A collection of poetry written by "Goodnight Moon" author Margaret Wise Brown was published this month in a book entitled "Goodnight Songs."
The release by Sterling Publishing of the new children's book comes more than 65 years after Brown's "Moon" was first released.
"Goodnight Moon," one of the most popular children's books, was first published in 1947 and its author Margaret Wise Brown died a few years later in 1952.

A similar chemical reportedly is used in the creamy filling of Oreo cookies, but DuPont says its product is not used in food.

"Hills" star Spencer Pratt graduated from the University of Southern California after 10 years and now he has the official degree to prove it.
Pratt tweeted in December "Today was my last day of College @USC! Best 10 years of my life! #Trojans."
He finished 10 years after he enrolled. His stint on "The Hills" opposite wife Heidi Montag slowed his graduation.
Pratt posted a picture Thursday of his diploma with the caption, "The life changing piece of paper! #USC #Trojans #alumni #FightOn."
Pratt, 30, graduated from the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences with a degree in political science.
Could we be seeing Sen. Pratt anytime soon?
