The Blue Hour [Isabelle Simler]

The sun has set, the day has ended, but the night hasn’t quite arrived yet. This magical twilight is known as the blue hour. Everything in nature—sky, water, flowers, birds, foxes—comes together in a symphony of blue to celebrate the merging of night and day.

With its soothing text and radiant artwork, this elegant picture book displays the majesty of nature and reminds readers that beauty is fleeting but also worth savoring.

My thoughts on this children’s book: The Blue Hour is a gorgeous children’s book filled with exquisite illustrations displaying vivid and vibrant colours. It boats neatly-crafted drawings in a vast range of blue nuances. It’s a sweet ode to nature, its wildlife and the peace and quiet of dusk.

I’m sure children will love to learn about the multiple animals represented in the book, as well as enjoy the soothing message it conveys.
