Nicki Weiss is the author-artist of many popular picture books, including Where Does the Brown Bear Go? and If You're Happy and You Know It. After many years of creating picture books, she decided to become an elementary school teacher. She received her master's degree from Bank Street College of Education and now teaches reading and art in a public school in New York City's East Village.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-- Stars are sprinkled across a black sky, with crescent moon on high, as one by one a cat, a monkey, a camel, a dog, a seagull, and a bear appear singly against an appropriate backdrop, then reappear to form a procession. The question is asked, and repeated, where do they go when night comes? The answer each time: they are on their way home. The warmth engendered by the simple text envelops readers in a blanket of coziness and reassurance. The final scenes reveal that all of the animals are actually stuffed toys cuddled around a sleeping little boy, and, indeed, they are home. The text appears in white against a black page framed with Amish quilt colors. The color pencil pictures are naif, uncluttered, with just enough detail to engage sleepy readers. A thoroughly beguiling bedtime book which will assure many snuggly tucked in children contented dreams. --Phyllis G. Sidorsky, National Cathedral School, Washington, D . C .
