Look through each eye-catching spy hole to spot a new farmyard animal!

Down on the farm there are many colorful and noisy animals to spy. Look through the spy hole and use the clues to guess which one is next. Then turn the page to reveal the animal. Watch as young children quickly become engaged in the game — joining in with the animal noises, learning colors, and eventually recognizing the letters.

Praise For I Spy on the Farm

Preschoolers everywhere are cheering...Gibbs’ vibrant illustrations...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.
—Kirkus Reviews

This large, brightly illustrated picture book introduces farm animals, colors, and letters of the alphabet...Featuring tiny silhouettes of the animals and a question —“What do you spy with your little eyes?”— the final page is a satisfying conclusion.

Gibbs’s expertly rendered digital art combines scribbly, brightly colored animals with more subdued backgrounds in clean cutout shapes...What elevates this book from a well-executed novelty into meta-land is the final spread, on which a hole is cut all the way through the back cover board: 'What can you spy with your little eye?' Whoa—it’s the whole world.
