Margaret Wise Brown’s book Goodnight Moon has long been a favorite in my house. My younger son was obsessed with finding the mouse on every page and for a very good friend’s 40th birthday, my husband slammed it out, set to The Who’s Won’t Get Fooled Again. You shoulda been there.
Now, the joy continues. There’s a hilarious new book for parents and (mature) kids alike, Goodnight Bush, which lets us glorify in the final days (208 and counting) of the Bush administration. Check it out. The website also has a contest for the person coming up with the best couplet, with the prize being a new book. It’s been hell for the past eight years — at this point, we deserve a laugh.
