 Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny,  ased on stories by Margaret Wise Brown

Goodnight Moon & The Runaway Bunny, ased on stories by Margaret Wise Brown

Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals. Before his bedtime, the rabbit goes around the room and notices items within eye sight and says goodnight to all of them. As the story continues, the rabbit gets more and more tired before finally saying “Goodnight noises everywhere,” just as he falls asleep. 

The Runaway Bunny is the tale of a little bunny who tells his mother that he is going to run away, becoming variously a fish, a rock on the mountain, a crocus in a hidden garden, a bird, a sailboat, a circus acrobat, and finally a little boy, until he resigns himself to stay where he is and remain her little bunny. Whimsical puppetry and evocative original music will bring a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations.
