In a Blue Room by Jim Averbeck, illustrated by Tricia Tusa
Alice can only sleep in a blue room. But her mother keeps bringing her non-blue things just before bedtime, like flowers, orange tea and bells. Doesn't mom know that Alice only wants blue things?
She sure does! When mom turns out the light and the moon gently lights her room a perfect blue color.
What I Thought:
This book is super sweet and a great bedtime book! At first I was confused wondering where the blue was, but was pleasantly surprised in the end.
I thought the illustrations were delightful and very fitting with the story and theme.
A wonderful book, highly recommended and would be a super read aloud, especially at bedtime!
