If I ever get around to hosting a pajama storytime, I want to read this excellent bedtime book.

In terms of gifts, I’ve already given a copy of this book away to a friend of mine who had a baby shower. There isn’t a person alive who won’t love what Averbeck and Tusa have done here. I hope Harcourt will pair the two of them together again someday so that we can see more books like this one on our shelves. Lovely in every sense of the word.

It's wonderful how this book starts with the concept of one colour, moves to many, and nicely concludes with that one colour!

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Feb 13, 2014

Alice is wide-awake and bouncing on the bed when her mother enters. After informing her mom that the only way she’ll be able to fall asleep is in a blue room (and the yellow walls make THAT pretty unlikely) her patient mother brings in different items one by one. There are lilacs and lilywhites for scent. There is tea in a cup for taste, a silky soft quilt for touch, and lullaby bells for sound. Finally, just as Alice begins to drift off to sleep, her mother turns out the light. The light of the moon comes in “bathing everything in its pale blue light.” Everything now the same color, Alice sleeps soundly in her room turned blue at last.
