In the moonlight, animals hoot, whirl, and sing. The night is alive with foxes, chipmunks, and bats. The beauty of the forest comes alive with sounds. “See it? Hear it? Tree fog agog, scree-scree-screeing on a log-og-og.”

The beautiful illustrations use muted colors to make the night come alive. However, some of the forest animals are hidden in the forest and are difficult to find. Younger readers may enjoy hunting for the hidden animals. Occasionally, the text will point out the animals by saying “deer here.”

The poetic language may be difficult for young readers to understand. Instead of having complete thoughts, the story jumps around. “Fox, mouse, owl, bat, this and that (was that a cat?) in our deep, dark woods. Where? There! Shhh. See it? Hear it? Whooo-whooo.”

All ears, all eyes illustrates the beauty of the natural world. Even though it is a picture book, readers will need help with the poetic language. Because the story contains so many animal sounds, the book would make an excellent story to read aloud. Despite the beautiful illustration, young readers most likely will not want to read all ears, all eyes multiple times. Without a plot or central character, the poetry may confuse readers, and the hidden animals may frustrate little readers.
