Can you find? series. New Frontier Publishing, 2019. ISBN: 9781925594362.
(Age: 0-3) Board Book. Themes: Farms. This is one in a new series for babies called Can you find? (others are Under the ocean, In the forest, At the beach). Nancy's previous titles have included the ZenTails and Mad Dog the chef series. In this book, each page says 'On the farm there is . . . ' and then shows and names three things found on the farm (cows, a pitchfork, hay, a farmhouse, a scarecrow, a wheelbarrow, a mower etc. The illustrations are large, happy and fun but quite realistically drawn. Each page has a contrasting background colour. The last page says 'Can you find all the things on the farm?' and shows all of the illustrations included within the previous pages. These are simple but impressive early vocabulary books that encourage parent-child interaction and positive book experiences for babies.
