Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K—There is nothing that makes this title stand out. Die-cut holes offer hints about which animal appears on the following spread. "I spy…something white that begins with an L. Baaa, baaa!" The digital illustrations appear sketchy and careless, the background of each scene has a generic look, and the whole package has the feel of having been put together with little effort, perhaps capitalizing on the success of Gibbs's I Spy with My Little Eye (Candlewick/Templar, 2011).—Heidi Estrin, Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
Kirkus Reviews
Gibbs brings a new guessing game (I Spy with My Little Eye, 2011; I Spy Under the Sea, 2012) to the youngest set. Colors, which are an essential part of the original I Spy children's game, are once again the focus of this clever die-cut formula. But this time Gibbs removes the factual clues and gives only animal sounds as hints instead. Farm animals, no less. Preschoolers everywhere are cheering. Each spread begins with the inevitable "I spy with my little eye…" and concludes with a colorful hint about a favorite barnyard friend. However, Gibbs does sneak in some letter recognition and phonemic play as well. The clue for the first animal reads: "something yellow that begins with a D." It is likely that the watery pond background and the speech bubble loudly proclaiming, "Quack, quack!" will be all the clues a youngster needs, but reinforcing the d sound adds a welcome level of early childhood learning. Gibbs' vibrant illustrations (the fiery rooster is particularly bold) and expressive eyes make this effort all the more fun. A format that engages, entertains and delights--for the third time in a row. Let's hope for more. (Picture book. 2-5)
