There have been so many books and products inspired by Margaret Wise Brown's classic Goodnight Moon but this one is one of my new favourites. It's true to the inspiration but it's silly enough to give your little ones the giggles. Plus it's like the bedtime story version of "shaking your sillies out," giving kids a chance to laugh and point out all the problems the poor camping animals must face in order to get comfortable enough for sleeping but then it brings it back around to them all settling in to bed. It's a great bedtime story, especially for kids who are familiar with Goodnight Moon, or who enjoy camping, or who giggle at the word "underwear."
