Yes, even if there weren't a clock right there on the nightstand, measuring the passage of time in Goodnight Moon by the distance the moon travels across the sky IS overanalytical.

And our in-house astrophysicist is asleep, so I'm going out on a limb a bit to say so, but I would think calculating and tracking lunar orbit is actually "The Astronomy of Bedtime," or "The Cosmology of Bedtime."

Cosmetology, perhaps, pertaining to the measurement of stars

LOVE this post. Gonna steal it. Neil DeGrasse Tyson should do a followup: Bedtime Cosmology. I'd buy that!

And there's also bedtime zoolology, or "did the cow's teats burn off on re-entry?"
