“He is obsessed with his ABC’s. We liked ‘Goodnight Moon ABC.’” - Daniel Turner, 2, Aiken
Repurposing Hurd’s original illustrations, this abecedarian adaptation pairs letters of the alphabet (and corresponding words) with objects and elements from the “great green room,” including kittens, paintings, and a red balloon. The myriad objects and Hurd’s ever-striking orange and green palette lend themselves well to the ABC format. And in keeping with the nature of the source material, the book concludes, not with a zebra, but with some bedtime zzzzs. Up to 5. - Publishers Weekly
