Sam has loved Goodnight Moon since he was a tiny baby. What baby doesn’t? It’s the perfect bedtime story. To make it even more special, we crafted this handmade, personalised version.

Keeping the rhythm of the beautiful original, Sam’s Goodnight Moon rewrote the details by using familiar items in his own room. Keeping the same number of syllables for each line, the story maintains that familiar sleepy prose but with all of his favourite things.

And on it goes…. until we’ve said goodnight to everything. We created the book using the open online photo editor Pixlr which is brilliant for this type of project. When all of the pages were complete, we had the photos printed and mounted them in a photo album.

Sam still loves the original the most :) but gets a real kick out of seeing his own little treasures in this one. And Mommy loves that it will always capture the little things in her little man’s room.
