I spy with my little eye…

Each page is a guessing game when you look through the keyhole to spy on the barnyard animals. Use the clues on each page to guess what animal is coming next!

Controlling the wiggles is hard to do when you have a storytime filled with toddlers. This book is particularly engaging because children love farm animals. Engage the children by asking them what each sound makes and having them guess what each animal is coming up next. This is the third book in Edward Gibb’s “I Spy” series and perhaps the best suiting for storytime. His other two books I Spy with My Little Eye and I Spy on the Sea choose complicated creatures and items too difficult for younger children to guess. This book is a good balance for fun and interaction.
