Of all of the children's books out there, Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon is one of my absolute favorites. It's simple, it's sweet, it reminds me of simpler times. My mom would read it to me, then she read it to both of my brothers. This children's book is a classic, and has staying power throughout the years. But have you ever really read through Goodnight Moon? And I don't mean the words, I mean the pictures that come along with the words. Let me tell you, there's one thing you never noticed about Goodnight Moon.
The absolutely absurd decor.
Stick with me here. Goodnight Moon is supposed to take place in a child's room, which can be deceiving when you take in the grand state of the room. But it's definitely a child's room, because that's where old lady is putting the child to bed. Have you ever really taken a look around the child's room? It's insane! It's completely insane. Disregarding the atrocious color scheme (angry primary color wheel with a hint of envious green, anyone?), the bedroom holds a few other surprises that you probably haven't noticed over the years. Lucky for you, I'm here to point out all of the insane decor choices you'll find if you take a better look at Goodnight Moon.
