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.
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.
