About the Book

"Rekindles the sense of wonder we were born with. True poetry about perceiving the world around us."*

The important thing about The Important Book, from Goodnight Moon author Margaret Wise Brown, is that you let your child tell you what's important about the sun and the moon and the wind and the rain and a bug and a bee and a chair and a table and a pencil and a bear and a rainbow and a cat (if he or she wants to).

For the important thing about The Important Book is that the book resonates long after it's closed. What's most important about many familiar things—like rain and wind, apples and daisies—is suggested in rhythmic words and vivid pictures. "A perfect book. The text establishes a word game which tiny children will accept with glee," said Kirkus.

Chosen as a "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children" by the American National Education Association.
