Obsessions - Goodnight Moon

Who isn't obsessed with the classic children's book, Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (pictures by Clement Hurd)? It was such a big part of my childhood that I made sure I raised my child on it too. Now there are two generations of us squirrels who need to hear about a comb and a brush and a bowl of mush to go to bed.

P.s. Late addendum 13 hours post-posting: I *just* found out that today is, coincidentally, Margaret Wise Brown's birthday! I feel more connected to this gem of a book than ever. I think I've spent so much time with it that it is woven into my DNA. Happy birthday, MWB!
