Judy Pedersen is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts. She is the illustrator of Gather Up, Gather In by M.C. Helldorfer, which was a School Library Journal Best Book of 1994. Ms. Pedersen lives with her husband in Warwick, New York.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Using dreamy, evocative language, a child describes his neighborhood settling down for the evening, while primitive-style illustrations capture the mood. As the neighbors take in flags and lawn chairs, the boy heads indoors, but not before noticing the lilies closing their petals and the squirrels scampering into their nests. The language is at once lyrical and understandable: "When night time is here, it's time to go inside where your house feels like a warm blanket and smells like apple juice." The repetition of the title throughout provides a soothing refrain. As the book moves toward its conclusion, deep blues replace the golds and greens of early dusk. The story is reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon in her text and cadences ("Good night sun. Hello moon.-'Night Mother and Father. 'Night little brown cat"). What makes this book unique is the concept of the whole neighborhood shutting down for the night. While it has a modern suburban setting, it has a timeless feel as well. Pair this one with Kate Banks's And If the Moon Could Talk (Farrar, 1998) to create a perfect sleepy-time mood.
