The Blue Hour by Isabelle Simler - ESSENTIAL

Simler, Isabelle  The Blue Hour  PICTURE BOOK  Eerdman’s Books for Young Readers, 2017.  $18.05 Content: G.  

This book shows the time between the sun going down and the night coming.  A time the author calls the blue hour when the sky and earth are all different shades of blue.  The animals get ready to settle in for the night and the sky gradually gets darker as the book comes to an end.  

The illustrations in this book are magical.  My son kept petting the pages because the drawings have so much texture.  There are only 1-2 sentences per page and the text reads like a poem.  

EL (K-3) – ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
