I simply loved reading "Goodnight Moon" to my children.

My 19 year old daughter just finished her first year in college so it's been a while. But earlier in the year she was going through her old books (when she was two she would go to her room to "play books" so she kind of loves her her some books) to find books to bring to a day care class she was observing for a class she was taking.

She found her copy of "Goodnight Moon" and brought it in and asked "Mom, has anyone ever read this in a normal voice or is it always read in a quiet, night-night voice?"

I know I never read it in any other way but it did make me wonder.

Oh, how I wish I could be there. I have such fond memories of reading Goodnight Moon to Vance when he was small.

How many books are there that so many moms can say they've memorized? I'd bet not many...


Oooh, I enjoy her, have ordered the biography, and wish I were to be in NYC this weekend.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
