Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Millions of readers have gone on a hunt with or for Spot in his characteristic lift-the-flap format. This book is almost as fresh as that first cry of ``Where's Spot?'' Here, he's looking for newborn animals on the farm with his father. After several false starts (a mischievous bunny ``tweets'' behind a bush, the horse hasn't foaled yet), Spot moves in on some piglets and then a few kittens. Telling Mom about it when he gets home is part of the fun, too. Bright colors reveal a hunt that is full of surprises. Young readers will welcome this new Spot book and hope his curiosity doesn't wane. Ages 1-6. (September)
Children's Literature
Spot is a charming puppy, not a tiny one, but a pretty good size. Dad announces that he has some baby animals to show Spot. Off they go around the farm. The text is interactive—sometimes it poses questions and sometimes it makes statements. Lifting the flaps reveals a little extra information about each scene and what Spot finds out. Eventually, he learns that the pig has had a litter of piglets and much to his Dad's surprise the cat has had a litter of kittens. During the reading of this book, kids will learn the proper names for baby animals. It is a sturdy book that will hold up well, and one that features character many kids have grown to love. 2003 (orig. 1987), Puffin, Ages 1 to 3.

School Library Journal
PreS-K Puppy Spot visits his tractor-driving dad on the farm. Dad sets out to show Spot some baby animals. Spot runs here and there, looking in the barn, in the stable, behind fences, and under bushes for the baby animals. He finally finds the piglets that Dad wanted to show him. Spot then finds and shows Dad some baby kittens in a laundry basket. The bright colors, simple text, and large print on heavy paper make the book attractive, but the lift-up flaps (barn doors, bushes, and gates) which open to reveal more animals are not practical for a circulating library collection. A good choice for use in a preschool story hour, though. Eldon Younce, Harper Elem . School, Kans.
