All Ears, All Eyes - Richard Jackson, Katherine Tillotson

Staff Pick

As nighttime begins to settle in over the forest, listen. What do you hear? Can you catch the sound of a porcupine as it “scoots between roots”? Now, what do you see? Perhaps there is a creature hiding in the shadows. Might it be a fox, a deer, or a mouse? Author Richard Jackson’s lyrical language evokes the sounds of the darkness, while Katherine Tillotson’s soft, richly-hued illustrations gently bid goodnight to the sun in All Ears, All Eyes (Atheneum, $17.99). Ages 3-6.
