When Night Time Comes NearBook - 2000
It is the end of the day, and a little boy heads home on his bicycle. In his backyard are signs that night time is near--lilies are closed up and salamanders scurry to find a resting place. Inside his house are more signs--a softly lit living room, hugs from mom and dad, and little brown cat who is ready for bed. Now night time is here.The warmth and richness of Judy Pedersen's paintings makes When Night Time Comes Near a visual lullaby. As the reader turns each page, the night time sky turns from gold and bright to dark and starry. Young children will feel comforted when they realize that the end of the day is marked the same way for almost everyone: by going to sleep.
