Short Review: 
The classic story of a little bunny's bedtime ritual - saying goodnight to everything around him.
Long Review: 

A classic of children’s literature—and for good reason.  The more you read this book, the more perfect it becomes.  A young bunny is in bed, but is not yet ready for sleep, so he looks around his room and says goodnight to all the familiar objects he sees – “Goodnight comb and goodnight brush / Goodnight nobody / Goodnight mush”.  The bunny’s need for order and security is satisfied by this comforting ritual.  The illustrations have an old-fashioned feel, which only adds to the sense of comfort. A book you and your child will enjoy reading again and again - each reading leaves you with the same feeling as the little bunny – everything is in its place and all is right with the world.
