A lovely and tranquil celebration of nature

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.

This book on the pictures blew me away. I loved the detail and how even my son who need high contrast pictures was able to see the majority of the pictures. The blue hour we talk about for pictures so this was a great book to add to that discussion and its a great time for seeing some creatures! A must read to the kids!

A sweet story with beautiful illustrations. Great for one on one reading, especially at bedtime.

This book is exquisite.
I have already bought it as a gift for a nephew. I will buy others.
As well as the absolutely stunning illustrations this book gives children a sense of that time between the sun setting and the full night arriving. As you page through the book the light is gradually fading, so that by the last page it is night.
To me, it is that sense of a time of day which will lead children to a greater sense of the days around them, the changing time and also the seasons. That is the story of the book.
The artful depiction of the creatures depicted on the pages are a wonderful bonus.

Wow, what gorgeous artwork! A beautiful before-bed story and an awesome way to learn about different kinds of animals (and the colour blue!) I want to buy this book for my kids someday! Magical!
