Goodnight Moon has been a children's classic for decades and is an integral part of my son's nightly bedtime ritual. It's a book that my family loves and one I'd like to share with a lucky winner for the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival.

If want to win a copy, leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite story or book was as a child and why you want this copy of Goodnight Moon. While you're here, I'd love it if you poked around a bit and signed up for my RSS feed. The contest is open only to those in the continental U.S. due to shipping costs and restrictions, sorry!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button I will announce the winner here on Fatherhood Matters in a few days.

Good luck!

  1. My parents used to read this to me and my sister when we were kids. As a result, my sister talked to the moon whenever we saw it at night. If we were riding in the car she would say, "Look the moon is following us."

    I'd love to read it to my daughter. Pick me!

  2. My one favorite books was The Monster At The End of This Book. I love reading it to my kids.

    Shockingly enough we have never read Goodnight Moon but they love some of the other books by the same author, so I would love to add to our collection.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Noisy Nora, Bedtime for Frances, The Little Red Car, I'm Going to Run Away, Curious George, Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel, Where the Wild Things Are... It's hard to pick a favorite because my parents read to me a lot when I was little. It has stayed with me my whole life. Now my wife and I try to read with our kids as much as we can so that they'll have a love of reading, too. (And the time spent with them is priceless.) Goodnight Moon is a classic and unfortunately our copy didn't survive our first two kids - it was, um, well loved. We'd really love to be able to share it with our next child, too.
