This book is wonderful, quiet and soothing.
"In a Blue Room" is a sweet bedtime-themed story. Tricia Tusa's soothing illustrations work in perfect tandem with Jim Averbeck's wonderful, simple text. In fact the text might even be the most wonderful part of the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It's the tale of Alice who cannot fall asleep unless her room is blue. Mama tries everything, bringing her flowers, calming tea and lullaby bells. In the end the solution to the blue room trouble is so logical as to be magic. The second part of the book reminds me a little of Margaret Wise Brown's "Goodnight Moon". It's the perfect gift for a baby shower no matter the gender of the expected newcomer.
