Pandemic Parody Of “Goodnight Moon” Coming This Fall

Pandemic Parody Of “Goodnight Moon” Coming This Fall

If you’ve spent any time at all with little kids, you’re probably familiar with the legendary bedtime story “Goodnight Moon.” Well, someone put a coronavirus spin on it and it’s getting published by Penguin Random House this October.

“Good Morning Zoom” takes Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved bedtime book and turns it into a tale about Zoom calls, baking bread, home schooling, and other things that have become part of our lives during the pandemic. It’s written by Lindsay Rechler, a banking exec and mother of two, and she’s donating the proceeds to coronavirus relief charities.

The author came up with the idea for the book because she wanted to find a way to talk to her own kids about what was going on in the world. Rechler was looking for a way to explain why they weren’t going to school, they weren’t seeing family and friends, and Mommy and Daddy were home a lot more. She says she thought using a story they were familiar with would help them get used to their new everyday lives and what was happening outside their home, and “Good Morning Zoom” was born.
