PreSchool-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 colours, 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.

About the Author
Eric Hill (www.funwithspot.com) left school when he was 15 and took up cartooning while working as a messenger at an art studio. He created Where's Spot? as a bedtime story for his two-year old son. It was published four years later, and the rest is history. Eric Hill passed away in July 2014.
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)
