Both my husband and I were read Good Night Moon as babies
Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2018
Both my husband and I were read Good Night Moon as babies, and we both are set on passing the love on to our own children. I was already familiar with Runaway Bunny, which is why I jumped on this box set. (I had the joy of introducing it to my husband as well as my tiny ones.)
My complaint and three stars is for Good Night Moon. (It's a simple rhyme story that goes through the room and says good night to all the objects. Very cute story.) The story begins with the light on, and then in the last half of the book the light turns off. In this particular set, the light off pages are very, very dark. It's very difficult to see the images on these pages even in normal light, and would be impossible under low light. Also, any child/adult with vision problems might not be able to see any of the detail at all, even in normal light.
The picture was taken under a skylight and compares the book from this set (left) to the book I was replacing (right). Both are board books.
We previously had a board book for Good Night Moon that didn't have this issue, so I think perhaps we simply ended up with a badly printed one. (Especially as Runaway Bunny did not have this issue.) I still highly recommend both stories, but I will have to replace the one book.
