Ehhh. Honestly, I thought it was boring. A little girl only likes things that are blue. But mama gets her settled down, and shows how everything is blue. ( )

Little kid going to bed is given lots of things to help her by her mama. She wants everything to be blue! and imagines it thusly. Her initial demands, and the way she is able to adapt to reality with some imagination, feels very true to life.[return][return]Not much to this, but it's a sweet going-to-bed book, and affirming of parental caretaking.

Although a 2009 Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book, this tale of a little girl who wants everything to be blue at bedtime was disappointing, both the ink, watercolor, and gouache pictures and the story line. ( )

Alice only likes the color blue, but her mother helps her to fall asleep using her other senses to enjoy things, until she turns out the light and everything turns blue. ( )

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Medium: ink, watercolor and gouache
This is a story about a little girl at bedtime, that wants everything in her room to be blue. Her mom brings in tea, and flowers, and blankets, and bells, but none of them are blue. As the little girl, (Alice), is falling to sleep, her mom shuts off the light, and the light from the moon shines through her window, making everything in her room look blue. This is a good example of a realistic fiction book, because everything that happens in the story is realistic, but the story isn't based on true events. This would be a fun story to read to a lower kindergarten class, when talking about colors.
