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.

A sun-warmed bed of daffodils, a tub of cool water, a fresh supply of birdseed, and a new cob of corn create A Perfect Day (Roaring Brook, $17.99) for a cat, dog, chickadee, and squirrel relaxing in their human pal Bert’s backyard. But alas! The perfection lasts only until Bear arrives. As Bert and his animal friends watch from the safety of the boy’s house, Bear helps himself to the very same pleasures the other creatures were just enjoying. Textured, mixed-media artwork by author/illustrator Lane Smith bring to life the tale of an unexpected visitor. Ages 3-6.
