In a Blue Room by Jim Averbeck, Tricia Tusa

Alice is wide, wide awake. Mama brings flowers, tea, a quilt, even lullaby bells to help her sleep. But none of these things are blue, and Alice can sleep only in a blue room. Yet when the light goes out, a bit of magic is stirred up. Pale blue moonlight swirls into her bedroom window. Then the night swirls out, around the moon and into the universe, leaving Alice fast alseep in a most celestial blue room.

"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. 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.
