Goodnight Moon (ft. Mac Barnett, Sarah Jacoby, & Loren Long)
Have you ever really thought about just how *weird* going to sleep is? On today's show, we're talking about one of the most famous children's books of all time: Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown! The bedtime story's hypnotic rhythm stays with its readers from infancy long into adulthood. HarperCollins recently published The Important Thing about Margaret Wise Brown. It's a 42 page long picture book that celebrates the late author's legacy, as well as her 42 years of life, and it's written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Sarah Jacoby. On the show, Lindsay talks with them about why they love Goodnight Moon and how their research connected them to Margaret's special world. Later in the show, we'll talk about one of Margaret Wise Brown's unpublished manuscripts, Good Day, Good Night, that was illustrated by renowned author/illustrator, Loren Long, and published in 2017. He'll talk with us about writing for kids, adapting Margaret's work with admiration, and his unique experience as an artist with colorblindness.
