In a Blue Room by Jim Averbeck
Alice loves the color blue. As she is bouncing on the bed, her mother tells her it is time for bed. Alice tells her that she can only go to sleep in a blue room, which is a problem because her room is yellow. Alice's mother tries everything to
soothe her daughter: a warm drink, cozy comforter, flowers. Finally, she sings a lullaby to Alice and turns off the light. Immediately the room is bathed in blue
moonlight. Alice can relax and drift off to sleep in her blue room. Wonderful illustrations. The words are lyrical. One of the best bedtime books ever.
