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.

Jasmine’s garden is glorious, a cornucopia of “apples and apricots, kiwis and kumquats, papayas, peaches and passion fruit.” The only problem is that the fruit keeps disappearing during the night. Jasmine’s curiosity leads her to The Elephant’s Garden (Boxer, $16.95), where the fruit is not only enormous, but seems to be carved from precious jewels. A comical chain of events involving her extended family—and maybe a little bit of greed— ensues; but, ultimately, everyone is satisfied with the delectable fruit from Jasmine’s own garden. This retelling of an Indian folktale, both written and gorgeously illustrated by Jane Ray, is sure to elicit a smile and make one’s mouth water. Ages 3-6.
