This book was a huge favourite of mine. I used to have ALL of these books and I read them a lot because I liked the pictures. When it became an animated thing, I loved it so much! I had the VHSs and watched them everyday. I don't know when I stopped or when I grew up from it, but this series has completely escaped my memory until just recently when I read the book: "1001 Children's Books you must read before you grow up".

I am glad to have had this in my life.

This is my favorite of the Spot books we've read so far. Spot visits a farm and talks to various animals, sometimes helping with chores. The animals are cute and fun for kids to look at, and there is some subtle humor like the "Spot doesn't tell" when the cat says her job is to catch mice and one scurries by without her noticing. I think there's a little more substance to this than a few of our other Spot books.

A wonderful read from my childhood, one I’d certainly suggest for other youngsters. Whilst it is not my all-time favourite childhood read I can still recall all the details of this one meaning it certainly left a lasting impression upon my young mind.

And isn’t that what we want with children’s books, for them to leave a positive lasting impression?
