'The Blue Hour' by Isabelle Simler is a picture book for bedtime with soothing text and beautiful illustrations.
The book is all told in varying shades of blue. As the day fades and the night comes in, the blue gets darker. Against this blue backdrop are the different animals and plants that are also blue. Like blue herons and blue whales. Bluebells and cornflowers shine off the pages. The book ends with the animals waiting silently for the night. The final page shows where are the different animals can be found in the world.
The book begins with a color chart of all the shades of blue, and I think most or all of them are used in the book. I love the progression of color from lighter to darker blue. I like the peacefulness and beauty of these pictures showing not a scary dark world, but one full of wonder. If you are looking for a beautiful picture book to share with your little one during quiet time, this is a good choice.
